Notes: The game is the Lone Star Conference South Division opener for both teams. The matchup was moved up to avoid three-game weeks during conference play. … WT beati the Zias 75-54 on Nov. 28 in its Thanksgiving Classic in Canyon, cruising to a 43-20 halftime lead. … Neither team has played since Dec. 6, due to semester finals. … ENMU added two players to its roster at the end of the semester on Friday — 6-foot sophomore P Tiana Bryant of Roswell, a transfer from the University of New Mexico, and 5-10 freshman F Jessica Tully-Mitchell of Capitan, a transfer from Division III McMurry University in Abilene, Texas. … The four teams that have beaten the Zias — WT, Fort Lewis (8-0), Emporia State (6-0) and Northeastern State (7-1) — .are a combined 26-2. … WT’s loss was to Emporia (58-57), Northeastern’s loss was to WT (69-64). … Senior P Celeste Stevenson shoots 51 percent from the field and leads three Lady Buffs scoring in double figures for the season at 16.7 ppg. … Through seven games, junior G Laci Lee tops ENMU in scoring at 13.1 ppg, followed by sophomore F Elizabeth Richards and senior P Jereena Bosket, both at 10.3. … Paced by Richards (9.0) and Lee (8.6), the Zias are outrebounding opponents by more than nine per game.
Quotable: “They’re just a good, solid team. They’re really athletic — defensively, they’re as physical and quick as anybody we play. But I think we’re a little more prepared this time for what they’ll throw at us.” — ENMU women’s coach Dan Buzard.
