WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.- In the first game of a Palm Beach Atlantic University and University of Tampa hoops double-header the Lady Spartans took down the Lady Fish 60-45 as the Fish could never quite get rolling. Trailing 36-20 at the half, the Fish did manage to outscore the Spartans after intermission by a tally of 25-24.
Jordan Kong led the Sailfish efforts with 12 points off the bench although the young shooting guard struggled to find her shot as she connected on just 2-of-11 attempts from beyond the arc. Chanell Byrd posted a solid performance with nine points, seven rebounds, five assists, and four blocks.
The Lady Spartans were led by their strong interior play as they matched up very well against PBA in their second effort of the season after taking on the Fish just a week ago. Tiara Cook led all scorers with 21 points and 11 rebounds while Kym Taylor tallied final totals of 16 points and six rebounds.
PBA will take the next week off before hitting the court on Saturday, December 13th for a road match up with Lynn University. Tip-off is slated for 2 pm.
