Simone Costa a sharpshooter from Lisbon keys Lady Bulldogs’ Opening Game WIN scoring double-digits in her first game with us including 3 of 3 from the free throw line and had 3 assists and a rebound and a steal in 26 minutes action.

The Lady Bulldogs – Top 5 Basketball Program All-Time – opened our 2016-2017 season with a Win.

 

We did commit 17 turnovers which we will have to fix but overcame that with 53 impressive rebounds 26 on the offensive glass and 27 defensive glass.  This was mostly a result of poor shooting which has marked this team for years now.

 

Mackenzie Engram is our superstar and quite the doll.  She shot 7 of 12 from the field and added 7 rebounds 3 assists a block and a steal for 15 points to pace The Lady Bulldogs.

 

Pachis Roberts had 14 points 11 rebounds and was perfect from the free throw line making 4 of 4.

 

Halle Washington had 10 rebounds and was 4 of 6 from the charity stripe which is very good.

 

Shanea Armbrister added 10 rebounds.

 

Haley Clark added 9 points 2 assists and 2 steals.

 

So we go 6-deep and a solid effort from all 6.  We will have to have  a lot more help from the rest of the bench if we’re going to have a good season.

 

We didn’t really add what we needed to in the off-season.  We need at least 2 more top players to join-in to do well.

 

We’ll have to be more selective of our shots dishing the ball to the gals who can shoot.

 

We did allow an opponent to score 21 points on us.  We can’t let one player score 21 points.  We did not commit fouls and have to play tougher against opponents who have a top scorer.  Other than that it was a good defensive effort.

 

Caliya Robinson did not play.

 

All games are on TV at this URL Link.  We play next tomorrow Sunday at 2 p.m. against a very good Mercer squad.

The men lost in their opener but added a top player in recruiting – something Mark Fox manages to do.
