The Commodores will be led into the game by Tiffany Clarke. The senior forward is averaging 15.9 points and 8.3 rebounds per game, both team highs. Junior guard Jasmine Lister will join her in the starting lineup. Lister is posting 11.4 points and 5.7 assists per outing. Like Lister and Clarke, senior guard Elan Brown has started every game this season. Brown is posting 6.5 points and 6.0 rebounds per game. Freshman forward Heather Bowe is also expected to start. The Eau Claire, Wis., native has started the last four contests, recording double-digit points in three of those games. She is averaging 6.4 points and 4.8 rebounds per game. For Thursday's 62-46 win over Missouri, senior Gabby Smith rounded out the starting five. The guard is posting 2.0 points and 1.3 rebounds per game. Head Coach Melanie Balcomb used three players off her bench against the Tigers, all freshmen. Guard Jasmine Jenkins had 10 points and is averaging 1.8 points and 1.1 assists per game. Fellow guard Morgan Batey pulled down 10 rebounds, adding four assists and three steals. Batey is averaging 1.5 points and 2.0 rebounds per game.
