Storm hang on late to down Mercury

Seattle, Wa- Tanisha Wright scored a game-high 20 points and Seattle Storm edged Brittney Griner and the Phoenix Mercury, 75-72, on Sunday at Key Arena.

Wright shot 7-for-11 from the field and dropped in 13 of her points in the second half to help the Storm rebound from their season-opening loss to the Los Angeles Sparks.

In her second professional game, Griner tallied 17 points, seven boards and three blocks, but her efforts weren’t enough to keep the Mercury from dropping a second straight contest to start the campaign.
