Cox finished the night with 18 points, and 15 rebounds, earning her 3rd double-double of the season.
“The win felt amazing,” said Cox. “ Our team always works so hard to get a win and in making those 2 free throws I felt like I was doing my part in helping establish our goal of beating Jessup. That win boosted the team’s confidence and showed us how great we are when we play as a team. It also helped us knock Jessup out of 2nd place, and that’s always an added bonus.”
