Liked (only saw the final ten minutes)
- Chelsea Mason’s jump shot was working tonight
- The defense hounded Georgia Southern and didn’t give up any easy baskets.
- They worked the ball inside to Gideon, who did a solid job with her back tot he basket.
- Forced turnovers, got the 50/50 balls and just plain wanted to win more than GSU.
- Shot a torrid 54% in the second half.
- Had 21 offensive rebounds
- Ashley Holliday shot 60% from three.
- In the short time that I watched, Shadelly “Chachi” Guzman was too careless with the ball for my liking. She might be one turnover away from being benched for Greg McElroy (not really!).
- The team shot 17% in the first half
- Had more turnovers than GSU.
