Since the graduation of Alana Beard, the Journey had been searching for a program player - someone who could put the team on her back and guide it to a win. Last night, Lindsey Harding fully emerged as that player. I don't know what her stats were, because, frankly, first, I'm too lazy, but more importantly, she is the type of player where you never need a box score to appreciate how well she played. She calmly orchestrated her team's offense against the celebrated UNC pressure defense, scored when her team needed her (including a gorgeous drive in the game's final two minutes), and completely embarassed Ivory Latta on defense.
Mazel Tov Lindsey & the Journey!!
