Women's Basketball - Tue, Dec. 11, 2012
New Orleans, LA - The SUNO Lady Knights were hoping that a ten day layoff wouldn't affect their play, but for the first twenty minutes of their contest against the visiting Spring Hill Badgers, SUNO was out of sync.  The team shot just 24 percent for the half, including 1-9 from 3 point range and turned the ball over 11 times.  Fortunately, the second half was a completely different story. "We didn't come out with any aggression", said Head Coach Elston King.  "Our team was very passive.  Players who had match ups we felt we could exploit weren't looking for their shots and we gave away a lot of opportunities.  I was glad to see that in the second half, the ladies played with a sense of urgency and looked a lot more like I expected them to."

In the second half, SUNO turned up the pressure defensively.  The Lady Knights forced Spring Hill into 32 turnovers and allowed the Badgers to shoot just 28 percent from the field for the game.  SUNO's starting five, led by Alisha Drayton and Janee Morton (16 points apiece) combined for 60 of the Lady Knights' 68 points and 35 of the team's 47 rebounds.

SUNO heads out on the road for the second of this home and home series on December 15 at Spring Hill.
