The best the Lady Argos (6-17, 3-12 GSC) could muster was a tie, but UWG (14-8, 8-6) never gave up the lead. Four minutes into the second half, the Wolves held a double-digit lead, as the defense forced 25 turnovers to help make the difference in the game.
The other difference was the 3-point shooting, where the Wolves went 8-of-20 from beyond the arc, while West Florida was just 2-of-6 from long range.
Peoples scored a game-high 23 points, shooting 3-of-6 from 3-point range, while Brittany Johnson had 12 points and nine boards to go along with JaDechia Hill's 14-point effort.

In the second half, the Wolves chipped away at the lead throughout, but every time West Florida (12-11, 7-8) had an answer and kept the lead in double figures for most of the second half.
Thomas Higginbotham was the main scoring threat with 22 points, while Quincy Hill got things going in the second half and finished with 19. Also scoring in double figures for the Wolves was Sean Boston with 11 and Taylor Cochran with 10, as each had a team-high seven rebounds.
For the Argos it was Ellis Young who exploded for 41 points on 15-of-22 shooting — no 3-pointers attempted — and going 11-of-18 from the free-throw line.

The momentum from Friday's sweep carried into Saturday for the Wolves with a 5-2 win over Tiffin before falling 7-0 against North Georgia in the nightcap of the second day at the Charger Chillout in Decatur, Ala.
It didn't take long for the Wolves (3-3) to get on the board, as Haley Richards scored on a wild pitch followed by Morgan Sheridan's two-run single, scoring Nicole Yancey and Heather Crow for the 3-0 lead after one.
Richards scored her second run of the game on her own in the second with a solo home run before Crow's single scored Anna Lester for the five-run advantage.
UWG wouldn't score again, but that was more than enough for Katie Shultes in the circle. The freshman went all seven innings, giving up three runs — two earned — on five hits with a pair of strikeouts for her third straight win.
The second game was a different story for the Wolves, who were held to just two hits while North Georgia broke the scoreless tie with three in the fourth and added a pair of runs in each the fifth and the sixth to put the game away.
Today will mark the final day of the Chillout, as UWG will take on Southern Indiana at 10 a.m. before wrapping up with Barry at 4 p.m.
