Perkins, Robinson pace Tide women

TUSCALOOSA | The University of Alabama women's basketball team defeated Arkansas-Pine Bluff, 79-60, Saturday at Foster Auditorium to improve to 3-0.

Senior Meghan Perkins and junior Jasmine Robinson led the Crimson Tide in scoring with 14 points each.

"I sit here and think we didn't play all that well, and we didn't, but we scored 79 points," Alabama coach Wendell Hudson said. "We made them commit 40 turnovers. The game didn't go the way I would have liked for it to go, but the key to this whole thing was we never stopped playing. We didn't play as well as we have played before. When you don't play as well, and you still score 79 points and beat a team that made some shots and shot well from the free throw line, you cannot get too discouraged about everything."

Joining Perkins and Robinson in double figures were redshirt sophomore Kaneisha Horn, scoring 12 points, junior Shafontaye Myers with 11 points, and sophomore Daisha Simmons, who added 10 points. Simmons also had a game-high seven steals and five assists.

Golden Lion senior LaKendra Marsh scored a game-high 16 points, while senior Jenise Gentry collected a game-best six rebounds.

Alabama forced 40 turnovers, 23 of which were steals. The Tide also out-rebounded the Lions, 47-42, including a 25-11 advantage on the offensive glass.
Alabama returns to the court Monday for a 6:30 p.m. game against North Texas.
