Centenary's Joseph a rising star
The loss of Centenary Ladies leader Cierra Bush has caused sophomore Bethany Joseph to blossom into a star of her own.
The mini-guard from New Iberia had started just one game before last week's home game against Sam Houston State. Joseph scored a career-high 26 points and tied the school record with six 3-point field goals in the victory. But that output also made her the focus of opponent's game plans.
Playing the Summit League's defending champion, Oral Roberts, on Saturday, however, Joseph started slow but scored a team-high 19 points against the Golden Eagles, although the Ladies lost.
A silky smooth shooter from behind the 3-point line, Joseph was a great find for coach Steve Curtis.
