Syracuse Women’s Basketball finally snaps the losing streak

The streak has been snapped. The Syracuse Orange women’s basketball team snapped their six-game losing streak with a win over the Pittsburgh Panthers 80-72. It was a hard-fought game, but the orange led virtually the entire time. Cuse improves to 9-10 overall with the 2-7 record and ACC play with that win. Coach Vonn Read the team were really impressed with today’s performance and spoke about how it takes a balanced offensive attack to win games.

“We had a really balanced scoring attack and that was what I was pleased about. We had five players and double figures that’s what we were doing when we were winning games, we had five players in double figures. Chrislyn played a very good game, she had 17 points and eight assists, so she was doing it on both sides. Naje hit some really crucial shots, especially in the second half when they were making that run. She stepped right in there and knocked them down, and that kind of knocked their runs off. I was really proud of our whole team. I thought we had a team balanced effort with 21 assists, now that’s something that we’re looking for.” Coach Vonn Read said after the game.

“Every time all five of us score in double digits we win. We win when all five of us are double digits, the five starters. Every game I haven’t got my double digits, we haven’t won. That’s not even about scoring, that’s about what we need to win.” Naje Murray said.

Well, it must feel good to put that losing streak in the rearview mirror and on National Girls and Women in Sports day no less. Syracuse will look to start a new streak, a winning streak, as soon as possible. Their first chance to do so will come down in Miami as the Orange will take on the hurricanes Thursday night at 7 PM.
