SAN ANTONIO (AP) _ Danielle Adams had 20 points and the San Antonio Silver Stars ended a four-game skid with a 60-52 victory over the Connecticut Sun on Saturday.

Jia Perkins added 15 points and Danielle Robinson had 10 points for San Antonio (5-12), which held the Sun to 28 percent shooting.

The Sun (4-11) had only four points in the third quarter and 17 total for the second half.

Tina Charles, who had 18 points, was the only player in double figures for Connecticut in a matchup of struggling teams.

The victory prompted Dan Hughes to address the crowd after the game for the first time as Silver Stars coach.

"I can’t thank you enough," Hughes said. "You hang with us; we’re going to keep working. But thank you for giving the team the energy that they needed tonight."

Both offenses struggled in the third quarter.

Connecticut failed to score after Charles’ jumper with 6:20 left in the quarter. San Antonio’s only points over that same span were a jumper by Shenise Johnson and a layup by Perkins.

Perkins had nine of San Antonio’s 11 points in the quarter.

The Silver Stars took a 15-7 lead in the first quarter, pushing the ball into the lane for three layups and a 5-foot hook shot.

San Antonio’s lead disappeared after it went scoreless for 3 minutes early in the second quarter.

Connecticut only scored six points over those same 3 minutes, including a pair of free throws, while going 2 for 4 from the field.
