The women’s basketball team kicked off their 2006-2007 season with a win against Penn State Berks on Tuesday, Nov. 21 at 5 p.m. Music blared and the crowd piled in as both teams warmed up before the big beginning of the season tip off.
As the starting five players on both teams walked onto the court, the energy was high especially on Cabrini’s bench. Head coach Bobbi Morgan started to pace back and forth as her team began to immediately dominate the women on Penn State Berks.
The energy that once filled the court soon fizzled out as the Lady Cavaliers continued to up the score while the Lady Lions struggled to make a shot.
By the end of the first half, Morgan had subbed in every sub on the bench and even then the Lady Cavs continued to own the game.
Each player on the women’s team added a spark on the court. The lady Cavaliers forced numerous turnovers, blocked shots and obtained rebounds under the boards. Having been able to sub in each player, the women’s scoring averages were all high. Morgan took no mercy on Penn State Berks as the second half began.
With the score at 50-17 already, her five starters once again took the floor and continued to up the score.
Although Penn State Berks doubled their points from the first to second half, it wasn’t enough to keep up with the Lady Cavaliers. With the final score of 82-36, the women’s basketball team started off their season on the right foot.
