After trips to Graham, Chapel Hill, Durham and Pittsboro, the Orange women’s basketball team finally got to play a home game on Tuesday night. The Lady Panthers defeated Carrboro 68-36. Orange put three players in double-figures, including junior Nikayla Whitted, who scored a career-high 12 points. Senior Samantha George, for the second time in two weeks, set her own career-high with 23 points off 10-of-13 shooting from the field. Point guard Aaliyah Harris added 18 point as Orange improved to 3-2. In addition to her 12 points, Whitted added six steals. Going into a difficult Central Carolina Conference, Orange will look to continue momentum when they face Riverside in Hillsborough on Friday night. The victory over the Jaguars started a five-game homestand for the Lady Panthers. After Riverside, Orange will host Western Alamance, East Chapel Hill and Walter Williams next week.
