The Lady Raiders shooting in the game wasn’t spectacular, 40% from the field, 25% 3-pointers, 72% free throw; but their high-pressure defense allowed them extra offensive opportunities. The Lady Raiders for 25 turnovers, 14 of them steals. They picked up 27 points off turnovers and 13 fast break points.
