Albany State women rout Tuskegee

ALBANY, Georgia — The Albany State Lady Rams fell in love with the long ball early in their game against Tuskegee Saturday afternoon at the HPER Gymnasium and it would help them get a convincing 73-40 victory.

The win improves the Lady Rams to 10-10 on the season and 10-2 in the SIAC.

After a sloppy first quarter that featured about a half dozen turnovers, ASU was able to move the ball and get Keidra Green open in the second. She knocked down four consecutive 3-pointers to give the Lady Rams a 22-15 lead in the second quarter.

Her sister, Kayla, also got active and followed that up with a 4-0 run of her own to push the lead to double digits. Albany State went into the half with a 32-22 lead despite 14 turnovers. Head coach Robert Skinner said they were able to protect the ball better toward the end of the half and that helped them build a lead.

“I think we just were able to move the ball and protect it a little bit better,” he said.
