A Look at the Ladyjacks
SFA sits second in the WAC standings, one game behind Southern Utah. The Ladyjacks are one of two teams who still haven’t lost more than ten games overall this year.
The Ladyjacks are seventh in the nation, first in the conference, in field goal percentage with 47.4%. Aiyana Johnson leads the conference, and is 36th in the nation, in field goal percentage with 54.9% (152-for-277). Johnson has turned up the pressure since the beginning of WAC play, as she has made 98 of 161 attempts, equaling out to 60.9%. Both Avery Brittingham and Destini Lombard also have 50+% field goal percentage on the year. Before being sidelined due to injury, Kurstyn Harden made 63.3% from the field in 21 games.
One key advantage the Ladyjacks have is the number of players able to make the shots beyond the arc. SFA has five players who have more than 70 shots from deep and have at least a 34% from the three-point line. Tyler McCliment-Call and Angel Scott leads the team with 42 shots from beyond the arc and Lombard is the most effective deep shooter with 37.5%.
