Cascade hoops' teams searching for consistency

CLAYTON — Cascade held its first-ever annual Cadet Holiday Classic Basketball Invitational on Saturday. Cascade’s girls made it to the finals and the boys ended up in the consolation game following the first round of action.

Cascade’s girls fell 54-43 to Mitchell after coming back to take a 44-42 win against Oldenburg Academy and finished as the tournament’s runner-up. Cascade’s boys lost each of their games by 20 points, one to Lake Station 61-41 and then a 69-49 defeat against Hagerstown.

Cascade’s girls got off to a slow start against Mitchell in the final and the lack of energy plagued the Cadets throughout. Cascade had to battle back from a 21-point, third quarter deficit against Oldenburg Academy to pull out the win, something coach Don Helmick said may have contributed to the Cadets’ slow start against Mitchell.

“Not making excuses but after coming back and exerting so much energy to get the first win and then they lay around all day then come back, I knew our legs would be shot at the end of it,” Helmick said. “They hit free throws and we didn’t and maybe that’s why we didn’t hit our free throws as we were short on a lot.”

Mitchell went 28 of 33 from the line and Cascade hit 11 of 28.

Foul trouble also hindered Cascade’s efforts down the stretch as Mallorie Smith, Sydney Stein, Roxanna Gaddis and Audra Smallwood all fouled out, leaving Cascade with four players on the floor in the closing seconds.

Stein finished with a team-high 13 points and 12 rebounds to lead the Cadets, but each came with a physical toll.

“(Mitchell) had three girls to body Sydney and give her a beating and they had three girls that could do that,” Helmick said. “When you have enough girls to do that, that’s the way to go.”
