  1. Im sure coach Moren will zero in on the 6 TO and be especially proud of that fact. Wow what a great third quarter 34-11. Nice to see Royster give some nice minutes and even Danielle scored at the end , in fact every one available to play scored. Nice bounce back win. GT sounds like a very tough upcoming opponent.

  2. Nice to see our girls come back to play well after a tough loss Friday. Our shooting returned hitting 51% from the floor. Good to see Royster becoming more acclimated to Division 1 basketball with 5 points and 6 rebounds in 16 minutes. 83 % from the free throw line is a positive along with only 6 turnovers which has been an issue so far this season. One other very encouraging team statistic was the 46% three point shooting. Jenn Anderson’s 10 points, 3 rebounds and 2 blocks in 14 minutes of play was good to see. Jess Walter is starting to return to her old ways with 16 minutes of play yesterday, as the season moves on she will become more and more important to the success of our team. All in all it was a terrific game for our girls.
