Supposedly a picture of Sonia Reis vs. Sancho Lyttle.
It's been a rough year for Perfumerias (3-1) so far. On the road, they took a 48-36 lead at halftime but home team Cadi la Seu (1-3) played the visitors tough in the second half. Not tough enough, however, as Perfumerias escaped with an 86-81 win.
The box score is here. No pictures or good write-ups just yet, but there is a brief write-up here.
According to Ricard Alonso-Bartol, Perfumerias tends to have trouble getting into games at the beginning. Cadi la Seu scored the first eight points. However, Perfumerias woke up and tied 10-10. After taking a 24-19 lead in the first quarter, Perfumerias opened up the lead to 17 points in the second quarter, 42-25. However, Cadi la Seu fought back and brought themselves up to 48-36 by halftime.
Cadi la Seu managed to close the game to two points, 60-58, with three minutes left in the third quarter but Perfumerias got another run and led 69-60. Perfumerias retained the lead, but Cadi la Seu made one final run to close within 84-80...but it wasn't enough.
A look at the Four Factors:
Field goal percentage: Perfumerias 52 percent, Cadi la Seu 49 percent. Perfumerias was 6-for-14 in 3-point shooting, Cadi la Seu was 5-for-15.
Turnovers: Perfumerias 15, Cadi la Seu 19. A slight advantage for Perfumerias.
Offensive rebounds: Cadi la Seu 33 percent, Perfumerias 22 percent. Sancho Lyttle's three offensive rebounds led Perfumerias.
Free throw percentage: Perfumerias 20-for-25, Cadi la Seu 16-for-19. Something tells me that this was a very physical game.
And the performances of the game:
Cadi la Seu
Sonia Reis: 22 points, 5 rebounds.
Kerri Gardin: 16 points, 5 rebounds from the Connecticut Sun forward.
Jasmon Covington: If you made it down this far, this is the interesting story. Jasmon "Jazz" Covington graduated from Louisville in 2007 and this year, she played for the Women's Blue Chip Basketball League's Atlanta Battlecats. Who says that the WBCBL doesn't have good players? Jazz scored 7 points and 6 rebounds in 22 minutes, but she fouled out of the game.
Sancho Lyttle: 21 points, 9 rebounds. 7-for-14 shooting. Clearly, the best player of the game.
Isabel Sanchez: 17 points. Sanchez was fouled 7 times in the game.
Olga Podkovalnikova: 11 points.
Le'coe Willingham: 10 points, 5 rebounds, 5 turnovers.
