No. 5 Empire girls Record: (7-5), coming off a 36-21 win versus Temple. Stength: Outside Shooting — seniors Kaelyn Allensworth and Melaina Yearby can light it up behind the arc. If they get on a hotstreak the Bulldogs will be hard to stop. Weakness: Mental toughness — If the shots aren’t falling, Empire starts to get in their own heads. They can get frustrated and that plays into the opponents hands. Player to Watch: senior Jessica Carney — Carney has provied exceptional defensive play all year for the Bulldogs, but she will be tested in this tournament by some excellent post players. First-round matchup: vs. No. 4 Ryan on Monday at 5:00 p.m.
