She followed that with a 21-point performance at UNCG two days later. She was 8-of-14 (57.1%) with one triple and was 4-of-6 from the free throw line. She had four rebounds, five assists and four steals.

 

Gilbert, shooting 46.3 percent, leads the Mocs with 13.9 points per game, seventh in the SoCon, and is second on the team with 5.6 rebounds per game. She has 57 assists, 23 blocked shots and 24 steals.
