The Lady Owls bounced back and defended their home court with a big win against Toccoa Falls 76-58. The Owls came out after halftime and had an explosive third quarter where they scored 23 points to take over the game. They followed that up with a 24 point fourth quarter to seal the first double-digit victory of the season for the Owls. The Owls forced 21 turnovers and had 10 steals on the afternoon. They also controlled the boards 47-38. Kalie Mayo recorded her first double-double of the season, leading the Owls with a career-high 26 points and 10 rebounds. Danielle Hinkelman followed with 16 points and KJ Mckoy followed her with 12 points. Sam Hoyle had her third consecutive game with over 10 rebounds, with 13 boards on the night.
"This was a quick turn around for our team after a hard game the night before, but they responded well and everyone contributed to this convincing team win. Anytime we have three players scoring in double digits it's a good night for us. We have struggled offensively at times this season but today we put up our most points so far. Defensively we have done a good job holding teams under 60, now it's just focusing on taking smart shots and hitting foul shots," Coach Davis said about her team's performance.
