Carrington sets school record in loss:
NSU senior Carrington Fox finished with six blocks in an overtime loss to Washburn on Saturday, but she managed to set a school record along the way.

Fox now has 124 blocks in her career at NSU, putting her atop the school's all-time list. She passed Gaile Cook, who had 121 from 1989 to 1991.

"She's been a stellar defender for us," NSU coach Randy Gipson said. "She plays with great effort and great presence on the defensive end. She's deserving of any record that she can set."

Hobbs, Gipson have a chat: NSU guard Bryton Hobbs didn't attempt a field goal in the first half of NSU's win on Saturday. He scored two points by shooting two free throws that came via a technical foul on Washburn.

Early in the second half, Hobbs was pulled from the game while Matt Logan went in. With Hobbs sitting next to head coach Larry Gipson, Hobbs appeared to be having a heart-to-heart with Gipson.

However, Gipson wouldn't reveal any details.

"That's a coach-player issue that I'm not going to discuss," Gipson said.

Hobbs went back in the game with 13:04 left and played the rest of the game. He finished with 11 points, five assists and four rebounds.
