SAN DIEGO -- Shawnta Rogers might have been the smallest player on the court, but you wouldn't have known it by looking at the stat sheet.

Rogers, a 5-foot-4 guard, and Monty Wilson combined for 40 points last night to lead the BayRunners to only their second road victory of the season, 91-75, over the San Diego Stingrays (5-25).

The BayRunners (10-18) trailed throughout much of the first half, but Rogers kept them close with three three-pointers.

Twelve of Wilson's 20 points came in the first half.

Rogers, who scored 20 points, had four rebounds and five assists.

"If I can get the minutes I'll contribute," Rogers said. "It's just a matter of me getting minutes, getting in a rhythm and getting everyone on the same page."

Elliott was limited to only two points in the first half, but he finished with a game-high 25 points.

"Tonight we played defense the way we are capable of playing defense," BayRunners Coach Herb Brown said. "If we do this, we will be a good team."

The BayRunners played most of the game without LaMarr Greer, their leading scorer in the past three games. Greer strained a thigh muscle in Sunday's game against San Diego and aggravated it in Tuesday's practice.
