Cappie Pondexter once again powered her team to a victory! Pondexter scored 26 points and it was great to see. She scored from the beginning to the end and it proved to work for the Liberty. She also had 2 steals and 6 rebounds. Pondexter is back in action and so is the Liberty. Leilani Mitchell started off the game with a couple huge plays one being a huge 3. She was 4-5 for the night which is spectacular! She scored 18 points and had 4 assists.
Kia Vaughn, Plenette Pierson, and Essence Carson also had good games. Vaughn was the leading rebounding with 8 and she scored 15 points for the night. Pierson had 10 points and Carson had 6 points for the night. The Liberty are winning games with a short roster, which I don’t think many people recognize. The Liberty have been playing short in the last few games. Kelley Cain, Kelly Miller, and Alex Montgomery were all on the bench due to the Coach’s Decision. The Liberty are still winning and they are short a few player, that shows skill!
The Dream tried to make a comeback but the Liberty let that happen. Angel McCoughtry once again scored her team high with 21 points. She led both teams in rebounds with 14 and steals with 7. Sancho Lyttle scored 12 points and grabbed 9 rebounds. 8 of Lyttle’s rebounds were on the defensive end. Aneika Henry had 14 points. She shot 6-7 last night from the field. She also had 6 rebounds in the game. The Dream haven’t played well and they didn’t in this game. Even though they tried to pull a comeback, they were still defeated by the Liberty.
