Snapp and Madison Brown, sophomores, were the only Lady Tigers to score in each quarter. Head coach Bryan Werner commended Snapp’s 2-way impact after the game.
“She’s as athletic as any girl in the conference,” Werner said. “Her on defense, she’s got long arms and she’s active. She can be tough at the top of the zone. She’s also capable of getting down and rebounding … And on offense, she just opens everything up because, every coach knows she can drive.”
Riley Rollins scored 10 points on two 3-pointers to lead the Lady Greyhounds. Jodi Delong added eight.
