Dallas: UNC Carries Lead to the Half

By Jean Neuberger - March 27, 2007

It was all Tar Heels late in the first half, and that's been the difference in the game. Led by 10 points from Ivory Latta, Carolina ended the half on a 18-8 run, and they're up 35-28 at the half.

Purdue's Katie Gearlds has been held to just eight points so far, and Wisdom-Hylton only has six right now, with four of those coming late. Both of these girls MUST step up big for Purdue for the Boilers to come back.

Meanwhile, Carolina's plan of attack is working perfectly, as they're getting the better shooting from Latta, while dominating the inside with McCants and Larkins. Both girls have eight points for the Heels in the first half, as they've pushed the smaller Boilers around.

I'd like to see more from Purdue's Erin Lawless as well. She was a non-factor against Georgia, thanks to foul troubles, and she scored four quick ones to start the game today, but since has been quiet. Lawless has been one of Purdue's most reliable leaders all season, and now's the time to step it up.

More to come as we're at the half here at Reunion Arena here in Dallas.
