Douglas’ key 3-pointer propels East past West
SAN ANTONIO — There were the record number of first-time WNBA All-Stars and a halftime ceremony honoring the best players in WNBA history. Indiana Fever guard Katie Douglas didn’t fit into either category.
So she made her mark another way.
The four-time All-Star capped one of the closest WNBA midseason showcases ever by hitting the go-ahead 3-pointer with 56.7 seconds left, and the Eastern Conference hung on for just its third All-Star game victory over the West, 118-113 on Saturday.
At halftime, Cappie Pondexter, who led the East with 17 points, was named one of the WNBA’s Top 15 players of all-time, in celebration of this league’s 15th season.
Douglas finished with 15 points and helped the East win just its third All-Star game in 10 tries - but also third in the last four. Connecticut Sun center Tina Charles scored 15, and headlined a record group of 10 players who made their All-Star debuts in this year’s game.
Swin Cash led the West with 21 points and 12 rebounds and was named MVP for the second time.
