2011-12 a-state women’s basketball MORRILL ON A ROLL: Arkansas State freshman forward Jane Morrill has been on a roll as of late, scoring in double-figures in three of the Red Wolves five games from Jan. 5-19. Over those five games, all against Sun Belt Conference competition, Morrill scored a total of 52 points, for an average of 10.4 points per game. She also notched the first double-digit rebound game of her career during the span, pulling down 10 boards against FAU Jan. 8. During the five-game stretch, she has hit 20-of-32 (.625) shots from the field, 3-of-4 (.740) from beyond the three-point arc and 9-of-13 (.692) from the line. She has also averaged a blocked shot and just under five rebounds per game. STREAK SNAPPED: With their 62-61 victory over FIU Jan. 5 in Miami, the Red Wolves snapped a three-game losing streak to the Golden Panthers dating back to the 2007-08 season. The win was just the second victory for the Red Wolves on the Golden Panthers’ home court. Arkansas State went into the game with a 1-11 record against FIU in Miami and picked up their first road win in the series since a 85-74 overtime win during the 2004-05 season, snapping a four-game losing streak at U.S. Century Bank Arena. CAREER HIGH FOR MORRILL: Arkansas State freshman forward Jane Morrill hit 9-of-13 shots from the field on her way to a career-high 19 points in the Red Wolves 62-61 victory over FIU Jan. 5, but no shot was bigger than her three-pointer with .5 remaining on the game clock. Morrill took an inbounds pass from junior guard NeNe Hurst and dropped in the game-winning three from the left corner to give the Red Wolves their first win in Miami since the 2004-05 season. She followed that up with her first double-digit rebound performance in ASU’s Jan. 8 game at FAU, pulling down a career-best 10 boards against the Owls to go along with three blocked shots. For the week, she averaged 12.5 points on 61.1 percent shooting from the field, 8.5 rebounds and 2.0 blocked shots per game. DOUBLE DOUBLE-DOUBLES: When Arkansas State’s Shay Scott and Quinishia McDowell notched double-doubles in ASU’s 59-42 victory over Stephen F. Austin Dec. 21, it marked the first time this season that two players have recorded a double-double in the same game. Scott finished the night with 21 points and 16 rebounds, while McDowell chalked up 10 points and 11 rebounds. Scott’s 21 points against the Ladyjacks were at the time the most scored by an ASU player this season and was also the first 20-point performance this year by an A-State player. Junior guard NeNe Hurst came close to being the third ASU player to record a double-double in the SFA game, finishing with 13 points and nine rebounds.
2011 senior Jazmine Taylor finished her career seventh on the all-time A-State assists chart and seventh on the all-time steals chart. She also finished her career with 79 blocked shots to rank first all-time among guards and sixth among all players at Arkansas State.
