Lady Mocs Get 29th Straight Roundhouse Win
There was basketball at the Roundhouse Thursday night... the Lady Mocs hosting Alabama-Birmingham, and having some problems early on, falling behind by four points and not getting much production out of their starters.
About midway through the first half, coach Jim Foster put freshman Chesley Shumpert into the game at point guard... talk about instant gratification!
Shumpert scored 10 points in the 10 minutes she played in the first half, sparking a 16-4 run that turned a two point deficit into a 10-point halftime lead.
She only scored two points in the second half, but Ka'vonne Towns, Ashlen Dewart and Taylor Hall came to life.
Towns also finished with 12 points... Dewart and Hall had 10 apiece as the Lady Mocs get their 29th straight win at the Roundhouse, the second-longest home-winning streak in the nation behind Baylor's 60 in a row, running their season record to 3-1, with a 63-56 win.
The Lady Mocs will host Auburn Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock.By Darrell Patterson
