The Crimson Storm has a +3.7 scoring and +3.9 rebounding margin on the year while shooting .421 overall and .321 from beyond the arc.  They allow a .366 overall and .309 three-point shooting mark.  Their biggest advantage on the season box score is in blocks where they average 6.1 per game.

 Against the Crimson Storm

The first meeting between the Lady Tigers and SNU this season resulted in a 60-73 loss in Bethany, Okla., for ECU.  Free throws became a key factor with the Lady Tigers going 6-of-13 from the line and allowing a 15-of-17 mark by the Crimson Storm.
