Ladies are in position to be very competitive in the league, for the first time in a long time. But as Merrier points out, it is a long season ... we shall see. Their style of play is most encouraging.

Up 15 at the half. Impressed with our composure, and focus on defense.

With four players out injured when the game started, we lose two more good ones (Washington and Blakeney) early in the second half of this one!

Hung on to win 68-59. Very courageous, great poise. Are now 10-5, more wins than all last year. Now have about seven healthy players. Guts.

I did not know about the injuries - either the ones before or after the WCU game. How bad are the injuries ? Hopefully at least some or most will be back soon. Women' bball must be very physical. This win is more impressive with that many players out. Way to go Ladies !!!!!

Watching our girls on the tube now. It is time for the call out to the students left on campus during Interim-WE NEED BODIES! We are down to 7 dressed players, and it will soon begin to really wear on those having to play all the minutes. Surely we have some ladies who played high school basketball who would love to catch their 15 minutes of fame!

UNCG coming at us hard, but we are up by 2 at halftime. Watching how these girls play smart and with such composure and determination is nothing short of inspirational.

Yep- an amazing win, given all the adversity. We have some good players, but as Lawdog says, they play smart.

Despite missing many open shots, including 3s, late, we won by six against a good UNCG group. Traynor and Pinholser really stepped up. Holy smoke.
Now we get a well-deserved week off.

SMART DEFENSE saved the day. Three players each played 40 minutes.

Ladies done in tonight against Furman by a subpar third quarter. http://woffordterriers.com/news/2017/1/ ... urman.aspx
