Emerson tied a season high earlier this week attempting 24 three-pointers, eight attempts above the Lion's season average of 17 attempts per game.
Senior Shannon Norton opened up Tuesday’s game with two quick three-pointers getting the Lions offense off to a quick leading start, and they never looked back.

Goldberg garnered respect from his teammates before the season started, which prompted them to elect him as a captain when practices officially got under way.

O’Brien, who appointed Venter as team captain last year, said he thinks the former player is doing a great job so far.
Throughout the game, Cloutier contributed a steal and two blocks to the Emerson effort, which she later said was an attempt to be more aggressive on defense to spark the team on offense.
Gould said that this year presents a big chance for the team’s leaders to bring the squad to success.
