Both of these teams played a phenomenal game, but one team has t o win and that was the Sun. The Sun did a great job in the fourth quarter by shutting up the home crowd and playing basketball. The Liberty lost their composure and couldn’t finish the job. Allison Hightower was great in this victory. When her team needed her, she came out and brought a force the Liberty couldn’t handle. When the ball left Hightower’s hands, you could almost guarantee it was going in. She scored a total of 13 points, a majority of them being in the final two quarters.
Tina Charles played her usual game by scoring 19 points and grabbing 13 rebounds. She wasn’t spectacular on offense but her defense was superb. Her defense in the 2nd half was better than that of the 1st which is why the Sun were victorious. Danielle McCray was also another player that exploded in the final quarters lifting the Sun to their win.
Cappie Pondexter posted a good threat to the Sun in this game. She scored 19 points and dished 2 assists. Plenette Pierson was a great athlete in this game she racked up her first double double of the season with 15 points and 10 rebounds. She hit a big 3 that started the Liberty momentum that was later shut down after the half. The Liberty will win the next game if they can close towards the end.
