Tide Women Slap Mercer By 24 In WNIT First Round Game...

on 3/17/2017 01:24:00 PM

      Crimson Tide Women's Basketball:

Junior Ashley Williams' double-double of 19 points and 12 rebounds propelled the Alabama women's basketball team to an 81-57 victory over Mercer in the first round of the Women's National Invitation Tournament on Thursday in Coleman Coliseum. 

With the win, the Crimson Tide moves to 20-13 on the season, marking its first 20-win season since the 1998-99 campaign.

"I was really pleased with our kids today,"
said Alabama head coach Kristy Curry. "It's a hard week in the fact that you have so much time from when you've finished your (conference) tournament. Everybody else is on spring break having a fun time, and we are practicing." 

"I really have a lot of respect, especially for these two (Ashley Williams and Hannah Cook) for their leadership this week. It's just a testament to how much our kids want to win and continue to grow the program and be successful. We learned how it felt a year ago losing at Tulane. To get a 20th win today is a step forward, and I'm real proud of our team."

Next up, Alabama hosts Little Rock in the second round of the WNIT on Sunday, March 19. Tip is slated for 2 p.m. CT.

"We really appreciate our fans that were in the building today, including our band and everyone else that was here to support us"
, added Curry. "We need a great crowd in here on Sunday. That would give us a great home-court advantage."
