Diggins Shines As The Shock Earn A Road Win
Skylar Diggins scored 32 points in her return to Indiana to help the Tulsa Shock beat the Fever 107-102 in overtime Wednesday night.
The South Bend native and former Notre Dame star hit a 3-pointer with 2.8 seconds left in regulation to force overtime. She also had seven rebounds and four assists in Tulsa's comeback victory.
Diggins' 3-point play midway through the overtime period gave Tulsa (6-7) a 102-96 advantage.
''They're very aggressive and tough and they make it tough to get to the basket,'' Diggins said. ''I was just finally able to get some things going, get some baskets in transition and some shots finally started falling down.''
The Fever cut it to 102-99 on Briann January's 3-pointer with 2:21 left. But a minute later, Diggins set up Odyssey Sims for a layup that put the game away.
Shavonte Zellous led Indiana (6-7) with 33 points. Karima Christmas added 17 points, and Marissa Coleman had 14 points and eight rebounds.
The Shock have now won five of its last seven games, and currently sit in fourth place in the Western Conference.
