Photo and special mention highlight success she's enjoying in Tennessee
The loss drops the Lady Pioneers to 1-6 on the year. They have been in every contest, and could realistically be 6-1.
The biggest problem seems to be that the shots just arent falling. Defensively, teams are finding a slight crack in Tusculums post game, but on the offensive end of the floor, the Lady Pioneers are getting looks at the basket. The shots just wont fall through the cylinder.
All-South Atlantic Conference senior Julie Maples scored only three points Thursday night. But, McBride and the Lady Pioneers know they cant rely on one person every night. Everyone on the team needs to step up and put some points on the board.
As a team, Tusculum shot only 31.3 percent for the game (15-of-48). After the Lady Railsplitters sorry start where they hit only one of their first 13 shots, things picked up, and they finished the game by shooting 39.3 percent (22-of-56).
A bright spot for Tusculum was newcomer Vanessa Luciania, who made her first appearance of the season with eight points that helped keep Tusculum in the lead until late in the first half when LMU went on a run and seized the lead for good.
Amber Redding led Tusculum under the basket with eight rebounds. Candice Foster had four steals.
LMUs Mareme Konate led the game with 13 points. Jamie Jackson scored 10 for the Lady Railsplitters (4-2).
