Stars’ Top 15 Moments in History: #14

Silver Stars Acquire Ruth Riley & Becky Hammon

As the Stars head into their 15th season in San Antonio, we’ll be taking a look back at the top 15 moments in Stars history. Below is our #14 moment, when the team acquired Ruth Riley and Becky Hammon.


During the 2007 offseason, the team made big strides to turn around the struggling franchise by trading for Ruth Riley and trading the No. 2 overall pick in the draft to New York in exchange for Becky Hammon. As a result, the Stars made the playoffs for five consecutive seasons.
