Super game at Sharp to start the year

Northwestern State was in town to face Houston Baptist and although the Huskies came up short, I continue to see progression and watching both teams has me even more excited about the Southland Conference Tournament in March. In the early going it was a shootout between HBU's TJ Jefferson and Northwestern State's Janelle Perez as both were unconscious dropping three's from everywhere. Former Houston area stars Jefferson (North Shore), Anna Strickland (The Woodlands) and Rachel Arthur (Atascocita) accounted for the first 10 Huskies points but the big news was Monet Neal coming off the bench to score 15 in the first half and finish with 28 plus she added 18 rebounds

 Keisha Lee scored on a variety of ways in the second half as she scored all 11 of her points but the long ball shooting from Chelsea Lee (5) and Perez (4) just helped push the Lady Demons over the top. Several local high school stars were in attendance including the Schenck sisters, Mikayla and Madison from SATCH, Marissa Bailey (Westbury Christian) Alexis Johnson (Kincaid) and Haley Johnson (George Ranch) as well as Northwestern State signee Brynae Thompson ( Cy Fair). Even though the Huskies came up short, they're playing some exciting ball and parents and players, I keep stressing you need to check out college action but what do I know :)
