Lady Lakers defeat Campbellsville, 57-46

In Jan. 31-Feb. 6 issue

Times Journal Sports Editor


Coach Craig Pippen’s Lady Lakers (8-12, 2-3 in District play) got another significant road victory last Friday over the Lady Eagles of Campbellsville, 57-46.

Russell County hit nearly half of their field goals, shooting 22 of 50 from the field while also hitting nine of 19 free throws.

The Lady Lakers played a great all-around game with 16 team assists, 16 team steals and 26 team rebounds to go against only 10 turnovers.

“I think we came ready to play,” Pippen said. “We did some nice things offensively such as finding the open player and making better decisions with the ball.” 

Pippen said the 10 turnovers his team had was the first time this year Russell County has had more assists than turnovers. “I am pleased with that stat,” he said. 

“Ashly Franklin did a nice job inside and LeeAnn Grider shot the ball well for us from the perimeter,” Pippen said. “Michelle Copley and Kim Pierce are gaining confidence as shooters and Blair Hoover is beginning to improve and taking full advantage of the minutes she is receiving.”

He said LeeAnn Grider and Rachael Miller are sharing minutes at the point guard spot.  “Both are extremely team-oriented so that has not been a problem at all,” he said.

The Lady Lakers were led in scoring by Franklin with 21 points to go along with seven rebounds and four assists. Grider also scored double-digits with 11 points.

Both Michelle Copley and Lindsay Ramage had eight points each and combined for six rebounds. Kim Pierce had four points and three rebounds while Tyla Bailey had three points. Heather Burton also ended the game with a field foal for two points.

“We were able to play a lot of different line-ups and get our bench players some quality minutes,” Pippen said. “Defensively we still need a lot of improvement on our man defense.” 

He said his team will have several days to work on their defensive intensity and help defense. 

“Hopefully we can improve in this area as the season winds down and we draw closer to the District Tournament,” he said.

The Lady Lakers have a tough game this Friday night at home against Taylor County at 7:30 p.m. 

“They are a physical team and they shoot the ball well,” he said. “We have our work cut out for us.”
