National Women's Basketball 3-Point Challenge
BREVARD, N.C. – The Brevard women's basketball team returns to the court on Wednesday when it hosts Piedmont College to Boshamer Gym for a 6 p.m. contest.
The Tornados are looking to return to the win column after suffering setbacks in their last three contests, including losses to Covenant (86-78) and Berea (78-46) last weekend.
The trio of Annalee Bollinger (15.4 ppg), Ty'She Washington (8.5) and Destiny Williams (8.0) highlights a Brevard offense that is averaging 62 points per contest in its first 18 games. Bollinger has knocked down 87-of-260 (33.5%) from the floor and 45-of-144 (31.3%) from 3-point range.
Whitney DeMoss leads the way for Brevard on the glass, hauling in 127 rebounds (87 defensive), while Williams has forced 36 steals and 10 blocks on defense.
Piedmont (19-4) had its seven-game winning streak snapped on Saturday with a 71-58 loss to Covenant. Among those seven victories was a 76-59 victory over Brevard, which came on Jan. 23 in DeMorest, Ga. The Lions come into the contest with the most wins in the USA South West Standings, however they currently sit third in the division behind Maryville and Berea.
It will also serve as the Coaches vs. Cancer game for the Tornados with all Brevard students receiving a free t-shirt at the gate. In addition, fans can make pledges for each 3-pointer made to the American Cancer Society.
