Long recognized for her defensive versatility, senior Naqaiyyah Teague is undoubtedly warming to her responsibilities as the Bulldogs’ point guard. Teague keeps everyone involved, has become a respected shooting threat and remains true to her original strength in leading a stout defense.

The defense is relentless, the balance of its offense vast, but what has driven RBC’s fast start is an unmistakable chemisty of its parts. The collective effort it used to outrebound Neptune, 40-24, during a 48-29 victory over Neptune on Saturday, was paced by the activity of Caroline Corcoran, Grace Fallon, Alex Alfano, Mary Kate Caverly and Alex Barazotti.
