Atlanta Dream continues winless ways

Add this share

Ouch, that one stung.

The Atlanta Dream, struggling to find their footing in the WNBA, lost again on Wednesday. That puts their winless streak at 11, the second-longest winless stretch to open a season in the women’s pro league.

Two more consecutive losses and they tie Detroit, which opened the 2002 season with 13 in the L column.

Their were some high points in the 81-66 loss to San Antonio: The Dream had 17 offensive rebounds and limited the Silver Stars to five, Stacey Lovelace scored season highs in points (18), steals (5) and blocks (3), Tamera Young chipped in a career-high 13 rebounds and Karen Feenstra added all seven of her points in the fourth quarter.

The Dream heads to Washington on Friday and plays at home again on Sunday.

“We have to carry over the good things we did tonight,” says Marynell Meadors, the Dream head coach and general manager. “We just missed a lot of shots. I am confident we can go into Washington and make those shots.”
