The Abilene Christian University women lost a heartbreaker on Saturday to Texas A&M/Corpus Christi at Moody Coliseum, and the problems began when head coach Julie Goodenough's Wildcats started missing three-pointers.

That part of their game is very important for ACU because is helps to energize the team on both ends of the floor.

"I think we're like a lot of teams. When you hit a big three-point shot it give syou energy to go play defense a little bit harder versus when you miss a shot. The threes do give us a lot of energy, give us momentum. Moody really erupts when we knock a three down, and that really helps our defensive intensity as well," said head coach Julie Goodenough.

As a team, the Wildcats have made 225 3-pointers and they are shooting almost 33% from behind the arch. Incarnate Word is next for ACU on Thursday in San Antonio. The women start at 5:30 and the men follow that at 7:30.
