LOOKOUT MOUNTAIN -- The performance by the Lady Scots basketball team during week twenty-one was, simply put, remarkable.  Covenant began the week with a loss on the road to Huntingdon College (a loss which dropped its season record to 1-12), but subsequently turned things completely around.  During the two game home stand at the end of the week, the team came up with two big wins by way of utter domination.  At the forefront of this domination was Margaret Cross, winner of Covenant’s player of the week award for week twenty-one.
Through the first ten weeks of the year, the Lady Scots were all about defense.  The team was shutting down opponents and creating great opportunities for the offense but at the same time struggled to ever find a flow on the other end of the court.  That struggle ended abruptly on Friday when Cross, with her 12 first half points, seemed to remove the lid from the basket and paved the way for a 48% shooting night for the Lady Scots.  The very next day, she dropped 18 in the 73-53 stomping of Salem College.
For the week, Cross shot 11-17 from beyond the arc, a jaw dropping 65%.  The junior went 15-31 from the field but most importantly, she added a spark that has since helped the Lady Scots ignite in the second half of the season.
