The Ladies prevailed over Elon 68-59 in a game they won going away thanks to seldom-used Rachel Camp who scored 29 points. With Vanessa Panousis still mired in a terrible slump and sitting most of this game, the slack was taken up by Camp. Sidney Cooke, Hannah Young and Megan McGarrity also came thru with double digit points.
For the life of me I don't understand Coach Wolff's manner of coaching at all. For example look at Camp's freshman synopsis from Hokie Sports:
Appeared in 32 games with 28 starts as a freshman... Earned All-ACC Academic Team Honors... Set a Virginia Tech single-game freshman scoring record with 33 points versus Western Carolina while also grabbing 11 rebounds and handing out six assists... Scored in double-digits 14 times, including seven games with 20 or more points... Averaged 11.4 points and 5.6 rebounds... Had first double-double with 12 points and 10 rebounds against Maryland Eastern Shore... Had 22 points at Providence and followed up with 18 versus Old Dominion, 21 against ETSU and 21 at Florida... Also had eight rebounds against the Gators... Tallied 16 points and 13 rebounds versus Longwood... Notched 29 points and 12 boards against NC Central... Posted 23 points and seven rebounds against Virginia... Recorded 12 points and eight boards at NC State... Had 14 points and eight rebounds versus Miami... Tallied eight points and 10 rebounds against No. 8 Louisville.
She averaged 28 minutes per game last year and this year she has had her playing time cut in half. With the team so mired in a dismal slump the 2nd half of the season, I just don't get why.
The Ladies go to Ohio University on Sunday for the second round at 2:00.
