Kuna and West

The girls pulled a sweep this week with victories over both Kuna and West.  The defense keeps pulling the girls to victory as the offense comes around.  Against Kuna both Matti and Nire had outstanding games playing the post.  They both made moves in the post that made me do a double take....looks like they have been practicing!!! Great job.  Our group of guards also had a strong game against Kuna.  Lizzy played an important role in helping Lily get the ball up against the press and enabled us to get into our offense.  Megan, Kelly and Torri played strong on the wings.  Katie and Katherine headed the press and helped cause many turnovers.  The girls did an outstanding job down the stretch controlling the ball and taking valuable time off the clock with a lead.  Something that they hadn't worked on yet.  Way to be coachable.....

Against West the girls again got off to an incredible start with their defense.  We are starting to get better at converting our steals into points.  As the game wore on, we started looking like a MASH unit on the bench with a few of the girls getting dinged up or not feeling well.  However, the team stepped up and really played well together under some adversity.  Lily had a break out game scoring a game high 20 points.  Everyone else chipped in evenly as we pulled away with an easy victory.  Great Job Ladies...... After the week we have improved to 4 and 1.  Next week we have South on Monday and then time off to eat turkey and rest up the the second half of the season...
