Post scoring key for Arizona against BYU and in rest of NCAA Tournament

Trinity Baptiste caught an entry pass above her head, took a power dribble to her right and pressed her shoulder into her defender to create space to elevate for an easy 2-pointer.

The strong move accounted for Arizona’s first points against Stony Brook and set the tone in a dominant 79-44 win in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.

“She’s going in there aggressive...and that’s what we need from her in order to win,” senior forward Sam Thomas said.

The low-post duo of Baptiste and Cate Reese went on to combine for 34 points on 15-of-19 shooting, and Thomas is right—that is a winning formula.
