Yes I am interested in hearing what Merrier Terrier thinks now. And not only a big win but C. Stokes a freshman was the star of the game. Two other freshmen (or should we say freshladies) played too as well as two sophomores. So looks like we have a young team but it is balanced by several upperclassmen too. The future looks bright for the Lady Terriers. However one game does not make a season so the Lady Terriers need to stay focused and not relax. The season is very young and anything can happen. But I felt that after playing Chatt and Sam at their places fairly tough that their was some hope for a good season. Great win ladies !!!!!!

Great win, but I'm sure the ladies would have rather beaten Samford and Chattanooga. Conference games are just more important. I can't get overly excited over a non-conference win no matter who it's against (unless it's in the NCAA tourney).

I think it's awesome! This team is deep. Love the play of Stokes. The ladies now have a point that really pushes the ball. Last year they had talent - just not enough legs (9 players) as the season went on. I think they became tired. This year they have enough players with talent to stay fresh on the court. Coach Farmer will be able to keep pressure on his opponents by using his bench the entire game. Motley is playing "HUGE" right now. The freshmen seem to have caught their stride and the team has great balance. Can't say enough about this victory.
