St. Aug Falls 81-68 To Fayetteville State

Posted February 3, 2013

— Saint Augustine’s University was good in the first half, but lost its momentum in the second half of an 81-68 CIAA women’s basketball loss to Fayetteville State University at Capel Arena on Saturday, Feb. 2, 2013.

The Lady Falcons dropped to 10-10 overall, 6-5 in the CIAA and 3-2 in the Southern Division. The Lady Broncos improved to 18-3 overall, 10-1 in the CIAA and 4-1 in the Southern Division. Both teams were in a three-way tie for first place in the division entering the contest.

Sophomore forward Briana Arrington (Richmond, Va.) led the Lady Falcons with 12 points including seven in the first half when the Lady Falcons outplayed the Lady Broncos, who were coming off a big win over defending national champion and nationally-ranked Shaw in their last game. The Lady Falcons led 34-29 at halftime after freshman guard Porscha Walton (Chesterfield, Va.) banked in a three-point shot right before the horn sounded.

The second half was all Lady Broncos, however. They outscored the Lady Falcons 52-34 in the final 20 minutes to win by double digits. The 52 points were the second-most points scored by an opponent this season.

“I thought our kids played hard in the first half but we didn't put two halves together,” St. Aug Head Coach Rachel Bullard said. “I'm disappointed in that but it’s not the end of the world. We will continue to work hard and bounce back from this loss.”

One positive to take away from the game was the play of Arrington, a 6-1 reserve forward who scored a season-high in points and was two off her career-high. She was 5 of 9 from the floor and added six rebounds. Arrington was assertive on both ends of the floor and gave the Lady Falcons an inside threat against the Lady Broncos. This was the second game Arrington scored in double figures this season.

Arrington was one of four double-figure scorers for the Lady Falcons. Freshman guard Lakiya Rouse (Greensboro, N.C.) added a career-high 11 points in addition to seven rebounds while Walton and freshman guard Jeanne-Marie Wilson (Temple Hills, Md.) both scored 10 points. Arrington and Wilson sparked the Lady Falcons to a 41-13 advantage in bench points.

Wilson joined Arrington with seven-first half points for the Lady Falcons, who shot out to a 7-0 lead. The fast start sparked the Lady Falcons even when the Lady Broncos came back to gain the lead at 29-27. The Lady Falcons ended the half with a 7-0 run including Walton’s last-second three-pointer to go ahead at the half.

Turnovers would eventually cost the Lady Falcons. The Lady Broncos forced 15 turnovers and scored 20 points off them in the second half. For the game, the Lady Falcons committed 32 turnovers which turned into 33 Lady Bronco points.

The Lady Falcons also didn’t have an answer for the one-two punch of inside player Shuanda Ashford (24 points, 12 rebounds) and guard Kristen Hanzer (23 points, 9 rebounds, 5 assists, 5 steals). The duo combined for 28 points in the second half. Britney Whitehead added 10 points for the game for the Lady Broncos.

The Lady Falcons play again next Saturday on Feb. 9 at Winston-Salem State University at the Gaines Center in Winston-Salem, N.C. Game time is 5:30 p.m. The Lady Falcons were victorious in the first meeting 59-57 in Raleigh, N.C., on Jan. 19.
