Analysis: The Sting will need to slow the inside play of the Bulldogs, led by Sophie Brunner. The Sting can counter with an up-tempo attack featuring sophomore guard Ebony Bailey and point guard Brittany Mitchell. Records could be deceiving, as the Sting have played many of their games against bigger schools.
