(New Orleans) The Lady Bleu Devils are off to a hot start thanks to tough defense and efficient offensive play. In three games, Dillard has had victories of 56, five and 41 points, most recently an 87-46 win against Florida Memorial University at the Battlefield in Dent Hall. The 2015-16 Gulf Coast Athletic Conference Freshman of the Year Shaelynn Moore (SO/Houston, Texas) put on a show for Bleu Devil fans as she finished the home opener with a career-high 31 points on 12-of-16 shooting from the field and nailed four 3-pointers in the win, and she was one rebound away from a double-double.
Dillard used a 22-3 run in the second quarter to surge passed the Lions of Florida Memorial University who struggled to find the basket all night, shooting a dismal 29 percent from the field while the Lady Bleu Devils shot 44 percent from the field. Dillard outrebounded its opponent 51 to 41 and forced a whopping 30 turnovers while committing 18 themselves. Sophomore Alyssa Washington (SO/Austin, Texas) nailed two 3-pointers, grabbed six boards and finished the game with 12 points while point guard Shantrell Lumar (SR/Baton Rouge, La.) and sophomore transfer point guard Adriiana Jackson (SO/Houston, Texas) both chipped in with nine points and five assists apiece.
Junior transfer forward Alexia McDonald (JR/Petal, Miss.) also finished with nine points and also produced a game-high five steals in her debut game at the Battlefield in Dent Hall. As a team Dillard ranks tenth and eleventh in the NAIA in scoring margin and rebound margin respectively.
