Lady Sabers 64 Virginia University Lynchburg 55


As winter rolled in on the town of Concord and the temperature began to drop, Mykayla Greene was setting the nets on fire in Lionel Newsom Gymnasium. She led the Lady Sabers to a 64 to 55 victory over Virginia University Lynchburg to end the 6 game skid. 



The game was a see-saw of defensive stops throughout the first half as neither team was able to find their groove on the offensive side of the ball. Amaya Scott led all scorers with 6 points at the half as they trailed 15 to 17. Mykayla Greene would take it from there as she dominated the Lady Dragons in every way in the second half, collecting 18 of her 20 points and ending the game with a double-double off of 10 boards. Greene was a mismatch from every spot on the floor. She collected 6 points from beyond the arc to go with 8 from the charity stripe and 6 from the paint, including an offensive rebound and put back. She also got her teammates involved with 4 assists and helped on defense with a steal and several key defensive stops. Her biggest impact on the game was back to back possessions late in the fourth quarter in which she drilled open looks from deep to ice the game.



Amaya Scott continued her aggressive style of play and voluminous shooting tactics as she followed Greene with 18 points and 8 rebounds. She produced the most memorable, and loudest, play of the game as well. A Lady Dragon drove to the left side of the basket and rose for a shot attempt, but unfortunately for her Scott was not amused and swatted her field goal attempt 10 feet onto the home bench, nearly deflating the basketball!

The Lady Sabers next contest will be Wednesday against the Sturt Sabers from Sturt, Australia.
