College Notebook: Murchison rebounding for Tribe
BY STEVE DeSHAZO
The 2010–11 season was no fun for Chanel Murchison or William & Mary’s women’s basketball team. The Colonial Forge High School graduate tore an ACL in preseason practice, and the Tribe finished 3–25, Murchison is healthy now, and so is the Tribe, which is 6–4 after rallying to beat Seton Hall 61–54 last Wednesday.
Murchison, a junior, scored just two points in the game. As usual, though, her main contribution came on defense. She helped hold the Pirates’ leading scorer, Jazzmine Crew, to two second-half points. Crew averages 18.6 per game. William & Mary returns to action tomorrow, hosting George Washington.
Shegog scored 19 points and had seven rebounds and a career-high seven blocked shots in a 65–61 win over East Carolina on Tuesday night in Myrtle Beach, S.C. She reached 1,000 career points in that game. She leads the Atlantic Coast Conference in scoring (17.4 points) and blocks (3.2) and ranks fifth in rebounds (8.5).
