Now 4-0, this year’s squad is emerging into an offensive powerhouse, as they have scored north of 120 points in back to back games.

Myah Taylor was the star of the show on both ends of the floor with 20 points. seven assists, three rebounds, and five steals. Taylor controlled the pace from opening tip with a well versed game, ultimately showing that she is a more than capable floor general at the point.

As Taylor was one of three starters in double figures, fellow guard Jordan Danberry posted 24 points, six rebounds, and four assists. Center Jessika Carter recorded another Double double that included 19 points, 14 boards and four blocked shots. If Carter continues to be a dominant force in the paint, the Bulldogs will be dangerous going forward.

Guards Aliyah Matharu, JaMya Mingo-Young, and Xaria Wiggins combined for 25 points and only four turnovers. Look for the trio to earn more playing time against Jackson State on Thursday.
