If Head Coach Beth Coil was asked what the difference between these two teams was the answer would be simple and to the point, rebounds. In Friday night’s 95-63 loss to Lees McRae College, Converse watched as the Bobcats dominated and out-rebounded them 57-29 in 40 minutes of play.
Lees-McRae had their game plan as they handed Converse their 5th loss of the season; that was to shut down the All-Stars big weapon in sophomore center Lindsey Parker. Parker has produced a double-double in every game this season until tonite only grabbing 10 rebounds and scoring 9 points. The bright spot of the night was junior guard Melissa Ballard who stepped up her play and scored a game-high 24 points along with 3 rebounds and 3 assists.
The All-Stars will travel to Rock Hill, SC to take on D-I Winthrop University before leaving for Christmas break.
