Led by the sterling play of hoopsters Becky Hammon and Sophia Young, perennial playoff contenders the San Antonio Silver Stars chase their first-ever championship after a disappointing defeat in last year's conference semifinals to the 2011 champions the Minnesota Lynx. Hammon, a seven-time WNBA All-Star who holds an NCAA record for free throws and blowing the largest bubblegum bubble, has posted an above-0.850 free-throw percentage and averaged more than 17 points per game early this season. Young, the team’s standout forward, averages around right rebounds and 13 points per game this year.
With nearly 500 TV monitors and a scintillating collection of artwork, the AT&T Center keeps eyes amused between jump shots and layups as the Silver Stars take on Western Conference rivals the Seattle Storm and the venerable Los Angeles Sparks. After the June 9 game against the Storm, audiences can listen to speeches given by former University of Texas quarterback and current Cleveland Brown Colt McCoy and Silver Stars guard Danielle Robinson, along with music from Mark B. Spencer and the Greater Love Praise Band. The June 28 game against the Sparks celebrates The Fox's birthday, giving kids a chance to celebrate with the team’s mascot by dancing, competing in trivia games, and filling out educational workbooks that explain what presents are socially acceptable to give a fox on his birthday.
