The Argos opened the North Star Invitational with four Argos in double-digits, led by Amy Drake (Niceville, Fla/Winthrop) who poured in 24 total points. Drake was a perfect 5-for-5 from beyond the perimeter, and also went perfect 3-for-3 at the free throw line. Tiffany Williams (St. Petersburg, Fla./North Florida) turned in a total of 16 points, followed by Sabrina Stambouli (Quebec City, Quebec/Dawson) with 11 and Dominique Boykins (Houston, Texas/North Shore HS) who totaled 10. As a team, the Argos shot 46.7 percent from three point range and 47.3 percent from the field. The Argos battled hard with Henderson State in the first half, with Drake scoring the first West Florida points on her first three of the night. Drake continued on a nine-point run, giving UWF a 9-2 lead before HSU went on a 10 point run for a 12-9 lead. The squads exchanged the lead six times in the half, but HSU attempted to pull away with a 35-31 score. With 19 seconds on the clock, Drake drained a final three to send the Argos to the locker rooms just down by one, 35-34, at the half. Senior Jessie Ivey (Jay, Fla./Jay HS) opened the scoring in the second half, setting the pace with a three-pointer.
