Shock Blow Out Seattle In Exhibition Finale
Every player that took the floor for Tulsa scored as the Shock wrapped up the preseason with an 86-60 blowout win over the Seattle Storm Friday afternoon at the BOK Center. The Shock scored nine straight points in the first quarter to grab an early lead and never lost it, pushing the advantage to eleven in the second quarter and 15 at the end of three. Seattle had a hard time holding onto the ball. The Storm committed 35 turnovers. Riquna Williams and Glory Johnson each scored ten points to lead the Shock. Jene Morris, Jennifer Lacy and Ivory Latta added nine apiece and Temeka Johnson scored eight. Victoria Dunlap led Seattle with 13 points. The game was missing some star power as Seattle's Lauren Jackson and Sue Bird are preparing for the Olympics as is Tulsa's Liz Cambage, Seattle's Silvia Dominguez is stuck in Spain with visa troubles and Tulsa's Tiffany Jackson is sidelined for the season because she's pregnant. Tulsa begins the 2012 regular season May 19th at home against the San Antonio Silver Stars at the BOK Center.
