Post play pushes Wilde Lake to win over Hammond
Wilde Lake knew that it had a decided height advantage over Hammond, and it took full advantage of that fact.
Forwards Lindsey Williams and Kourtney Harrison (14 rebounds) each scored 13 points in the Wildecats’ 55-32 victory over the Golden Bears on Saturday afternoon.
“We knew that we had to be strong and that’s our thing. We know where we are on the court and we know what we need to do,” Williams said. “We got some easy put backs and layups.”
Rachel Lazris also scored 13 points for the Wildecats, who saw 10 players score in the game.
“That height advantage thing came into play for us against Marriotts Ridge (last week) and we’re really starting to get good entry passes in from the guards,” Wilde Lake coach Caitlin Williams said.
“We’ve been working on our outside-inside game. That kind of fell apart over the last two games but today we were able to execute it again. Our posts were calling for the ball high and used their height.”
Wilde Lake never trailed in the game, but had a tough time with Hammond early. Keyuana Griffin finished a drive to the basket and Cambria Conley added a free throw as the Golden Bears trailed, 9-5, late in the first quarter.
Then the host Wildecats began to work the ball into the post. In the second quarter, Harrison had three straight buckets in the paint – two on offensive rebounds – to stretch the lead to 19-10.
