When you have five starters score in double figures and you only turn the ball over eight times, you have to figure that you have a chance to win. On Wednesday night, the Archers had more than enough to race by the hosts, Southeastern Illinois College, 85-57. Returning 1st team All-American Chrishana Wilson added her third consecutive double-double, as she scored 17 points and pulled down 14 rebounds, and for fun, Wilson picked up 4 steals and added a blocked shot. Andranae Wash scored 13 points and dished out 8 assists, while adding 3 steals to her impressive evening statline. Ellisha Davis scored 16 points, Simone Rodney poured in 12 points and Caprise Hairston added 13 points to round out the double digit scoring for the starting five. Erica Waeltermann added 4 steals off the bench to aid in the victory. The Archers were extremely tough on glass as they pulled down 44 rebounds, including an impressive 20 offensive rebounds, including 8 on the offensive side from Wilson.
The 7th ranked Lady Archers move to 7-0 on the season and return to the home court at Forest Park for a 1 pm tip on Saturday against 4th ranked Kankakee Community College.
