Lady Lakers get past Pulaski County
In Feb. 4 Issue
By Derek Aaron
Times Journal Sports Editor

The 13-7 Lady Laker hoops team picked up another road win last Tuesday night as they traveled to Pulaski County to take on the Lady Maroons.

Russell County came away with a 71-63 victory in what Lady Laker coach Craig Pippen called a “foul fest.”

“Pulaski County likes to keep the tempo up and down the floor and they put teams on the line a lot,” said Pippen following the game.

“They play very physical and are much improved from last year. We knew we had to take care of the ball and establish a transition game early.”

Pippen said his team's guards executed their game plan very well.

“We did a nice job dribbling and passing out of their traps and created a lot of points off our transition break,” he said.

“Rachael Miller played an outstanding game for us scoring 21 points with six assists and shooting 11 for 13 at the free throw line. She definitely brought her 'A' game tonight and she makes our team so much better when she plays with confidence and attacks the rim.”

The game remained close until the middle of the 4th quarter when Russell County stepped up their defense and had some key defensive stops.

“We capitalized on some of their defensive break downs and our free throws made the difference down the stretch,” he said.

The Lady Laker coach said he was also pleased with freshman point guard LeeAnn Grider, who scored 18 points and had five assists, and her ability to push the ball up the floor in transition.

Junior forward Lindsay Ramage also had a huge game for the Lady Lakers with 15 points and 12 rebounds, yet another double-double.

“This was a good win on the road in a tough place to play,” Pippen said.

“The referees let it get extremely physical but that is good for us. We need to continue to get stronger and tougher as we get closer to the district tournament.”
