The ladies of Texas A&M in Kingsville were locked in a tight match with the Greyhounds. Then Kassandra Harris broke their hearts.
It appeared at the end of the first quarter that the Greyhounds (8-11; LSC 3-6) were going to have their work cut out for them. The score was tied at 19 a piece and the Javelinas (5-14; LSC 0-9) had just capped off a 10 to 4 run.
It appeared Eastern’s head Coach Josh Prock had seen enough of the Javelinas’ scoring. Prock began to press the Javelinas’ offense, which ENMU exploded to end the half on an 18 to 3 run. The run was started off by a Jordyn Cooper’s three-point basket and finished off with Sarah Stinnett hitting another ENMU triple.
The Greyhounds went into half holding a 37-24 lead at intermission. Eastern then opened the second half with two quick Johna McClelland buckets. The Javelinas attempted to make a comeback. Texas A&M in Kingsville opened up an 11-3 run.
The Greyhounds were able to counter and the rest is history. With Harris leading the charge, the Hounds answered with a 14-2 run to end the third quarter. Harris scored eight points during this run.
The Hounds stuck with the press defense until the fourth quarter. The starters were able to sit out with five minutes left in the game and watch as their team coasted to an easy win.
The Hounds will begin their three game conference road trip on February 6, 2016 at Angelo State.
