TU women vs Salem International
November 12, 2011 - Zach Baker
Salem International is having trouble with the TU defense, and has had 5 miscues in five minutes plus. Karli Mast had seven of the Dragons first nine points. TU leads, 9-4.
Tiffin's offense has been a little cold, but at this point it doesn't matter because of good defense and strong offensive rebounding. With 11:22 left, Dragons lead, 13-4.
TU leads, 15-6. Salem International is playing aggressive defense, but the offense is just not working right now. TU has forced turnovers, but a lot of the Tigers' turnovers have been unforced. 8:47 left in half.
It's been a long time since the Tigers have scored. TU leads 23-6. Nice to see Deidra Brown back on the court after missing practically all of last season.
TU leads, 31-7 at half.
At the first media timeout of the second half, and the Tigers already have scored more points in this half than they did in the last. It's 42-16 TU,14:28 remains in regulation.
About 10 minutes left, TU leads 49-20. Mandy Jaeb has 10, Jessica Harris has seven, Mast has nine.
Final media timeout--TU leads 55-23. Great defensive effort from the Dragons here, and it looks like the bench will be deeper than in the past. It's a good sign, but then, I'm expecting big things from this group this year.
