Cochran, Moore Lead Veteran Women's Basketball Team

The Samford women's basketball team surprised the experts last year by going 19-10 in only its third season of competition. The Bulldogs were the nation's fifth best turnaround team, improving by 11 wins over the 8-19 mark of two years ago.

Three starters finished eligibility, including top scorer Jodi Morris (18 points a game) and assist leader Clarissa Tomlinson (201). But two starters return-point guard Aimee Cochran and center Cortney Moore-along with 10 other letterwinners.

Cochran, an All-Trans America Athletic Conference Second Teamer, started 81 straight games before a knee injury sidelined her for last year's finale. She averaged 12.4 points, 3.8 assists and 2.5 steals a year ago and has a chance to finish her career with 1,000 points, 400 rebounds, 400 assists and 300 steals.

Versatile Aimee Cochran leads women's team.

Moore, who has played in all 82 games since Samford women's basketball began, led the team in rebounding (6.8 a game) and blocked 42 shots. She has a shot at 600 career rebounds.

Seniors Wendi Wilcox, Danielle Pinkston and Clarissa Clark were effective performers off the bench.

"Our goal remains winning the TAAC championship," said Coach Janet Cone, who was rewarded in June with a new four-year contract. "Working hard is our trademark."
