The Wolves (6-13, 3-2 GSC East) are coming off back-to-back league wins over Valdosta State and West Florida, respectively, where they’ve received solid contributions from a cast of players, most notably junior guard Shunice Hardy.
Hardy posted a career-high 16 points in each of the wins, the latest being a 64-50 road victory over UWF in Pensacola, Fla., on Thursday night.
Along with Hardy’s promising showing, freshman forward Breonna Mosley has been coming into her own during the past two outings, scoring six points with eight rebounds in 20 minutes of action off the bench in UWG’s 54-48 home win over VSU on Saturday. She followed that up with a career night of 12 points and 14 boards against the Argonauts on Thursday in 21 minutes of action.
Junior center Monica Williams recorded her 11th straight double-double in the win over UWF, scoring 14 points with 12 rebounds. It marked her 14th double-double of the season.
The Wolves will face an Eagle ball club that has struggled to a 3-16 standing thus far this year, including a 61-52 home setback to West Florida this past Sunday. Junior guard Ashley Franklin led three Lambuth scorers in double figures with 14 points, six assists and four steals.
UWG men: The Wolves (10-8, 2-3 GSC East) will once again have to bounce back from a tough GSC East road setback, this one coming in the form of a 77-61 decision against a red-hot West Florida ball club on Thursday night that shot 55 percent for the night from the field, including 65 percent in the second half led by forwards Marquis Mathis and Mike Whisman. The duo combined for 46 points and 17 rebounds on 23-of-32 shooting.
The Wolves, meanwhile, struggled offensively, connecting on just 3-of-21 attempts from beyond the arc.
Lambuth (9-10) comes to The Coliseum for tonight’s 7:30 contest fresh off a record-setting performance in a 148-67 rout of Temple Baptist College on Tuesday night. The Eagles finished with some ridiculous offensive statistics, shooting 56-for-85 (66 percent) from the field and 10-of-21 (48 percent) from the 3-point line.
Teshawn Byron led seven Eagle scorers in double figures with 30 points.
