She is shooting the ball well. (She is 16-24 from the field in the last two games). I thought Andrea Gaines made a big difference as she made key steals and grabbed key rebounds for us tonight. Her steals allowed us to generate our fast break offense. She really came off the bench and gave us a spark.

“I am also happy with the way Krystal Scott played as she committed 0 turnovers in 38 minutes of play. I give Wofford a lot of credit. They executed well and gave a great effort. They are a well-coached team.”
