Rifles Outplay All-Stars
Olivia Freda scored in the first 17 seconds of the game and the All-Stars led for the first 35 seconds, but that would be the last lead for the All-Stars. In the first half, the All-Stars had 20 turnovers in which the Lady Rifles were able to capitalize on by scoring 20 points. Five of the eight players for the All-Stars were scoreless in the first half. They went 6 for 23, while the Rifles went 21 for 41. USCS scored nine second chance points, while the All- Stars only scored 2. USCS scored four points off fast break while the All-Stars had no fast break points. The All-Stars poor shooting night led to only 26.1% from the field for the first half. USCS determined to break a four game losing streak shot 47.2% for the game.
The second half proved to be just as dismal for the All-Stars as the first half. Continued turnovers(15) and poor shooting percentage(37%) ended any hopes for the All-Stars staging a second half comeback.
Olivia Freda led the All-Stars with 12 points and two steals. Lauren Mueller had her fourth double-double with 10 points and 11 rebounds.
Vania Redd led both teams with 17 points.
The All-Stars will return home to host cross-state rival Coker College on Saturday, January 25th at 2:00pm.
