Skyhawks Warming Up Before a Game
Allen University
Women's Basketball - Sat, Feb. 4, 2017

Columbia, S.C. – Point University (20-5; 13-5 AAC) defeated Allen University (11-14; 7-11 AAC), 79-73, in Saturday, Feb. 4 Appalachian Athletics Conference women's basketball action.  The Skyhawks have won six consecutive games and currently rest in third place in the AAC standings.  With the win, the Skyhawks have now won at least 20 games in back-to-back seasons.


After the conference victory, Point head coach Tory Wooley declared, "Today's win was huge for our program.  Not only did our players compete together and get the victory in a competitive atmosphere, but they achieved back-to-back 20-win seasons.  We have other goals to obtain this season, but I would like to take time and celebrate my assistant coach Rudie Denson and every member of our women's basketball program for their commitment to this journey.  Our players are playing together, sharing the ball offensively and getting defensive stops when it counts.  We are going to need more of that moving forward in conference play."


Forward Courtney White (JR/Gulfport, MS) secured a double-double in her third straight game with 17 points and 11 rebounds.  Guard Alexia Manning (JR/Columbus, GA) scored a team-high 21 points and was a perfect 4-of-4 from beyond the three-point line.  Forward Raven Brown (JR/Marietta, GA) scored 13 points, guard Candace Rhodes (JR/Stone Mountain, GA) scored 10 points, and guards Brianna Jones (JR/Charlotte, N.C.) and Deja Smith (JR/Baton Rouge, LA) both finished with eight points.


Guard Kamya Thomas led all scorers in the game with 32 point on 6-of-13 shooting on three-pointers, and Dekoya Mack added 19 points and made four 3-pointers.


NEXT GAME:  Coached by Tory Wooley, third-place Point University continues its Appalachian Athletics Conference schedule with a Wednesday, Feb. 8 home game against Bryan College in West Point, Ga., at 5:30 p.m.
