The Rollins women’s basketball team opened the 2007-08 season in dominating fashion, defeating Warner Southern 79-30 at Warden Arena on Saturday afternoon. The Tars’ win marks their 14th consecutive home opener victory, improving their record to 1-0 on the season, while the Royals dropped to 1-4.
Senior guard Jennifer Musgrove scored 19 points, one shy of her career-high 20, and she was one rebound short of her seventh career double-double. She also led all players with five assists, and she was one of six Rollins players with two or more steals. Junior center Ines Teuma also scored in double digits, adding 10 points on 3-5 shooting from the field and 4-6 from the free throw line. All but one of Rollins’ 15 players scored at least one point, with the Tars’ bench accounting for 40 points.
Rose Charles led the Royals with 12 points, including a 6-6 performance at the free throw line. Warner Southern struggled as a whole, shooting 15.7 percent from the field, including 1-14 from three-point territory. The Royals also committed 29 turnovers, which led to 38 Rollins points.
Royals guard Ronke Allen scored the team’s only three-pointer to open the game, but Rollins responded with a 24-2 run over the next 6:10 minutes, including 13 points by Musgrove and six by junior guard Rachael Malatesta. The Tars continued their hot shooting through the end of the half, finishing with a 12-2 run over the last 4:37 of the opening period. Rollins shot a blistering 51.4 percent (19-37) in the first half.
The Tars cooled off in the second half, shooting 18.4 percent (7-38), but the team used the second period to give experience to many of its younger players. Even though Rollins did not fare as well in the second half, Warner Southern was even worse, shooting 6.9 percent (2-29). The Tars held their biggest lead when freshman guard Morgan Loughrey scored a fast break layup, pushing the score to 75-25 and the team’s lead to 50.
Rollins held a huge advantage on the boards, out-rebounding the opponents 58-37, including 26 offensive rebounds. Freshman forward Janelle DeVaul had an impressive debut, tallying seven boards in just 11 minutes. The Tars’ also featured a swarming defense, accounting for 17 steals, including five by freshman guard Jessica Pressley.
