AUBURN HILLS, Mich. — Cheryl Ford had 17 points and 14 rebounds to lead the Detroit Shock over the Minnesota Lynx 78-69 Wednesday night.
Minnesota's Seimone Augustus, the No. 1 pick in April's draft, scored 10 points in the first half before limping back to the locker room with an ice pack on her left ankle. She started the second half, but was obviously struggling and sat out most of the third quarter.
"I just tweaked it," she said while wearing an ice-filled boot. "It's fine. I just missed a couple shots that we needed to have."
Ruth Riley and Swin Cash each scored 14 for the Shock (1-1). Augustus scored 15.
