Ferris State at TU women
December 1, 2011 - Zach Baker
Ball pressure, and plenty of it. TU has been pressuring the heck out of Ferris State, and the Dragons are hitting the outside shot. That has created an 11-4 TU edge at the 14:48 mark. Holly Focke is playing really well on both ends, at one point rebounding her own free throw miss.
Not sure what was in the water, but TU is killing it right now on both ends. Jillian Adam's short jumper makes it 18-5 at the 12:53 mark.
Ferris State's Christina Branch just hit a short jumper and was fouled. At the second media stop, it's 23-13 TU. Now 23-14 as she makes the throw at the 9:10 mark. Moments ago the lead was 32-16, but Ferris State has scored five straight points, with Tricia Principe's deep 3 happening moments ago. It's 34-21 after Jaeb scores a layup, then a steal by Amanda Baute sets up two foul shots for TU. The amazing thing? TU's leading by 13 and Jaeb has 3 points.
We go to halftime with TU leading 40-28. It finished the first half chilly, making just one basket in the final 3 1/2 minutes.
Early in the second half, and Tiffin leads Ferris State, 48-29. TU has opened the half on an 8-1 run. Jenifer Johnston just hit her third 3 of the game, and she has 13. Jess Harris has 6 boards, 4 this half, and we're at the 16:40 mark.
TU leads 50-32, 14:57 left in half. TU actually was losing the rebounding battle, but the defense and shooting have been so strong it hasn't mattered.
Dragons lead is at their highest point, 55-36, with a little less than 11 minutes left.
Jaeb was fouled as she made a jumper. With 9:43 left, it's 57-36. TU wins, 78-49.
