National Women’s Team at the game venue
The 2016 finals runner up, Dream, took on the new league sensation, the Islanders on May 7th at the Clifton Hunter High School Gym.
This year’s Islanders team has definitely 10X’ed their performance compared to last year, with additions such as Scimone Campbell, Jennifer Cottarelo-Choice, Krystle Barrett, Renee Thompson and Christsania Parker. The game was fast and furious, seeing lead change after lead change and big play after big play. But in the 4th quarter, Eve Lunn turned on the heat and made the Islanders pay for leaving her open on the 3-point line, hitting four huge baskets from behind the arc and putting the Dream out front.
Final Score Dream – 49
Islanders – 47
Eve Lunn – 18 pts; 9 rebs, 1st
Carmen Picante – 9 pts; 5 as; 5 sts
Theresa Hamel – 8 pts; 11 rebs;
Jennifer Cotarelo-Choice – 14 pts; 5 rebs; 6 sts
Krystle Barrett – 11 pts; 10 rebs; 3 sts
Scimone Campbell – 10 pts; 21 rebs; 4 as; 8 sts
