“Linze Cole had a great game,” said Marshall. “She does the things that don’t always show up in the stats. She helps stabilize the offense, she plays defense, she goes to the boards and she finds the open shooter. However, against Orange Glen she was the open shooter, especially from three-point range.”
Cole hit four three-point shots for her 12 points.
Conroy (2), Flores (2), Balcom (1), and Owens (4) also scored in the win.
