Adding up

Storm forward Wendy Palmer scored her 3,000-career point on a turnaround layin off a feed from guard Betty Lennox with 2:46 remaining in the second quarter. The bucket gave Seattle a 31-28 lead over San Antonio and Palmer was honored with a standing ovation during a timeout moments later.
San Antonio coach Dan Hughes praised Palmer before the game. He coached her for one season in 2005, using her veteran leadership to help develop a young Silver Stars team.
“She plays the game like a coach,” said Hughes of Palmer, who is an assistant at Virginia Commenwealth University. “She plays the game so intelligently. If anything has improved, it’s her perimeter shooting. I hope she stays healthy. She doesn’t have to be completely healthy against us, but for everybody else. She was a pleasure to coach.”
Palmer is playing after tearing her Achilles in June last summer.
