Another Big Win For The Lady Blues

Another Big Win For The Lady Blues

It was another big win for the Lady Blues on Friday night as they took down fellow USCAA opponent Mid-Atlantic Christian 88-40. All 16 players in uniform saw plenty of action, with 15 of the 16 making it to the scoring column.

The Lady Blues held the Mustangs to just two field goals in the first quarter while rounding up 14 made field goals and building a 33-4 first quarter lead. Coach Bailey would go to his bench early in this one and replaced the starters just six minutes into the ball game. Lauryn Hatfield and Ameera McClain would put up six points apiece in the opening quarter, as would Derricka Bramwell off the bench.

Haley McComas who would score 5 points and Natori Nesbit would add four points in a balanced scoring attack that would see the home team build their lead to 35 by the end off the half and head into the locker room at halftime with a 51-16 lead.

The start of the second half would look very similar to the previous two quarters as the Lady Blues would build a as much as a 44-point lead while hold the visitors scoreless for almost seven minutes of the third period.

With no starter re-entering the game after just 4 minutes into the second half, Coach Bailey would rotate his bench the entire fourth and would see them close-out the game by continuing to build their lead and play stingy defense; once again holding the visitors for almost five minutes without scoring. Holly Toler would lead the fourth quarter with 6 points on 3 of 3 shooting.

For the game, it was a very balanced scoring attack as only one Lady Blue broke into double figures, McComas with 10. Nesbit, Toler, and Ericah Burton would each add 8 apiece. McComas, Jia Coppola, and Brooke Russell would each tie for game high 6 rebounds, while Alexus Tucker would add 7 assists.

The Lady Blues will be at home one more time before the Holiday Break when they take on West Virginia Tech on Friday, December 20. Tip-Off is slated for 6:00 p.m.
