NEW ORLEANS, LA - The SUNO Lady Knights have come to expect big performances from April Perry and Janee Morton, the team's Pre-season All-GCAC selections.  They didn't disappoint, combining for 50 points, 13 assists and 11 rebounds in SUNO's 93-75 victory over Edward Waters.  But it was SUNO's junior center Sabrina Scott who outshone them both with an amazing performance as she scored 26 points, hauled in 19 rebounds and swatted 10 shots for a dominating triple-double.

"The scary thing is, Sabrina could put up numbers like this consistently for us," said Head Coach Elston King of Scott, who hit her first 11 shots and finished 12 of 14 from the field.  "If she realizes just how dominant she can be, both offensively and defensively, we can become a very dangerous team.  I hope this gives her the confidence to go out and be a game changer in this conference."

 

Early in the contest Coach King realized that the Tigers had no answer for Scott as she kept the Lady Knights in the contest, going a perfect 8 for 8 from the floor on her way to 16 first half points.  Perry and Morton combined for 20 more but SUNO still trailed 44-40 at the half.

"At halftime, Coach really stressed getting the ball inside", said April Perry.  "Not just in to Sabrina, but also by attacking the basket and putting the pressure on thier defense.  We also raised our focus on the defensive end and really tried to crash the boards so we could beat them in transition.  We did that and were able to get a really good win."

SUNO connected on nearly 54 percent of their shots in the second half, finishing at over 51 percent for the game.  They also dominated the glass, outrebounding the Tigers 55-32.  Forward Rose Boatner chipped in with 14 rebounds of her own.  Defensively, the Lady Knights held Edward Waters to just 32 percent shooting in the second half as they pulled away.

Coach King continued, "You worry about a letdown after a big win like we had at Xavier.  For the first 20 minutes I thought the team might've been a bit too overconfident, but they put it together and we got a great win over a solid team."

SUNO is back in action Monday afternoon when they will face Talladega at 2pm at The Castle.
