ATLANTA - Head Coach MaChelle Joseph calls Alex Montgomery a "big-time player" and the senior co-captain proved her coach right in a 68-48 win over the Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders at Alexander Memorial Coliseum on Friday night.
Montgomery posted game-highs of 16 points on 5-of-10 shooting and 10 rebounds for her third consecutive double-double and 13th of her career to lead Tech. The Tacoma, Wash., native showed she can do it all for the Jackets as she dished out a game-high tying five assists and plucked a contest-best three steals.
"Middle Tennessee is a good team, they were a Sweet 16 team a year ago," Joseph said. "It was good to see our kids come out and compete the way they did; to not quit. We knew they weren't going to quit and that we had to battle until the end."
