SEATTLE (AP) _ Shalonda Enis was at her best for the Seattle Reign.
``I don't think I've ever seen her as hot as she was tonight. When we weren't scoring, Shalonda still was,'' teammate Kate Starbird said after Seattle beat the Philadelphia Rage 86-79 on Wednesday night in the ABL.
Enis had 33 points, 12 rebounds and six assists. She was 12-for-19 from the field, including 3-for-6 from 3-point range.
``Sometimes they fall and sometimes they don't,'' Enis said. ``I've got that hunger to win, and I'm tired of losing.''
In the other ABL game Wednesday night, Columbus beat San Jose 96-70.
Aycock, Val Whiting and Starbird each had 11 points for the Reign (5-8). Adrienne Goodson led the Rage (5-6) with 20 points, and Dawn Staley had 16.
``We could not get the ball to bounce our way, or the game to go our way,'' said Philadelphia coach Lisa Boyer, whose team has lost four straight. ``Seattle played with poise and made some big shots.''
