Transcript Injury Plagues Kenlaw Only eight players survive season Lady luck has not been a kind friend to coach Jessie Kenlaw's team this season. The Lady Cougars pounced on the competition early, accumulating an impressive 5-2 record. Unfortunately, their winning ways were about to take a turn for the worse. After six straight losses, Kenlaw witnessed her squad of thirteen diminish to nine mostly healthy players. "It's not going too good right now," Kenlaw said. "It's been frustrating for coaches and players." Especially for team members who have seen key players fall to injury. Post Sandra Perkins, a senior transfer from Columbia State (Tennessee) Junior College, was a promising recruit. She averaged 31.5 points, 9.9 rebounds, and 2.3 blocks for the Lady Chargers. "She's definitely a player in the paint," Kenlaw said. However, she suffered an injury to the knee during preseason that limited her capacity to perform. Although, Perkins did manage to be productive off the bench, averaging six points and four rebounds in 13 minutes of the first 10 games of the season, but the pain eventually caught up with her ending her season. "The loss of Perkins was a big surprise and the biggest disappointment of the season," Kenlaw said. "It was so painful for her to go out and practice with us, she had to pull herself out of the games." As if that were not enough, 6-foot freshman forward Shelsea Fore and sophomore post Yvette Westbrooks were also lost for the season due to injury. Kenlaw hoped things would get back on track with the return of freshman guard Niki Washington. Washington dislocated her shoulder December 12, against Lamar. On her return against Baylor (January 22) she contributed 11 points, five rebounds, and five steals in 16 minutes off the bench. Incidentally the Coogs beat the Bears during a decisive 8-2 run in the closing minutes with Washington scoring four of the eight. Following the game there was a team only meeting that seemed to cure all the team's aliments. "I don't think we have a problem anymore," said forward Pat Luckey. She added that the roster length mattered little in the win-loss columns. "It doesn't matter how many players you have, it's how well you do on the court, she said. "We need to start working together as a team. We need to know our role on the court." Well, the team seemed to be trying to pull it together when tragedy struck once again. Washington was lost to a stress fracture in her leg February 12, reducing the roster of active players to eight. "Injuries have definitely affected our style of play," Kenlaw said. "We know we have eight players to finish the season, so we have to do a lot more in the half court." Also, Kenlaw said the injuries have affected the transition game and the full court press more than any other areas, making them more of a half-court team.-Adam King and Michelle Morgan Just give me the ball, a] last season as a Lad; consistent guard.
