Hey good evening boys and girls... welcome inside the locker room... he's petar hood... i'm justin prince... and pete... it's ladies night in the locker room....girls sectional play beginning this week... although pushed back another day or two thanks to another lady...yeah mother nature tried her best to keep sectional play from happening this week... the cold that started tuesday night postponed many first round games to tonight...but still the hoops went on..
And we were up for a good bunch tonight..
Including one in dekalb between two s-a-c foes in snider and carroll...up to dekalb we go.... snider bested the chargers just a week ago in s-a-c action at kilmer court..
And the panthers came out ready tonight as well... and they would come out fast.
Da'leshia davis whips a ball across the court to nehkai boone who drives into the lane and gets the floater to go that's good for two for the lady panthers.then davis again, looking like john barnes out there, finds nyasia hardy with the long pass, she drives and gets hers to go for two more.both the old and young, happy about thatlady chargers, not losing focus though, the ball would make its way to emily parrett out on the wing, she gets finds the bottom of the bucket for the long two.snider would respond though on a quick drive down the court by davis who dishes it to hardy who gets the layup to go.but carroll, pulling out a tight one tonight, olivia hoeppner with the catch and shoot for three and the chargers advance 49-42 your final.
They get east noble in the next game 2 at dekalb.
The lady barons versus northrop bruins this game was heating up in the third.
Dekalb holding a slight lead, but the lady bruins, using good ball work to find treva datcher who works the post and pulls northrop within three.you'll see a good heads up play by northop's destiny jackson, but dekalb gathers the ball and capitalizes on the confusion as krysten butler finds brooke destinee lockwood who battles for two down on the boards.
Northrop not messing up this swipe and grab job though as j'asia scott takes it from butler.
She goes almost the length of the floor and finishes the play off herself to give her team the lead.
Northrop would look back as another good defensive play from destiny jackson.
She takes the pass and goes the length of the floor, adding the euro step for flair and gets the bucket plus one, the lady bruins take the win by score of 54 to 43 and move on to face northside ááástaying in class 4a... sectional 6 at homestead... the host spartans taking on wayne tonight...áááspartans in control from the word go in this one... already a five nothing game... sydney graber intercepts the lob pass..
No one picks her up and she goes coast to coast for the bucket...áááa few possessions later... more from homestead on the offensive end... kara gealy finds haley swing... swing knocks down the 15 footer... game high 15 from her...áááand they continued to keep their foot on the gas... off another generals turnover... sylare starks kicks ahead to graber... she drops home the layup... áááthen... ayanna patterson pushing the pace... that's an easy bucket for two of her 15..
That caps a 17-0 run to start things for sparty... ááágenerals would finally get on the board late... shiara alexander cleans up the miss for the bucket...ááábut homestead would run away with this one tonight... they led 47-5 at half... they roll on to the sectional final with the 76-13 victory... ááásouth side would love another shot at sparty in that title game..
