From VUSports.Com WBB -
At the Florida International University Thanksgiving Tournament, Nova took control of a close sloppy game in the last seven minutes of the first half, taking a 40-26 lead at the half. The three point shooting was still suspect early on, only 2-10 at the break. Taylor Holeman led the late charge in the half, scoring 11 points on 5-5 shooting.
The second half started with Nova raining threes at the start, hitting 6 of their first seven, outscoring Montana by 23-4 to blow open the game at 63-30 at the 14 minute mark and coasted the rest of the way. With Emily Leer and Kavunaa Edwards both getting into foul trouble, Holeman had a sparkling game shooting 8-8 for a career high 17 points. Everyone got more than a few minutes of playing time in this one. Jessica Wamala got lots of radio air time as the announcers were gushing over her Rhodes Scholar designation and she then knocked down a three pointer to put an exclamation point on the conversation.
Nova shot 52% for the game, 64% in the second stanza, including 7-11 on threes.
Nova will attempt to get to 7-0 against the tournament host Florida International on Sunday at 3 p.m. FIU won the opening game over Valparaiso in a game between two winless teams. However, FIU features Jerica Coley, the eighth leading scorer in the nation who netted 30 points in that game. As far as I can tell, I believe only one other Nova team started out 7-0 or better, the 1979-80 team that I think won their first 14.
Keep on Rollin' Nova!
