@charlottewbb use big second half to defeat LaSalle, 73-56

In a tale of two halves, the Charlotte women’s basketball team pulled away in the second half riding a career day from Jennifer Hailey to post a 73-56 victory at La Salle Sunday afternoon, equaling the school record for consecutive wins with 11. The 49ers’ senior notched her 12th-straight, which is one in every Atlantic 10 contest this season, the 21st of the season and 41st of her career double-double with a career-high tying 27 points and a career-best 18 rebounds.

Harrison’s buzzer beater propels LaSalle past Saint Louis, 49-46

With La Salle leading 46-43 with under five seconds to go, the onus was on Saint Louis to deliver. The Billikens did, knotting the game at 46-46 with 4.8 seconds to go and overtime all but certain. But Shanel Harrison was not having any of that, getting the ball on the inbounds and zipping the length of the court around Billiken defenders to launch a desperation heave at the buzzer – and sinking that attempt for three points and the 49-46 Atlantic 10 win at Tom Gola Arena on Wednesday afternoon.
