Joe Bryant is back in the win column as the head coach of the LA Sparks.

Tichia Penicheiro scored 18 and OSU product Jantel Lavender scored 12 points off the bench as the Sparks snapped a five-game losing streak with an 84-74 win over the San Antonio Silver Stars on Tuesday night.

Bryant, the father of Lakers’ star Kobe, took over the Sparks head job on Sunday after the firing of Jennifer Gillom. This is his second stint as coach of the Sparks (5-6). He previously coached them from August 2005 through the end of the 2006 season.

The Sparks scored 49 points off the bench.
