The Cats placed three players in double figure scoring, Kaila'Shea Menendez lead all scorers with 16 points, followed by Rena Wakama with 14, and Alex Abraham with 10. In a game that saw 8 ties and 4 lead changes, the Cat's largest lead of 8 points came in the first half, while the Paladin's largest lead of 6 points came in the second half with 1:12 to play in the game, but the Cats cut the lead to 53-52, with 20 seconds left in the game, but free throws saved the day for the Paladins. Furman's last 9 points were made at the free throw line, and as we know, clutch free throw shooting wins games.
The Cats outscored Furman 18-7 in points off turn-overs, and 16-6 in second chance points. However, the Cats only shot 28% in field goals, to Furman's 39%. But those 14 (of 19 attempted) made free throws by Furman, is what won the game.
