UTC Women Get Off To Fast Start; Win At Liberty, 71-54

Monday, November 11, 2019

The UTC women got off to a fast start, shooting 70 percent in the first quarter, and defeated Liberty on the road, 71-54, on Monday night.

Abbey Cornelius had 15 points in that big first quarter in which UTC led 22-10.

Cornelius, a sophomore from Knoxville, finished with 21 points and seven rebounds. Eboni Williams, getting back to her SoCon Freshman of the Year form, had 16 points and seven boards. 

Chattanooga had a halftime lead at 33-22. The Mocs kept the lead at double digits through most of the rest of the night as the Flames could not find the hoop - especially from down close. UTC wound up shooting 46 percent and Liberty 39 percent.

The Flames got it to 57-48 with four minutes remaining, but could get no closer. A Williams drive to the basket and a layup that went up high and in was a key bucket. 

Coach Katie Burrows, coming off a not-close home loss to speedy Hampton, was ecstatic. She told announcer Larry Ward, "I'm so pumped right now."

She said, "It's the best team defense we've played so far. They were talking to each other. And we were knocking down shots."

Senior Lakelyn Bouldin had 13 points and five rebounds along with seven assists. Bria Dial also tallied 13 to go with seven boards. Nakeia Burks had five points and two rebounds.

Freshman Dena Jarrells played 11 minutes and scored three points.
