At halftime, Lambert thought it had figured Jenna Staiti out. The Lady Longhorns erased a 16-4 deficit and stormed to a 24-20 lead over West Forsyth at intermission, thanks to scrappy defense against Staiti and the shooting threat of Shayna Lawrence, which pulled Staiti out of the paint and opened the middle enough for others to score. That all changed in the third, when Staiti—the 6-foot-5 center—started draining 3-pointers.
