    The Shock returned from the long WNBA All-Star
break layoff with a 91-83 Friday night home court
win over Minnesota.
    The defending WNBA Champions entered the break
in last place in the Eastern Conference, but still believe
they can be a playoff team.
    The Shock, who led all the way, held a slim 41-39
halftime lead over the Lynx and saw Minnesota scramble
back to within 72-71 with 4-mins to play. However, Detroit's Alexis Hornbuckle
converted a 3-point play and then sank a long-range triple to put the breaks on
Minny's rally try.
    Deanna Nolan scored a game-high 22-P with a co-game-high 6-A for the Shock. Taj
McWilliams had 17-P, 6-RB & 6-A. Shavonte Zellous came off the bench to add 15-P. Cheryl
Ford had 12-P plus a game-high 9-RB. Hornbuckle potted 9-P.
    Charde Houston & Rashanda McCants each scored 14-P Quanitra Hollingsworth added
12-P for Minnesota. Tasha Humphrey had 11-P and Kelly Miller 10-P.
    The Shock are now 6-9 after winning four of their last six.
    Minnesota is 10-9 after losing its second straight.  


SHOCK H-COACH RICK MAHORN:   "It was a great spark (by Hornbuckle). It helped a lot
because we had an offensive drought and that stopped it."

SHOCK GD DEANNA NOLAN:   "There's still 19 games left. There's plenty of time for us to
get on a roll and start playing the kind of basketball that's going to make us a playoff team."

SHOCK GD ALEXIS HORNBUCKLE:   "I just want to stay in the game and do whatever I can.
The coaches keep saying shoot if you've got a look, so I took it."
