The Runnin' Bulldogs have been haunted by slow starts this
season and poor play in the first half of most of their contests on the
year. GWU is 0-17 when trailing at
the half. Contrary the Runnin'
Bulldogs are 2-0 when leading at the halftime intermission. However, the Runnin' Bulldogs have
trailed by 10 points or more at the half in 15 different games this season.
LAST TIME OUT
In a 78-51 home loss to Liberty last Monday night, sophomore
guard Jasmine Dale, who played through injury for most of the second half,
scored a team-high 15 points on 5-of-8 shooting, while the freshmen trio of
Jessica Heilig, KiKi Smith and Mayhana Dunovant each had seven points apiece in
the loss. For the game, Liberty outscored Gardner-Webb 46-14 in points in the
paint, 19-8 in second chance points and 18-2 in fast break points. Gardner-Webb
did take advantage of Liberty's 18 turnovers, however, scoring 19 points off
the Lady Flames' miscues. However, Liberty shot 30-of-62 (48.4 percent) from
the field overall, while Gardner-Webb did not have the shooting touch at home
on Monday night, converting on only 15-of-53 (28.3 percent) shot attempts in
the 40 minutes of play.

contests before returning home to host Winthrop on February 11th at 5 p.m. The Runnin' Bulldogs will host their "Pink
