Perkins Leads Stars Past Storm, 88-81

SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Jia Perkins scored 32 points and the San Antonio Stars beat the Seattle Storm 88-81 on Saturday night.

Perkins was 11 of 18 from the floor, 8 of 8 from the line and had five assists in the game between the two worst teams in the Western Conference. Kayla McBride added 20 points and Sophia Young-Malcolm had 14.

San Antonio (7-16) got a 3-pointer early from McBride and jumped out to an 18-6 lead. McBride's 3 just before the end of the first made it 27-10, and the Stars led at the half 43-34.

Seattle (5-17) used a 14-5 run at the start of the third to draw even at 48, but San Antonio responded with an 8-2 spurt and led by five at the end of the quarter. Jewell Loyd's jumper cut it to three, but Seattle got no closer down the stretch.

Crystal Langhorne led Seattle with 29 points.

Baldwin Says He Wishes Harvin Best Of Luck In Buffalo

RENTON, Wash. (AP) - Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin says he didn't know Percy Harvin felt threatened by the Seahawks' receivers during his time in Seattle.

Baldwin said Thursday he believed any lingering beef between himself and Harvin had been "squashed" before Harvin was traded from Seattle to the New York Jets in the middle of last season. Harvin and Baldwin had a physical altercation during the preseason last year.

In an interview with ESPN on Wednesday, Harvin said he never felt accepted by Seattle's receivers and that he "had to come in and be the guy to sit in the back of the room, not say too much, kind of walk on egg shells."

Seaton has made 13 appearances with the Jamaican national team and was on the roster during this year's CONCACAF Gold Cup tournament. He was a late-game substitute in the loss to Mexico in the championship match.

sounders CONCACAFVANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) - Lamar Neagle scored for Seattle in the 72nd minute and the Sounders tied the Vancouver Whitecaps 1-1 in a CONCACAF Champions League game Wednesday night.

Tim Parker replied for the Whitecaps as both clubs opened Group F play.

Neagle scored off a free kick that looped over the penalty area to Andy Rose on the right. He sent a ball back into the box to Neagle and he fired a shot high over Paolo Tornaghi.

Parker gave the Whitecaps the lead 11 minutes earlier with a beautiful glancing backheel flick off Pedro Morales' corner that beat a Troy Perkins to the far post.

The Whitecaps fielded an entirely different starting 11 from their 3-0 road victory over Seattle on Saturday in Major League Soccer, while the Sounders made eight changes.
