Eagles offense struggles at home

Randall Hampton

A season opening win wasn’t meant to be as the Georgia Southern University women’s basketball team lost to the Florida Atlantic University Owls last night at Hanner Fieldhouse 75-55.

GSU couldn’t find a rhythm all night long on the offensive end.  The team shot 29% from the floor while FAU managed to make 47% of their shots.

GSU didn’t help its cause with 21 turnovers, six of which came from senior guard Meredith Frye.

Frye got in early foul trouble and GSU had to fight from behind the entire game.  The first lead for the Eagles came at 2:19 left in the first half.

FAU forward Chenise Miller ended the game with 16 crucial points.  She put a halt to every GSU run with a timely basketball in the paint.

Junior guard Mimi Dubose scored 17 points going 10-12 from the free throw line.  Unfortunately for the Eagles, it wasn’t enough and the game ended a 75-55 Eagle loss.

GSU will try to right the ship on Nov. 23 against Georgia State University.
