Lady Rattlers Live Blog: The Double Header

Refresh page constantly as updates will be throughout the game.

4:26 PM 

8:27 left in the first half and the lady Rattlers clearly have things under control. Devastating defense has BCU in fits trying to find scoring opportunities.

4:33 PM

Tamecka McKelton just took an ill advised mid-range jumper in transition, but it went it so “Alls well that ends well.”  There no such thing as a bad shot that goes in.

4:39 PM

Although Myeshia Simms is the smallest player on the court, there is no doubt who the floor general is for the Rattlers. Lil Bit shall be her name throughout the rest of this blog.

4:43 PM

I guess that was right on cue because lil bit just came up with a beautiful steal on a one on one fast break.

4:44 PM

Halftime is here and FAMU leads at the half 32-18. 

5:00 PM

Rattlers open up the second half with a jumper from Mckelton but BCU answers back with a three.

5:04 PM

Back to back putbacks by Quiana Donald and Antonia Bennett put the Rattlers up by 12.

5:09 PM

Donald just stepped up and took a vicious charge. Ouch!!! Way to sacrifice for the team (couldn’t have been me). 

FAMU 41- BCU 28

5:13 PM

Nicole Collins just pushed a sweet pass into Donald for the score. It was almost like watching Steve Nash.

5:14 PM

BCU is starting to double the ball handler as soon as they pass mid court. Lil Bit just lost the ball but hustled all the way back to force the jump ball.

5:17 PM 

The 2-3 zone that FAMU is playing is giving Bethune fits. They can’t buy a bucket right now.

FAMU 45- BCU 28 11:08 Left to play.

5:21 PM

Great defense from the Rattlers all game long. They force a jump ball, and regain possession. Two free throws from McKelton  puts FAMU up 49 to 30.

5:38 PM

Time for a little R&R for some of the starters as the game looks all but over with FAMU up by 19. 

62-43 4:44 Left to play.

5:48 PM

BCU putting on the full court press. FAMU counters with bringing back all 5 starters. Talk about grade A coaching strategy. 

5:51 PM 

Quietly, BCU has cut the lead to 13. With under a minute to play I think they waited a little too long.

5:54 PM

BALL GAME!!!! FAMU wins 68- 56.
