The Lady Tigers win 62-54
So we lose to #14 TAMU.......lost to #12 Tennessee...........but beat #9 Georgia. Go figure.......
But I ain't complainin'.
Kudos to Nikki today for doing an EXCELLENT coaching job...................especially in regards to managing player's minutes. We only had nine players and all nine played significant minutes, which helped the starters be a lot fresher down the stretch. Both Youngblood and Lutley gave the team big minutes today!
Offensively, Webb, Kenney, and Plaisance carried the team but we got GREAT defense from McKinney, Ballard, and Youngblood as well. The wierdest stat line of the day has to be Ballard with 6 pts on 2-17 shooting
but at the same time with 15 rebounds
and two steals......from a 5'9" guard. I've never seen a stat line like that from a guard.
Now, its time to use this game as a springboard. We need to win AT LEAST 3 of the next five games.......and four of those games are definitely winnable (TAMU in College Station will be tough).
With that being said, great job by the Lady Tigers today!
Webb 12 pts 5 reb
Kenney 11 pts 5 ast 4 reb
Plaisance 13 pts 9 reb 3 blk
Youngblood 7 pts (3-4 shooting) 4 reb
Lutley 7 pts 2 reb
