Heidelberg women vs. John Carroll
February 3, 2011 - Zach Baker
With 11:35 left in the half, John Carroll leads Heidelberg, 21-12. Jenny Miller has four points for HU, whose primary problem in the early going has been the defense, which is allowing way too many open layups.
With 5:29 to go in the half, John Carroll leads, 34-23. Heidelberg is hanging in there, but needs to get some more post scoring so it doesn't just launch 3s.
Lee Jennings has 10 points at the half, but it's more about how she's setting up her teammates, as John Carroll leads at half, 54-35. Jennings has eight assists at the half, which is an incredible number, and shows how well she's playing. JCU is shooting better than 54 percent (18-33). Heidelberg, led by Kathleen Phillips' 12 points, is 13 of 33 from the floor.
Heidelberg has cut the JCU lead to 67-52 with 13:19 left. Points here would be big, but Phillips' trey misses and John Carrolll rebounds. Emilee Ritchie seems to like that right side, and drains her third 3, pushing JCU's lead back up to 18 with 12:33 left.
Ritchie has five 3s, and JCU leads, 79-61 with eight minutes left. Jennings has 16 points.
It's a 95-75 final, JCU wins.
