Caps Win!

In her second game back with the Canberra Capitals Lauren Jackson looks like she may be getting her legs. She scored 13 points with 7 rebounds, 2 assists and a block in less than 8 minutes of action. Welcome back LJ! Tully seemed refreshed to have her PF back, chipping in 10 points, 8 REBOUNDS, 2 assists and 3 steals in her 18+ minutes. The Capitals had 5 players scoring double digits, led by the 16 of Natalie Hurst and 15 of Jenny Whittle. Angela Marina added 11 points as well. Whittle had a great game, adding 7 rebounds, 4 assists and 3 blocks to her 15 points.

The Lynx struggled offensively in addition to their inability to stop the raging Caps leading to a blowout score of 84-52. Katherine Hanks (14) and Deanna Smith (11) were the only players to hit double figure scoring for the Lynx who were held to 26.8% shooting from the field and only 22.7% from 3. The Capitals shot a blistering 41.4% from the field and a deadly 57.1% from three. The Capitals also controlled the boards with 55-46 advantage over the Lynx. The Capitals assisted on 23 of their 29 field goals, showing excellent teamwork and ball sharing. The Capitals face Adelaide tomorrow.
