The Eagles have been on fire lately, a big comeback win over New England college tonight comes after a big win last week over Castleton, the No.1 team in the NAC.
A big reason for the the turnaround has been the re-emergence of Sami Ireland. The sophomore forward has nearly doubled her scoring output the last few weeks after struggling the majority of the season.
The reason for the sudden turnaround? Ireland starred as the goalie for the women's soccer team this fall and came into the season not in basketball shape.
She admitted that it took a toll on her physically and mentally.
"You know I was just getting down on myself which in turn made me play worse, but it was just basically the support of my teammates I stayed after with Kenzie and we shot around on our off days and I think my confidence started to build up,"
