ANDERSON, S.C. -- The game notes for Anderson University women’s basketball matchup with South Atlantic Conference opponent Newberry on Saturday have been released.
With their one-point setback to Wingate on Wednesday, the Trojans look to avoid a three-game losing streak when they welcome Newberry to the Abney Athletic Center. Overall, AU enters the weekend with a 6-2 record and a 2-2 mark in conference play.
Newberry (4-2, 2-2 SAC) was projected to win the SAC this season after coming off a 20-10 record in 2012-13. The Wolves placed two on the Preseason SAC First Team, as juniors Haylee Lepaio and Samantha Creed accounted for two of the six positions. Lepaio was also named a Preseason All-American by DII Bulletin prior to the start of the season.
This season, Lepaio is just one of three players in the league to average more than 17 points per game (17.5) and one of four players to average more than eight rebounds (8.5). On Nov. 19, Lepaio was named SAC Player of the Week as she averaged 19.5 points and 7.5 rebounds in Newberry’s wins over Morris and Mount Olive.
Tip-off from the Abney Center is slated for 2 p.m. Fans can listen to all the action on wrixfm.com.
