Cold-shooting Lady Eagles lose big at Wofford

    SPARTANBURG, S.C. — Wofford defeated Georgia Southern, 70-55, in a Southern Conference women's basketball game Monday night, giving the Lady Eagles their second consecutive loss.
    Three Wofford players scored in double figures, including Logan Morris, who had all 10 of her points in the first half. Rachel Brittenham scored a game-high 17 points and Daniella Motley added 14 points for the Terriers (10-11, 3-9).
    GSU freshman Anna Claire Knight scored a team-high 11 points for the Lady Eagles (7-14, 3-9), who played without junior Meredyth Frye, who was sidelined because of a right ankle injury she suffered in a loss Saturday against College of Charleston.
    GSU shot just 26.6 percent (17 of 64) from the floor. The Lady Eagles were limited by early foul trouble, which kept sophomore MiMi DuBose off the court for more than half of the game.
    Wofford shot 49.1 percent (28 of 57) from the floor. The Terriers made 14 field goals in both halves and connected on 53.8 percent (14 of 26) of their attempts in the second half. Motley helped Wofford to a 45-33 rebounding advantage with a game-high nine rebounds.
    “We had to play catch-up from the very beginning,” GSU head coach Rusty Cram said. “Before we knew it they were getting shots from everywhere — inside, outside and at the line. I mean you name it, they were doing it. It was just pretty tough."
    GSU used the free-throw line along with a strong bench that provided nearly half of the team's points to outscore Wofford, 35-32, in the second half.
    GSU sophomore Jordi Cook came off the bench and scored seven points. Sophomore Aishya Wofford came off the bench and had seven points and a team-high seven rebounds.
