FORT MYERS, Fla. (December 17, 2020) – The Webber International University women’s basketball team wrapped up its second and final exhibition game of the 2020-21 season with a 91-55 defeat at NCAA Division-I Florida Gulf Coast University on Friday in Alico Arena.
FGCU, which finished the game with 16 made 3-pointers, made at least five 3-pointers in each of the first three quarters of the game, and already had 11 made 3-pointers by halftime.
The Warriors finished the final 2:17 of the first half on a 6-0 run as Graham hit two free throws and a jumper, followed by a layup by Jacob on the steal and assist by Kayla Burrows with only seven seconds left to make it a seven-point game at 23-16.
Jacob then opened up the second quarter with a jumper to make it only a five-point game at 23-18, and then a layup by Daisa Wandick on the assist by Franklin made it only a four-point margin at 26-22 two minutes into the quarter.
The Warriors will now get a week and a half off for Christmas break, and will not return to the court until Wednesday, December 30, when they take on Crooked Lake rival Warner University at 5:30 p.m. in Lake Wales, Florida. The Warriors are currently third in The Sun Conference standings at 3-1, and will look to improve upon that mark against the Royals, who Webber has swept during each of the last two seasons.
