PLAYERS: Angel Mccoughtry
ATLANTA (AP) -- Roneeka Hodges scored 20 points, Temeka Johnson had 17 and the Tulsa Shock beat the short-handed Atlanta Dream 84-80 on Tuesday night to snap a 13-game road losing streak. The Dream played without guard Angel McCoughtry, who was suspended indefinitely before the game by new coach and general manager Fred Williams for breaking an unspecified team rule. McCoughtry is the WNBA's leading scorer and helped the U.S. women win the gold medal at the London Olympics. Erika de Souza scored 16 points and Sancho Lyttle had 14 for Atlanta (12-13), which has lost two straight and three of five. Tulsa, which dropped its last three road games of 2011, improved to 1-10 this season away from home. The Shock (5-19) announced earlier in the day it will be without Elizabeth Cambage for the rest of the season after the No. 2 overall pick in last year's WNBA draft decided not to play. Tulsa closed the first half with a 14-4 run to trim Atlanta's lead to 51-44 at the break. The Shock grabbed the lead for good when Glory Johnson converted a fast-break layup to make it 63-62 with 1:28 left in the third. Cathrine Kraayeveld hit a 3-pointer with 12.6 seconds remaining to help Atlanta close to 81-80, but Temeka Johnson hit a free throw and Lyttle's inbounds pass was stolen by Glory Johnson. Ivory Latta scored 14 points and Glory Johnson finished with 10 for Shock. Armintie Price had 13 points for the Dream. Kraayeveld finished with 11. Cambage, who won a bronze medal with Australia, had been expected to return to Tulsa on Monday but did not board her flight. The team had been promoting her expected return in Thursday night's home game against Los Angeles after she dunked in an Olympic game. Team president Steve Swetoha says Tulsa looks forward to Cambage rejoining the Shock for the 2013 season.
