Lady Lakers beat Taylor, 37-36

In Feb. 7-13 Issue

By Derek Aaron, Times Journal Sports Editor

Coach Craig Pippen’s Lady Lakers won by a single point in last Friday’s home game against the Lady Cardinals of Taylor County, 37-36.

Both Michelle Copley and Ashly Franklin had 10 points for Russell County with Copley hitting a key three point basket as time winded down.

“It was obviously a big win for us at home against Taylor County,” Pippen said.

“The girls did a good job coming out and executing their gameplan.”

“Our main goal was to not do a lot of fouling, we need to learn to play good pressure-man defense without fouling because we didn’t want to send them to the line because they’re an extremely good free throw shooting team.”

Pippen said his team played very good defense against penetration and did a much better job blocking out the Lady Cardinals and rebounding.

“Offensively, we are improving nightly,” he said. “Our main concern is still taking care of the basketball and our turnovers are dropping.”

Pippen also said his team was beginning to play with more maturity.

“LeeAnn Grider continues to come in and shine and is doing some great things for a 7th grader,” he said. “She’s doing some things that some sophomores and juniors have a hard time doing.”

Pippen lauded the play of his seniors, Franklin and Copley.

“Ashly had a good game and Michelle hit a key bucket near the end of the game,” he said.

Pippen did say he was still concerned about the team’s free throw shooting and that he would continue to focus on that in practice each day.

Despite what happens the rest of the way, Pippen said his team has a lock on the #2 or #3 seed in the district tournament.

“We would like to at least have an opportunity to split with Metcalfe (on Friday) and maybe force a 2-3 seed tiebreaker,” he said.

Both Copley and Franklin had 10 points each while Lindsay Ramage scored nine points.

Kim Pierce scored four points for the Lady Lakers while Rachael Miller and LeeAnn Grider had two apiece.

Pippen said his team’s goal from the beginning of the season was to make it to the region, and winning two games in district tournament play would do so.
