7:00 in Millett. Steve Baker and Carol Smith cover the game on ESPN3. Loyola defeated Miami in Chicago last year by 17. So far this season they are 2-4. On the road they are 1-2, winning at Western Michigan and losing at Milwaukee and Eastern Illinois. At home they are also 1-2, Losing to Virginia and Miami F and beating St. Francis. They are led in scoring by 3 girls between 10 and 13ppg. They are 5-7 JR Maya Chandler, 6-1 SR Sophia Nolan, and 5-10 SR Anna Brown.
Miami is 1-4 and led by 5-10 Soph Maddie Cluse at 19ppg ( 2nd in the MAC) and 5-7 Soph Ivy Wolf at almost 16ppg. Wolf is shooting 94% from the line. Peyton Scott played 15 minutes at Evansville and scored her first 4 points of the year. She is on a record recovery pace following ACL surgery in Mid March. She is not jumping as high or starting as fast, but she has already hit the floor several times and looks just fine. She has been increasing her minutes each game, so look for maybe playing 15-20 minutes.
Coach Hendrix, please stop pressing and running and slow the pace down. Get them to stop reaching in and trying to block every shot. Stay out of foul trouble, slow the pace, and keep your best players on the floor and win a couple of games this week.
