Crocker scores 15 in 65-43 loss to Seahawks

The Memorial Sea-Hawks (3-3) got out of the gates quickly and didn't look back, defeating the Dalhousie Tigers (0-6) by a final score of 65-43.

The Sea-Hawks were able to jump out to an early lead, creating a 9-point lead at the end of the first frame. The game would turn on its head in the 2nd quarter, the stingy Sea-Hawks defence limited the Tigers to just 6 points, and the home team would take a 28-point lead into the second half, 45-17.

Finding themselves in a 28-point hole, the Tigers did their best to inch back into the game. However, the visiting Tigers couldn't make up the deficit in the final two quarters despite outscoring the Sea-Hawks in both frames, eventually falling by 22 points.

Alana Short once again led the Sea-Hawks in points with 18 on 4/13 shooting from the field and 2/8 from 3-pt range. Alyssa Jenkins once again brought crucial production from the bench, scoring 10 points on efficient 3/4 shooting from the field, good enough to be awarded the Subway AUS Player of the Game. Both Hannah Green and Gabrielle Roche were tough to handle in the paint, Green finished with a game-high 12 rebounds while Roche reached double digits with 10. Point guard Inés Salat Margarit was active on the defensive side of the ball, ending the weekend with a game-high 4 steals.

Kelsey Crocker led the way for the Tigers, scoring a team-high 15 points to go along with 5 rebounds. Off the bench Katie Wuotila impressed for the visitors, recording 6 points in just 13 minutes of play. Anna Parsons struggled to score (4 pts) unlike yesterday, however, she contributed a team-high 9 rebounds to the Tigers cause and was great on defence (3 steals).

The Seahawks hit the road next weekend, battling STFX on Saturday and Sunday. The Tigers host Acadia on Friday in their lone game of the weekend.
