Oak Hill had their best defensive performance of the season Thursday night, shutting down visiting Carroll Academy 55-9.
The Lady Raiders conceded just one basket in the second half, and shut out the Lady Rebels twice, in the first and third quarter.
Oak Hill, who have won six a row since their season opening loss, not only defended well, but controlled the glass with 46 rebounds for the ball game, mostly on offense.
“We just dominated the rebounding,” head coach Stan Hughey said. “It would have been more than that, but they turned the ball over a lot.”
Shay Atkins had her first double-double of the year with 16 points and 17 rebounds while Tori Ellis once again, led the team in scoring with 19.
Hughey said the girls were more fundamental in the game after working on a few things in practice this week.
“We did a much better job of seeing the basketball and helping each other out,” he said. “They were setting up screens on us and we did a good job calling them getting over the top.”
The junior high girls were also victorious, 46-15. Oak Hill scored 24 points in the first quarter, and never looked back holding the visitors to just six points in the second half.View more articles in:
