Saturday night's WNBA action featured the San Antonio Stars hosting the Connecticut Sun. The game featured a Stars team in search of its first win of the season. Meanwhile, Connecticut was trying to grab just its second for their WNBA campaign, as both teams were sitting at the bottom of their respective conferences. When it was all said and done, Sun player Courtney Williams recorded a new career-high in points to help her team win on the road. Here's how the Connecticut Sun grabbed the 85-77 victory.

Game recap

After finding themselves down 19-15 after one quarter, the Connecticut Sun went on a second quarter surge, outscoring the Stars 25-16 to take a lead into halftime.

The Sun continued that trend with a 23-16 third quarter and ultimately pulled away in the fourth en route to an 85-77 victory.

Starter Alyssa Thomas had 18 points on 7-for-14 field goal shooting, while teammate Jonquel Jones finished with nine points and a team-high 14 rebounds. Jones continues to lead the WNBA in rebounding this season as she averages over 12 boards per game. However, it was Courtney Williams coming off the bench to score her career-high of 23 points that made the difference in tonight's victory. The Connecticut Sun guard was 10-for-11 from the field and also snatched 10 rebounds in the team's win.

For the losing side, Kayla McBride led all Stars' players with 27 points on 7-for-14 shooting.

She also grabbed six rebounds. Rookie Kelsey Plum started and was just 3-for-10 from the field, finishing with eight points, but she also dished out seven assists, recorded three steals, and had three rebounds as well. As a team, San Antonio shot 40.3 percent, compared to 44.6 percent for the visiting Sun.

Connecticut barely won the battle of the boards 39-37 as well.

What's up next

Tonight's win moves the Connecticut Sun to a 2-5 record overall. They're just below fourth place in the Eastern Conference standings, behind the 3-4 Indiana Fever. Next up for the Sun will be a home game where they'll host the conference-leading Atlanta Dream.

That game is a week from tonight on Saturday, June 10th at 7 p.m. Eastern Time.

The San Antonio Stars remain winless and drop to 0-7 for their season. That has them at the bottom of the Western Conference standings, just like last season. They'll get a chance to get that first win of the WNBA season on Tuesday, June 6th when they host the Seattle Storm at 8 p.m. Eastern Time.
