LAST TIME OUT
CoCo Moore scored a team-high 21 points and Tierny Austin recorded her first double-double of the season (15 points, 11 rebounds) but the Cougars couldn't overcome 13 three-pointers in a 96-71 loss at IPFW.
NEW CAREER HIGH
Redshirt sophomore Raven Warford set a new career high last Saturday with a 13-point performance off the bench at IPFW. Warford shot 5 of 8 from the field.
WENDT FOR THREE
Wendt went 5 for 5 from three-point range in the loss against Wyoming at the Air Force Classic. That was the best performance (min. 4 made) from behind the arc since Amy Tuetken went 4 for 4 against Northern Kentucky on Jan. 25, 1997.
SCOUTING THE BULLDOGS
The Bulldogs, 4-4, are playing their first game in 12 days. Drake freshman Lizzy Wendell broke through for her first double-double with 20 points and 11 rebounds in a 78-59 win over Idaho State.
