Laurinburg, NC- The St. Andrews Women's basketball team struggled with their shooting Wednesday night as they fell to nearby rival UNC-Pembroke 61-28 at Harris Court.

The Lady Knights (1-3) actually made the first basket of the game as senior forward Kimayah Fulcher made a field goal to give the Knights an early advantage. However, SAU just seemed to go completely cold from the field as they also turned the ball over on their next few possessions and could only muster one more made shot the rest of the half and trailed at halftime 32-8.

In the second half, both teams continued to struggle shooting as they only combined for 49 points in half #2 as SAU was outscored 29-20 by the Braves. Even though Pembroke (1-2) only shot 38% for the game, they were 46% on three-pointers as they went 6 of 13 from behind the arc which helped the Braves stretch their lead in the second half.

The only players that seemed to be shooting very well tonight were UNCP's Kamille Horne and Courtney Bolton as they both caught fire in the second half. Horne made 3 of 4 three-pointers including her last three in the final 10 minutes of regulation as she ended up with 9 points for the game while Bolton led UNCP with 12 points as she was perfect from the field going 4 for 4.

Leading the Lady Knights was Fulcher with 7 points while junior forward Jazmyne Harvey had 7 rebounds. Freshman guard Jamisha Lee was the workhorse for SAU tonight as she played the most minutes while having 3 points, 6 rebounds, and 2 steals and also helped force many of UNCP's turnovers.

St. Andrews is back in action this Saturday as they travel to Decatur, GA to play Agnes Scott College in another non-conference bout. Tip is set for 2 PM.
