“Huge road win,” Tigers head coach Kayla Wiley said. “All around another good team win for our lady Tigers.”

“Ali played very aggressive and always working hard down low,” Wiley said.
Hamilton might be use to working hard but she definitely had help in this victory. Sophomore Mariah Buckley scored added 15 points, six assists, eight rebounds and three steals to the stat sheet for the Tigers.
“Mariah really stepped up for us big tonight, controlling the floor, and caused some problems for the other team with her speed, both on defense and offence,” Wiley said.

On the glass, Cammy oiler and Kaylee Stone made their presence known. Oiler finished with 11 rebounds and Stone finished with 10, although she battled foul trouble throughout the game.
