(TULSA) - Odyssey Sims scored 21 points, Glory Johnson had 19 points and 13 rebounds, and the Tulsa Shock beat the Seattle Storm 80-74 on Tuesday night. Johnson's double-double was her 15th of the season for Tulsa (10-17). Roneeka Hodges added a season-high 16 points, and Skylar Diggins had 11 to become the Shock's single-season scoring leader with 564 points. Sue Bird scored 15 point, and Tanisha Wright added 14 for Seattle (9-19). Camille Little and Crystal Langhorne had 13 points each. Diggins entered the game seven points from becoming the franchise's single-season scoring leader. Deanna Nolan held the previous mark of 559, set in 2009 when the team was still in Detroit. Diggins struggled to get any offense going in the first half and went 1 for 5 from the field with four points, but the second-year guard made a 3-pointer to open the second half and break Nolan's record.
