No. 7 Lady Senators rout Motlow State 108-45
 February 9, 2013

MORRISTOWN, Tenn. – Less than two minutes into Friday’s home game against Motlow State, the seventh ranked Walters State Lady Senators left no doubt on the outcome.

The Lady Senators raced out to an 8-2 lead and used a pair of 17-0 runs in the first half to build a 39-point lead and they never let up in racing to a 108-45 victory over the Lady Bucks inside ‘Z’ Buda Gymnasium.

With the win, Walters State improves to 22-1 on the season and 14-0 in Tennessee Community College Athletic Association play. The loss drops Motlow State to 4-15 overall and 2-11 in TCCAA action.

The Lady Senators had six players reach double figures, led by Tangela Crenshaw with 20 points. Donnesha Shuler added 14 points, Aisjah Roan had 13, Monashia Bolduc and MiShannon Wilbanks tallied 11 apiece and Bre Hall had 10 in her return from a knee injury that sidelined her for three games.

Walters State only turned the ball over six times in the contest, and they had 30 assists on 41 made field goals. Gaby Gilmore led the team with nine assists and eight rebounds, as the Lady Senators also held a 50-28 advantage on the glass.

After racing to an 8-2 lead in the opening two minutes, the Lady Senators pushed the advantage to 26-4 midway through the first half behind Crenshaw and Roan combining for 20 points in the first 10 minutes.

Walters State used another 17-0 run to build the margin to 43-6 late in the half and took a 50-11 lead into halftime. The Lady Senators shot 48.7 percent (19 of 39) in the half compared to only 19.2 percent (5 of 26) for the Lady Bucks.

The second half began much like the first, with Walters State scoring the first 10 points of the frame before Motlow coach Aaron Holland could get a timeout. The break in the action did little to stop the Lady Senators, as they built the lead as high as 70 and hit the century mark with 3:02 left.

Walters State shot 54.7 percent (41 of 75) from the floor in the contest, including 6 of 16 from long range, and they made 20 of 28 from the free throw line.

The Lady Bucks struggled to a 30.9 percent (17 of 55) shooting night, including just 20 percent (5 of 25) from long distance. Kaley Rogers led Motlow State with 11 points and Chelsey Wiseman added 10 in the loss.

The Lady Senators will be back in action Saturday afternoon when they host Volunteer State (17-2, 11-2 TCCAA) at 2 p.m. inside ‘Z’ Buda Gymnasium.
