Miners Handle Pesky Tulsa

The Miners got off to a much better start tonight than they did on Sunday and put away what turned out to be a very good Tulsa squad, 67-56.

It took a little while, and trust me it was not for lack of effort but the Miners finally pulled away near the end of the game and have now moved to 14-2 on the season and a first place 3-0 record in C-USA.

The one thing that has stood out to me all year about these Miners, is the depth of the bench.

Tonight, nine Miners tallied at least eleven minutes of playing time and if not for Gloria Brown getting into early foul trouble, there would have been 10.

In no way do I feel I am wrong by saying that this alone could be the key to a C-USA Championship. The constant substitutions by Coach Adams, have to devastating to whoever they face. If someone doesn’t have it one night, there is always somebody stepping up that does.

Tonight, the person to step was Anete Steinberga, who had 10 points, 5 rebounds 2 assists and a steal off the bench in only 16 minutes.

Not to be outdone, Kayla Thornton lead the way for the Miners with 17 points and 8 rebounds.

Tulsa was paced by Chanice Scott with 14 points and Loren McDaniel chipped in with a game high 13 rebounds.

Next, the Miners will face the Green Wave of Tulane this Sunday at 1:00pm in New Orleans and something tells me the result is not going to be like last year.
