Nisha Gets Her Minutes’ Worth:
Last month, Laquanisha Adams scored a career-high 12 points in just 14 minutes at Oklahoma State, then totaled 10 last Sunday in just 12 minutes against Mississippi Valley State. On Sunday, Adams was instant offense again.
Once Tech asserted itself for a 28-23 lead, the 6-foot-4 sophomore from Hinesville came off the bench to score the Jackets’ next six points on three feathery jumpers: A turnaround in the lane, a long two-pointer from the top of the key, then another turnaround made it 34-25. Adams finally misfired, but ended the half with 6 points in just 6 minutes of playing time.
For Alex, Another Restful DNP = Another First-half Outburst:
Last Sunday, after sitting out the Mississippi Valley State mismatch to rest her surgically-repaired knee, Alex Montgomery responded with 14 points in just 12 first-half minutes of Tech’s 87-69 win over Oregon.
After coach MaChelle Joseph rested Montgomery during Friday’s 94-48 win at Kennesaw State, the junior came out on fire again in Sunday’s first half. Montgomery hit her first three shots, all 3-pointers. The third gave Tech the lead for good, 24-22. She also made all four of her free throws, grabbed 5 first-half rebounds and scored 13 points in just 10 minutes of action. She finished with 17 points in 17 minutes of play.
This Just In – Ardossi Actually Missed a Shot in Alexander:
Brigitte Ardossi was perfect in last Sunday’s victory over Oregon. The senior forward hit all nine of her shots from the floor, and scored 19 points. Ardossi made her first three field goal attempts against Arizona before finally missing. Not to worry: She shot 8-for-10 from the floor, 2-for-2 from the line and scored 18 points.
