Marshall Women’s basketball hit a record 16 three pointers in Saturday’s game, making it the most from any women’s basketball opponent in Hanner history.

  • Marshall managed to hit 5 three pointers in the first quarter while most GS points came from inside the paint. 
  • Marshall managed to make it hard for the Eagles by staying in a press defense on inbound plays.
  • Marshall held an 11-point lead going into the 2nd, 28-19

2nd Quarter: GS trailed by a high 19-points during the 2nd quarter. 

  • Marshall scored three times before the Eagles could get their first points in the 2nd. 
  • GS stayed fighting to get on the board, getting a couple of fast break points. The first half finished with Marshall leading by 15 

3rd Quarter: The Eagles came into the 2nd half with a different energy immediately doing what they had to catch up with Marshall  

  • The Eagles scored first in the third followed by two back to back blocks from Simone James and Terren Ward. 
  • GS also had back to back scores from Ja’nya Love-Hill and Eden Johnson. 
  • Despite the Eagles semi consistent scoring and bringing the game within single digits, Marshall still held a 16 point at the end of the third.
