With a standout block from Rickea Jackson to end the first half, the Bulldogs took things into their own hands throughout the third and fourth quarters.

Jackson led all scorers with 24 points, having shot 8-16 from the field, 8-10 from the line. Jessika Carter posted a Double double with 15 points and 11 boards, six of which were on the defensive end. Chloe Bibby and Myah Taylor combined for and additional 16 points.

A typical defensive outing, Vic Schaefer and company had their way when it mattered most. That said, look for the team to jump out of the gate in the first half going forward. A proven group that has shown ability to turn games into track meats, the Bulldogs should do so on Thursday in Knoxville.
