McCoughtry's career-best 34 carry Dream to 93-87 victory

Angel McCoughtry (St. Frances) scored a career-high 34 points and the Atlanta Dream beat the San Antonio Silver Stars, 93-87, Thursday night for its seventh win in the past eight games. "She was awesome," Atlanta coach Marynell Meadors said. "She just did a lot of incredible things." McCoughtry, the No. 1 overall pick in this year's WNBA draft, was 12-for-17 from the field and 10-for-17 from the foul line. The former Louisville standout also had seven rebounds and four assists. The Dream won despite getting no points from leading scorer Chamique Holdsclaw. The seven-time All-Star, making a comeback this season, played just the first quarter and finished 0-for-3 from the field. Meadors said Holdsclaw was just being rested, adding, "Tonight was Angel's night."
