“Playing for the last time on our home floor was big,” Brewer said. “And I think this was the first time my parents came to a home game. It was just a fun night to be able to play and put it all out there.”
UWF (22-4, 16-3 GSC) took down Valdosta State (17-9, 11-7 GSC) despite losing to the Blazers by double-digits earlier in the season.
A strong first half gave Brewer five points, six rebounds, three assists and a block and allowed UWF to take a 21-8 lead heading into the second quarter.
She finished the game with 19 points and seven rebounds, while Hall tacked on a 15-point, 12-rebound double-double.
Nieman added 17 points of her own on 64 percent shooting.
The Argonauts started the game by going on a 8-0 run, much in thanks to the early efforts of Brewer and Nieman, before Valdosta State got on the board with two made foul shots.
Despite the foul shots, UWF held Valdosta State without a field goal for the first 6:08 of the game.
The Argonauts continued the dominant defense throughout the first quarter, holding Valdosta State to only eight points on 30 percent shooting from the field.
In the second quarter it seemed like Valdosta State had a chance to cut into UWF’s lead, but with the shot clock winding down, Hall dumped the ball into the high-post for a give and go with Brewer that got Hall to the line for two free throws.
UWF’s defense stood strong for the rest of the half, holding Valdosta State to 15 points, their lowest single-half output of the season. But the Argonauts also suffered an offensive lapse of their own, finishing the half on 11-of-29 shooting after starting 9-for-16.
UWF also lost the turnover battle, not only in the first half but throughout the entire game.
“We’ve been harping on those turnovers and trying to get that under control,” UWF coach Stephanie Lawrence Yelton said. “But when we did turn it over tonight, we didn’t put our heads down. We went back to the defensive side of the floor and tried to get the ball back.”
UWF continued the slow play to start the second half, but a Brewer basket on one end and steal on the other turned into a fast-break 3-pointer for Fanny Hulmi off of an assist from Hall, and the Argos extended their lead to the biggest of the night at 18 points.
Halfway through the fourth quarter, the Argonauts pushed that lead to 30 points after Nieman grabbed a tough rebound, beat the Valdosta State press on her own, gave the ball up and then came back to it for a 3-pointer of her own.
UWF got their lead to 33 at one point, which allowed the Argonauts to cruise through the rest of the game and still win by 30.
Following the win over Valdosta State, UWF will close out the regular season this Saturday with a road game against Montevallo.
