Dallas: Latta's Stats Say Bad, but Hatchell Says Good

By Jean Neuberger - March 26, 2007

Read the final stat line on UNC's Ivory Latta, and you'd think she had one of her worst games ever.

2-12 shooting
1-9 3-pt. shooting
4-4 free throws
9 points
4 rebounds
3 assists
4 turnovers
1 steal

To most, it doesn't look too impressive (especially with the shooting and assist/turnover ratio). But for UNC Coach Sylvia Hatchell, it was just right.

"If you look at the stats, you're mostly looking at the scoring," said Hatchell. "When Ivory's running the team, pushing them up the court, that's huge. She made all her free throws, and she basically did everything that we want her to do. Her shots weren't going in the hole as much as they usually do, but she did what we wanted her to do."

And Hatchell expects the same from Latta on Tuesday night, with one exception.

"Hopefully, the shots go in more," she said, smiling.
