The Shock got off to an 11-point lead to end the opening period and never looked back on the way to a 92-70 victory in the BOK Center.

The 22-point margin of victory marks the largest differential for a win for the program since it came to Tulsa in 2010.

Roneeka Hodges led six Shock players in double-figure scoring with a game-high 19, shooting 78 percent from the field and including 4-for-6 from behind the arc.

“We just focused on doing the same things and sticking to the game plan,” Hodges said.  “Having energy and locking down defensively; the result is that we won.”

Glory Johnson had another double-digit scoring output, her 10th in 10 games in 2013.  She earned another double-double with 14 points and 12 rebounds.

Tulsa (3-7) has a quick turn around, heading up to Minnesota to take on the West division leading Lynx (5-2).  The Shock will get national exposure on NBA TV with a start time of 6 p.m.
