The women's basketball team took to the road for the first time this season on Friday night and forgot to bring its A-game. Everyone, that is, besides senior forward Kourtney Brown.
The Bulls only shot 30 percent from the field, and they fell to Temple (1-2), 74-64.
Brown continues to etch her name into the Buffalo record books this season. In the game against the Owls, she set the career mark for blocks with 166 and moved into fourth place all-time with 797 rebounds. She finished with 17 points, 18 rebounds, and four blocks in the loss.
Bulls head coach Linda Hill-MacDonald has not been happy with the offensive production of the Bulls early on this year.
"We are not shooting well from 3-point range," Hill-MacDonald said. "I don't know why we insist on settling for threes when our offense provides for much more high scoring opportunities."
Buffalo took the lead for the first time in the game in the second half, when senior guard Ashley Zuber knocked down two free throws. The Owls responded with an 8-2 run, and Temple never looked back for the rest of the game.
"Temple won the game on the foul line," Hill-MacDonald said. "We had the same number of field goals, but they shot well from the foul line tonight."
Junior guard Brittany Hedderson had a team-high 19 points and added seven rebounds and six assists.
The Bulls turned things around on Sunday in their matchup against Bucknell. They opened the second half with a 10-0 run and never looked back, winning by a score of 72-53.
"It was good to see us playing together and being comfortable together out there on the floor," Hill-MacDonald said in a press release. "We used a lot of different lineups out there and for the most part I thought the chemistry was there throughout. I am really pleased with everybody's contribution today."
