Girls Varsity Basketball · Length, Quickness Difference In Lady Hoops loss At South Central


UNION MILLS, IN. – Length, quickness, attacking the basket . . . all traits of the game that ultimately play a role in the outcome.

Saturday, the South Central girl’s basketball brought all three phases against the LaVille Lancers in a 66-25 decision.

The Satellites forced eight first quarter turnovers and took a 20-0 lead before Elena Lindke found Trynitie Cox for the first Lancer score.

“South Central plays hard and fast,” said LaVille coach Corey Duncan.  “Their length and quickness on defense forced us into a lot of turnovers.”

After a 40-10 halftime deficit, the Lancers battled in the third quarter, as Trynitie Cox scored six of her career-high 16 points.

“At halftime I challenged Trynitie to shoot or attack the rim every time she received the ball,” explained Duncan.  “She did just that. We need her to do this on a regular basis to be successful.”
Cox would finish with 16 points, 10 rebounds, two steals, two blocks and an assist.
The Lancers managed to cut down on turnovers in the second half and battle for just a 26-15 margin.
“I felt the first half we had a lot of passing turnovers and the second half we limited those a bit more,”  concluded Duncan.  “That was a good game for our youthful guards to see what they can and cannot do against good teams. We have to work on being able to think ahead to the next pass.”

LaVille (1-1) will face Bremen in the home-opener Tuesday, November 6.  The JV game tips at 6 p.m.
