It wasn’t all that long ago, back on Feb. 26, that the Lady Chucks hosted Moniteau in a regular season tilt on the eve of their season finale. Punxsy fired out of the gates in impressive fashion in that game, scoring 30 points in the first quarter to open up a 15-point lead and never looked back, cruising to a 69-40 win.
