Though it was a low scoring affair, the Bulldogs had their way with the Ragin’ Cajuns.

Jordan Danberry and Andra Espinoza-Hunter led the way with 12 points apiece. Danberry showed no signs of slowing down, continuing to show off a lethal midrange game. In addition to her 12 points, Danberry posted 10 boards, earning a Double-double. While Espinoza-Hunter is yet to find her groove from distance, she is taking advantage of open shots and creating opportunities for teammates.

Point guard Myah Taylor filled the stat line with eight points, six assists, and three steals. If able to maintain her all-round game and be a formidable weapon on both ends of the floor, the Bulldogs offense will be at its finest. Forwards Rickea Jackson and Chloe Bibby combined for 17 points.

While Jessika Carter was a factor in the paint, she must return to form and post more than seven points and eight boards. Carter, at 6-foot-5 has the talent and length to make more of an impact, as she is sure to increase her numbers going forward.

Now 9-2, the Bulldogs are back on track and look the part, as they will meet South Florida in Las Vegas for a Duel in the Desert Thursday.
