East Hardy was down by two points with under five minutes remaining, but wasn’t able to shake off the icicles on the rim as the Lady Tigers froze the court with a 60-48 triumph last Tuesday at Mt. Storm.
“We tried to switch up defenses, so she [Colleena Burdock] wouldn’t get comfortable,” East Hardy Coach Bridget Billmeyer remarked.
“She is a smart player, so she adjusts and we knew we had to make changes occasionally. We played triangle and two, diamond and one, and saggy man. We held to what she normally gets, but it was the kids that normally don’t make shots is what killed us tonight. We had seven turnovers and shot 80 percent from the free throw line, everything we did good and improved on tonight and still didn’t win the game. They had shots that fell and we didn’t. We let them get four offensive rebounds in a row and scored, if we shut them down there it could have been a different outcome.”
