The Fever played great in this game! There were so many stand out players. Briann January led her team scoring 20 points. Many of her points were quick jumpers and drives through the lane. She ran over Kara Lawson the entire game. She had no defensive competition so she figured she’d light up the scoreboard. She hit 4 big 3s in this game which helped raise her teams lead. Katie Douglas was 1 beyond the arc shot away from tying January. She did a lot of shooting and did a lot of scoring to help out her team.
Jeanette Pohlen had a great shooting game. She had 12 points in this game and they were all from behind the arc. She, too, shot 4 of 5 from the arc. She played only 12 minutes but she did a huge amount of scoring. Tamika Catchings had another good game as well. She scored 13 points but she led her team with 10 rebounds and 8 assists. I’m sure the entire audience was praying for a triple-double from her. Shavonte Zellous scored 13 points and grabbed 6 rebounds. Erin Phillips scored 14 points, grabbed 4 rebounds, and dished 4 assists.
The Sun played terrible! Even the “great” Tina Charles was off tonight. As a whole, many players scored but it wasn’t enough to beat the fever. The leading scorer was Mistie Mims and she only scored 11 points. Charles only grabbed 8 rebounds in this game which is less than her average. The Sun needed to do so much more and it just didn’t happen in this game.
