After a dreadful start (3/17 shooting in the opening stanza, full credit to the AC defense) the Trinity women upped their intensity and focus to get past Austin 67-54. The Tigers held a 14-4 advantage in steals; this combined with a 25-9 advantage at the stripe helped overcome a 4-15 night from beyond the arc. Elizabeth Balido came off the bench to lead all scorers with 22 points, adding 9 boards. Mollie Hughes had 20 and 7, and Micah Weaver had 16 from the bench. The 'Roos were lead by Kendall Heitmeier with 17 (3-7 from deep), Caitlyn Collins with 13 (3-4 from distance), and 12 points and 12 boards from the stalwart Bryce Frank.
Of concern for the Tigers is a possible injury to Monica Holguin, scoreless in her 10 minutes but making 5 steals in that time. After the last she was tripped up trying to go on the fast break, fell hard, and it took some time for her to come off the court, not to return. Trinity had two senior starters suffer career-ending injuries last season and could do without another to one of this year's leaders. Update: Holguin started today against Centenary, so it wasn't serious.
