"We knew coming in what Chaminade liked to do," she said. "We watched video and we knew they weren't very comfortable against the zone and we wanted to pressure and try to make them take strong outside shots. They hit some, but they definitely struggled at other times. That worked to our advantage."
Chaminade did experience shooting woes in the first half, as the team was just eight of 32 (25%) from the field. After taking a 2-0 lead to begin the game, the Eagles never enjoyed a lead the remainder of the contest.
Napier took control of the game early, hitting two three-pointers en rout to her 14 points in the first stanza. That helped the Guards take a 13-11 lead.
