Richmond falls to Charlotte

Charlotte 73, Richmond 62
They played this one early as part of Dream Big Day for the Richmond schools, but this was anything but a dream for the Spiders (13-7, 4-2 A-10), who dropped their second straight. Jennifer Hailey unleashed 26 points and 14 rebounds for the 49ers. Abby Oliver (21 points) gave Richmond a 55-52 edge at the 7:23 mark, but Charlotte (16-5, 4-2) ran off 11 straight to steal this one back. Brittani Shells, who had an off shooting night on Saturday against Dayton, had another ragged effort, scoring 15 on 7-of-23 shooting. Crystal Goring put in a second consecutive consistent effort (14 points, 11 boards, 4 steals), but Charlotte dominated the paint, outscoring Richmond 52-28.
