Fairfield vs. Iona Halftime Report

Fairfield is down by seven at the half after squandering an early lead. 
  • Fairfield limited Iona's starting guards to 2 of 12 shooting, but Iona outscored Fairfield 18-8 in the paint. Anna McLean has eight points and Tiara Headen has nine points to lead the Gaels.
  • Sabra Wrice has a game-high 10 points and Lauren Groom has seven. But often the Stags have struggled to get open looks on offense. Plus when they do, the shots aren't falling like yesterday. 
  • Iona is perfect from the line, hitting seven of seven.
  • Megan Caskin picked up two fouls and played only nine minutes in the first half. Wrice brought the ball up. While Wrice has the handles, she is more of a shooting guard.
  • Iona and Fairfield are even in rebounds with both teams gathering in 19. Baendu Lowenthal leads the Stags with six.
  • Fairfield is going to have to start getting better looks offensively and hope that their shots start to fall. Also, they need to try to do a better job defending in the post. They have been able to for the most part shut down the perimeter game.
