Tigers sweep Warriors in doubleheader

(Continued)

LEBANON —

Danville finally got on the board with 4:01 left in the quarter on a

basket by Cami Collins.

The Tigers eventually led by 16 at the quarter and 30 at the half.

“They did the things that we told our team we couldn’t do,” Danville

coach Terry Hammons said. “They penetrated with the basketball and when they shot and missed, we didn’t block out. Blocking out has not been good for us this year and Lebanon exposed us. It gave them lots of momentum and we got caught with that deer in the headlights look.”

Lebanon led by as many as 42 in the second half.

The only question that remained was whether or not Danville would score as many points as Curtis — who finished with 28.

The Warriors broke the 28-point barrier with a 3-pointer by Allie Lake with 1:00 left.

Lebanon forced 25 turnovers and allowed only 10 Danville field goals.

“For us, the way our defense goes is the way our offense is going to go,” DeVinney said. “If we have to get into a half-court game there is so much more that goes into it. You have to have all pieces to the puzzle. It is great to have a big post, which we don’t have. So we have to make sure that we play our defense for 32 minutes because we are going to get some offense out of that. That is what we focused on.”

Hannah Newby led Danville with six points and Chelsea Gould had five for the Warriors, who fell to 6-3 on the season.

They play again Friday against Speedway.

“I really and truly think that although we were disappointed and it stung us a bit, that we will come out of the locker room using it as a learning experience,” Hammons said. “We have to learn from it watch the game tape and say this is why we have to do certain things.”
