CULLOWHEE, N.C. (Feb. 3, 2018) – ETSU’s seniors made a great impact on tonight’s 76-46 win over Western Carolina on Saturday night inside the Ramsey Center. The seniors all finished in double figures, as the Bucs improved to 7-2 in conference play, while the Catamounts fell to 0-9.
Inside the Numbers
The Bucs will travel to Chattanooga to take on the Mocs next Saturday, Feb. 10 at 2:00 p.m.
“I’m really pleased with the bounce back after a disappointing effort shown on Thursday,” said head coach Brittney Ezell. “We showed a lot of resiliency and that’s something we’ve done a couple times after conference losses. I’ve never had a game where so many people were that close to double-doubles. I thought Malloree was really assertive today and we needed that from her to step up. Tianna was back to her normal self today. Brittney Snowden was phenemonal. Alayjah was really good. I thought Sadasia was good. I could go up and down the list and say good things about everybody. I’m really pleased with the overall effort. Now we’ll get a couple of days off before we head to Chattanooga. I’m really excited about being home and feel good about being 7-2 right now.
On all three seniors scoring in double figures… “That’s what seniors are supposed to do. The younger players will feed off that and hopefully it’ll build some confidence with our seniors. Shy, Tianna, and Mal are invaluable for not only the things they do on the floor, but they are good people. They are good teammates. They work hard and you like seeing good kids being rewarded, so I’m real pleased for them.”
On Malloree Schurr recording her first career double-double… “Good for Malloree. It was a matter of time because Malloree is so aggressive on the glass. If she’ll continue to shoot with some confidence and play with some confidence, she’ll get eight and eight, if not ten and eight every night. I’m really happy for her. It’s a great stat line and her family back in Texas will be really proud to see her do that”
