If Hollywood made a movie about this game it would be called “How Asia Got Her Groove Back.” Yes, she reverted back to the scoring machine that we know and love, but she didn’t score her first points of the game until the last few minutes of the first quarter. However, prior to that she displayed a totally different attitude than we’d seen the last couple of games. Gone was that slightly sullen and frustrated player only to be replaced by a person who was active on defense, crashing the boards, and looking to get her teammates involved on offense. She was relaxed and in the flow of the game so when that first shot finally fell she was off to the races. She scored a game-high 26 points in 25 minutes of play.

The first two minutes of the game started with Jazmine Jones getting steals scoring the first six points. Coach Walz said, “Jaz set the tempo for the game right off the bat.” He said that he was proud of the whole team. On Bionca Dunham he said, “She finished. She did a great job. She has to keep challenging herself defensively but overall she was really good.” Bionca finished the game with 16 points and 5 rebounds.
