Among the guards, sophomore Neika Smith finished with four points and three assists. Senior Brooke Faulkner added three points. No other player had more than two points.

Despite the lack of offense from her guards, Friday night, head coach Carrie Daniels still was pleased with her team’s performance during the 14-minute scrimmage.

“I felt like it was a great effort,” said Daniels. “We got up and down the court. We did a great job of feeding the posts inside and they did a good job finishing. We still have to work on ball pressure defensively and making good decisions offensively. Another thing we did well was  we were conscious of running our offense. The past few days in practice we were a little inpatient and weren’t getting into our sets.”
