WBB Game 14: ODU (11-2, 1-0) @ UAB (8-5, 0-1)
This Saturday the Uniiversity of Alabama Bimingham will host the ODU Monarchs in game two of their road trip. The UAB Blazers are coached by Randy Norton, now entering his seventh season at the helm. ODU's all time record against UAB is 13-5. But we haven't won on the road against them since Jan 26, 1989 So...not in the last two decades.

This season the Blazers are 8-5 (6-2 at home) and 0-1 in the conference. RPI wise they are 148 with a SOS of 126.

Blazers Starting Five

32 Childress, Rachael G 5'10" Sr 17.9 ppg, 2.5 rpg, 2.2 apg, 43.0 FG%, 45.7 3P%, 89.5 FT%, 33.3 mpg
13 Thomas, Katelynn F 6'0" Sr 13.0 ppg, 4.6 rpg, , 0.4 apg, 65.3 FG%, 0.00 3P%, 44.1 FT%, 18.1 mpg
12 Magee, Trista G 6'1" RdSr 10.1 ppg, 3.7 rpg, 2.5 apg, 39.8 FG%, 36.2 3P%, 80.0 FT%, 30.3 mpg
00 Barnes, Miyah G 5'5" Sr 13.1 ppg, 3.0 rpg, 4.7 apg, 45.2 FG%, 47.9 3P%, 91.5 FT%, 33.2 mpg
03 Vendrell, Angela G 6'2" Sr 5.2 ppg, 8.5 rpg, 4.4 apg, 41.7 FG%, 50.0 3P%, 82.4 FT%, 25.2 mpg
Top Bench
55 Weathersby, Zakyia F 6'3" Jr 8.1 ppg, 4.7 rpg, 0.4 apg, 63.0 FG%, 0.00 3P%, 65.6 FT%, 12.4 mpg
01 Whitley, Margaret G 5'8" So 5.3 ppg, 05. rpg, 0.6 apg, 47.6 FG%, 41.2 3P%, 83.3 FT%, 13.4 mpg

Oddly enough, I couldn't find Zakyia Weathersby's height listed on the UAB website. So I went to her junior college, Jones College and she is listed as 6'3". Is that reliable? Probably not. But most coaches tend to exaggerate players height anyway.

UAB has the number one scoring offense in Con USA. Childress average of 17.9 ppg leads the conference. They are the league's best three point shooting team, 41.1 %. (Ranks 4th in the nation) And their assist of 18.08 leads the conference. (Tied for 18th in the nation) They are an offensive minded team. And they have the stats to back it up.

So they spread out the ball. They sub players in and out a lot. They have good shot selection on the outside and two players shooting over 60 (!) from the floor down low. Don't get me wrong, they can play defense. But they are really good on offense.

Inside the Stats.
.................UAB....ODU
PPG..........79.2......66.4.
OPPG........71.3......51.5
FG%..........46.8......40.8
OFG%.......39.7......33.5
3P%.........,,41.1....33.3
3PMG........9.5........7.1
O3P%.......31.7.......22.4
FT%..........73.6......64.2
FTMG.......15.0.......11.2
RPG..........37.9......41.8
ORPG.......37.8......35.8
APG..........18.1.....11.9
TPG..........13.9.....15.5
SPG...........4.9......9.6
BPG...........3.8......4.8
AST / TO ratio:
UAB: 1.3, 0.8

Why is this game going to be so much fun? UAB brings the offense. ODU brings the defense. ODU has allowed an average of 51.5 points per game. That ranks 7th in the nation. How can you not get excited about this game!!!

Aview love your scouting write ups. Good test for the Lady Monarchs. While UAB has only beat one team (Auburn) with a winning record, they have scorers, four players average double digit. In their house will be a tough test.

Wow UAB has us doubled up at the half 16-32. Not looking great.

UAB is killing it from 3-Point range, not so much for us.

I give the Monarchs some credit. At the 3:48 mark in the 3rd quarter, they were down by 26 points. With 43 seconds left in regulation, they brought the lead down to 9 points. (And Wayne had fouled out at the 6:43 mark--she does a lot on both ends for our team) In the end, just too big a hole to dig out of.... but they did go down swinging.

Next game at home against Charlotte in one week.

ODU isn't strong enough on the offensive boards to survive cold shootings nights. They are going to look amazing when the shots fall, and no so great on days like yesterday.

Anyone know what’s up with Blagmon? Coach said on her weekly show today that she’s not at liberty to discuss why she hasn’t been playing but she’s not being disciplined and she’s a great student. She did say she hopes she’s back with the team soon.
