Messiah vs Tufts--next weekend
« on: March 02, 2019, 08:01:56 pm »
Just thought I'd give a shoutout to the Messiah women's basketball team, who won both of their NCAA games this weekend. They advance to play Tufts in Roanoke. Both teams are in the top 7 on D3 hoops. Tufts, 27-2, has won their last 8. Messiah dropped the opening game to York College and has run the table since then. I don't know anything else about the Jumbos. Messiah is a senior-heavy team led by 6'2" center Aleisha Rohrer: https://gomessiah.com/roster.aspx?rp_id=6624, who averages 15 Pts, 13 RBs, and has blocked 55 shots. Diminutive guard Maci Thornton scores 18 ppg, with 38% from behind the arc and 80% from the line. FT shooting is probably their greatest strength. If they have the lead late, they keep it.
