Shooting, it’s how to win at basketball 101. If I was any good at it, I might be on this court for a different reason. Syracuse women’s basketball didn’t do a great job of shooting against Florida State, and they lost 73-67. A close game in the first half with 10 different lead changes, the Seminoles found their stroke in the second half, the Orange didn’t. Coach Vonn Read and the players had a few thoughts about today’s scoring performance.
“The second and third quarter we shot in the 20s percentage wise. That’s where we had the chance to take control of the game, but they got up four at halftime and we were chasing them after that. We have to do a better job with that.” Acting Head Coach Vonn Read said of today’s game.
“Shooting is one of those things, there’s nothing that we don’t do. We’re in the gym, it’s just one of those things that happens in the game. In terms of shooting, no one wants to make it more than the girls on the floor. We put a lot of effort into wanting to score, so we’ll have to figure it out. These quick turnarounds are tough. In terms of minutes, early mornings, and school. We’re adjusting and we’re working hard towards it. I hope some of these girls get to see their rewards soon.” Naje Murray said.
Teisha Hyman did put up her first double-double of the season. The Sophomore guard had 10 points and grabbed 13 rebounds for a well-rounded performance. Hyman and the team will turn their attention to number 23 ranked Virginia Tech. The Orange will welcome the Hokies to the dome Thursday night at 7PM.
