The BJU Lady Bruins dominated the Toccoa Falls Eagles Tuesday night by a final score of 90-58.
In the first quarter, the teams battled back and forth with the Eagles taking an early lead. The Bruins erupted on a 17-2 run sparked by a suffocating full-court press, giving the Bruins a 31-17 lead at the end of the first quarter.
Kendra Jeffcott and Sha’Ron Brunson led the Bruins in the second quarter as they continued their domination. Thanks to a 46-9 run, BJU held a 62-28 lead going into the half.
“We had several players who had really good games,” Coach Mike LeViere said. “It took us a little bit to get in rhythm, but we did a lot of good things tonight. Our inside out game was working well, and we played good defense which fed the offense.”
In the third quarter, LeViere got excellent play off his bench, as Brunson scored 15 points and Sarah Thomsen contributed another 12 points off the bench. The Bruins controlled the second half easily, winning the game 90-58.
“I’m pretty happy overall,” LeViere said. “We had players build some confidence off of this game which will help us in future games. We had some really good things we can take away from this, and we need to continue to work hard and play good defense going forward.”
Hannah Tompkins and Brunson each recorded 15 points, and the Bruins forced 21 turnovers to spark the offense.
The Bruins will next take on North Greenville University on Saturday in Tigerville.
