By RAUL DOMINGUEZ

SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Riquna Williams set a WNBA record with 51 points to help the Tulsa Shock rout the San Antonio Silver Stars 98-65 on Sunday.

The second-year guard out of Miami surpassed the previous record of 47 points set by Phoenix's Diana Taurasi against Houston on Aug. 10, 2006 and matched by Seattle's Lauren Jackson against Washington on July 24, 2007.

Williams was 17 for 28 from the field and hit eight 3-pointers for Tulsa (11-21). She had 20 points in the third quarter after scoring 16 in the first half.

Fans were cheering for her to get the ball in the final minutes of the game.

Jia Perkins scored 21 points to lead San Antonio (11-21).
