No. 8 Lady Senators roll past Chattanooga State on the road
 January 20, 2013

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. – The eighth ranked Walters State Lady Senators steamrolled through another Tennessee Community College Athletic Association opponent Saturday, as they visited one of the tougher places in the league to win on the road and walked away with a 77-52 victory over Chattanooga State.

The Lady Senators did not have one of their crispest offensive performances of the year, but their defense forced 26 turnovers and they outrebounded the Lady Tigers, 57-29, in another easy victory.

In nine conference games, Walters State has yet to win by less than 22 points, as they improve to 16-1 overall and 9-0 in league play. The loss drops Chattanooga State to 8-5 overall and 5-4 in TCCAA action.

The Lady Senators put up impressive statistics in handing the Lady Tigers their worst loss of the season.

A pair of freshmen recorded double-doubles, as Donnesha Shuler tallied 14 points and 11 rebounds, while Jasmine McAllister added 13 points and 10 boards in the win.

Sophomore Caprisha Rogers had her best outing of the season, as she dished out 10 assists while adding eight points and hauling in eight rebounds. Tangela Crenshaw added eight rebounds and seven points, and Aisjah Roan totaled nine points in the win.

Walters State shot just 35.7 percent (30 of 84) from the floor in the contest, including only 3 of 18 (16.7 percent) from long range. They countered by converting the 26 Chattanooga State turnovers into 31 points in transition, and the bench held a 40-12 advantage in points over the Lady Tiger reserves.

Chattanooga State shot 40.8 percent (20 of 49) from the field, including just 2 of 12 from behind the 3-point line. Stevonna Scott paced the lady Tigers with 17 points, while Sierra Sales added 10 points and eight rebounds in the defeat.

The Lady Senators will be back in action Monday for a special holiday matinee home game against NJCAA Region XVII powerhouse Georgia Perimeter.

“Georgia Perimeter always presents a tough challenge for us, whether we play them on their home floor or if they come up here,” Lady Senators coach Dave Kragel said. “We look forward to playing against them on Monday. They present quite a challenge with their athleticism, and we have seen them play already this season a couple times. They are 9-8, but they have played one of the most difficult schedules in the country. Hopefully we can get a big crowd in here Monday to watch us play against a quality opponent.”

Tipoff with the Lady Jaguars Monday is set for 2 p.m.
