WKU Basketball Game Grades: Chris Harrison-Docks has career day


Another Saturday, another WKU double header in hoops action. Only this time, the results were split between the two squads.

Michelle Clark-Heard’s nationally ranked Lady Toppers saw their 14-game winning streak come to an end, as they suffered their first loss of the seas to the hands of UTSA.

A+. Alexis Govan played her heart out today in just her second game of her college career in her home state. The senior scored a game high 22 points off of 8-of-13 shooting, and 2-0f-4 at the free throw line. She also grabbed a rebound and threw out an assist. With Chastity Gooch not having a very good game today, Alexis mostly had to do it all for the squad.. G/F. Lady Toppers. ALEXIS GOVAN

B+. The Hazard, Kentucky native had a pretty solid day for the Lady Toppers. Noble hit nine out of thirteen free throws, three out of her seven shots from the field, snatched four rebounds, and dished out six assists. She had a total of 16 points to be the second leading scorer for WKU today behind Govan.. G. Lady Toppers. KENDALL NOBLE

Freshman guard Tashia Brown wasn’t much of a freshman today. Brown scored 12 points off of a 44 percent shooting day and three free throws. She also had three boards. Along with those numbers, Tashia didn’t commit one turnover. Pretty good performance from a freshman bench player, especially when players aren’t scoring high.. G. Lady Toppers. TASHIA BROWN. C+

Outside of Tashia Brown. LADY TOPPERS BENCH. D-. You could probably assume that the bench didn’t even travel with the team to San Antonio based on their performance yesterday. Besides T-Brown’s 12 points, the rest of the bench didn’t score. To make matters a little better, the bench as a whole did record eleven rebounds. They didn’t have a single assist, though. Bench production has to be better down the stretch for WKU.. 0 Points

Now to Ray Harper’s squad. The Hilltoppers looked to improve to 14-5 overall and 7-0 in Conference USA with a win over conference foe UTSA, and are off to their best conference start since their days in the OVC. WKU defeated the Roadrunners, 83-74 inside of E.A. Diddle Arena to win their ninth-straight game. It was mostly the WHOLE team that contributed today, but the MVP would have to be Chris Harrison-Docks.

A+. “THREE BALL – CHRIS HARRISON-DOCKS” is what you heard all day in Diddle Arena. The sophomore guard from scored a WKU high 20 points off of six, yes six, three pointers (tying a career high) and two free throws. CHD kept the Hilltoppers’ intensity up today by his outstanding performance and impressive shooting. If it wasn’t for Chris, the Toppers would have lost by 11. Keep it up, CHD!. G. Hilltoppers. CHRIS HARRISON-DOCKS

A-. Bowling Green native <a href=. F. Hilltoppers. GEORGE FANT

B+. Senior shooting guard <a href=. G. Hilltoppers. T.J. PRICE

B. Hilltopper Nation couldn’t be more happier with the way the Tops’ bench has performed over the last several days. Every, yes <em>every</em>, WKU player that saw action today scored, except for <a href=. Combined for 18 points. Five of Six Scored. HILLTOPPER BENCH
