DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Coming off a nine-day break from the court for finals, the Lady Wildcats (2-5) are back in the race and looking to snap a four-game losing with Tuesday evening’s matchup against Edward Waters (4-4) at historic Richard V. Moore Gymnasium.

Notes on the Lady Wildcats

Bethune-Cookman has shown some great potential and highs this season, but have had struggles with digging out of early-allowed deficits, making numerous comebacks on matching or outscoring opponents after halftime. The key ultimately for victory is to avoid separation early in the game. 

Upstart Chastity René Taylor has led the team in the early going, scoring in double figures in five of her seven games as a Lady Wildcat. She carries a team-high 14 PPG average, having hit 18 three-pointers, and leads the team also with 17 steals.

Amanda Hairston also has proven to be a force in the first third of the season, putting up 12.4 points of her own per game, while also leading the team with 8.3 rebounds per game. Defensively, she will prove to be tough for the Edward Waters Tigers, having posted 14 blocks and 12 steals so far this season.

Notes on the Edward Waters Tigers

At 4-4, the Tigers will provide a solid opponent for the Lady Wildcats to work back into the flow, featuring a pair of familiar faces. Former Bethune-Cookman Assistant Coach Charmaine Wilson heads the Tigers in her second year, after finishing 10-22 in her inaugural season. Joining her is departed B-CU guard-turned-forward Amber Antoine.

Antoine is a solid leader for EWC on defense and on the glass, ranking third in NAIA Division I with 12.3 rebounds per game and fourth in steals per game (3.9). She is third among four Tigers averaging in double figures with 12.9 PPG.

Tiffany Tolbert leads the EWC scorers, putting up 16.6 points per game, aided by her 24th-ranked (Divisionally) 2.4 three-pointers per game. Center Daphne Walker joins her as a notable scorer, averaging 16 points, while also grabbing 8.4 rebounds.
