SEATTLE (AP) — Camille Little had 21 points and 13 rebounds and the Seattle Storm used a 13-0 first-quarter run to build a double-digit in an 88-68 victory over the Eastern Conference-leading Atlanta Dream on Thursday night.

Crystal Langhorne added 17 points and Temeka Johnson had 16 to help Seattle (11-20) keep alive its faint hopes of making the WNBA playoffs for the 11th straight season.

Tiffany Hayes had 16 points for the Dream (17-12) and Schoni Schimmel added 14. Atlanta has lost three straight and seven of its last nine.

Schimmel, last month’s WNBA All-Star game MVP, played in high school in Portland and grew up on the Umatilla Indian Reservation in northeastern Oregon.

Many in the sellout crowd of 9,686, including a large number from several Pacific Northwest tribes, wore Schimmel T-shirts or held up signs of support of the rookie star from Louisville. The loudest reaction of the night for any player was when Schimmel made a 3-pointer early in the second quarter.
