The Lady Dawgs won their third in a row and gained their biggest win of the season with a 67-58 win over previously unbeaten 5th ranked Auburn at Stegman Thursday evening. Angel Robinson scored 17. Phillips, Puelo and Marshall all were in double figures, as well. The Dawgs used stingy D to win, holding the Lady War Tigers to just 33% shooting from the field.
A couple of weeks ago, the Lady Dawgs were staring at a potential 11-10 record with a 1-5 record in the conference at this point in the season, records that would have made a NCAA run difficult with games on the road against ranked Tennessee, Vandy and Auburn and a home date to finish the season against Florida. Now, they are 14-7 (4-2) and have marquee wins over ranked teams. This is the turn around they needed.
“We’ve started climbing out of the hole,” Landers said. “And character will allow you to do that.”
Yer damn skippy.
