Tribe pressures Kats into submission

ANDERSON — The pressure defense of the Anderson Lady Tribe made life difficulty all evening for Kokomo as the Indians dispatched of the Wildkats 63-32 here Friday night.

The win was the 10th straight for the home team, which ran its record to 15-3 and 4-1 in the North Central Conference.

Kokomo had 10 turnovers in the first quarter to trail 18-5 at the first break. The Wildkats had at least five miscues in every quarter after that. Even when they did get into position for shots, many of them were rushed efforts, causing the visitors to hit just 11-of-43 field goals.

Anderson used a variety of defensive pressure, full and half court to keep Kokomo off-balance and uncomfortable.

The Tribe spread the offense around as seniors Samia Carter and Chelsea Bentley delivered the ball in spots where their teammates could covert the passes into points. Five players had at least eight points.

Da'Sha Boyd topped both teams with 15 points for the Indians. She hit half of her 12 shots. Bentley and Dabriona Williams each scored 13 points, each of them also shooting a dozen times.

Anderson lost the rebound battle 38-34 but Williams did her part in the fight, getting nine boards.

If there was any fault in the Tribe's performance it was free throw shooting where they netted just 6-of-16 from the line.

Kokomo put no players in double figures in scoring. Coming close was sophomore Allie Lowe, who scored nine, but she had to take more than a quarter of her team's total shots to get four to fall. She also topped her team with eight rebounds.

Anderson only has one NCC contest remaining, a trip to Marion on Monday. If the Indians can win that contest they keep alive hopes of at least sharing the league crown. Logansport is 3-0 on the season and still has three conference road trips remaining to Richmond, Muncie Central and Huntington North.

The next home game for the Tribe is Tuesday against Taylor (4-14)
