She racked up another double double with 10 rebounds and 22 points. Hammon and Young are a great pair for their team.
Shameka Christon and Jia Perkins are two players that change games but aren’t noticed all the time. Christon last night had 17 points and shot 4-5 form beyond the arc last night. Those 3s were huge team boosters throughout the game. Jia Perkins shot 2-5 last night but her 3s were just as important to to teams overall win. She scored 12 points in this game.
