Lady Tribe soars in opener

INDIANAPOLIS — Expectations are soaring for the Anderson girls basketball team, as it returns the team’s leaders in assists, scoring and rebounds.

“We defintely have really high expectations,” Lady Tribe coach Chad Cook said. “With those core girls back, we feel like we are building on a good base. We are excited about what we have in front of us.”

Anderson put together a strong second quarter in its season opener Saturday, scoring 25 points to pull away from Bishop Chatard and secure an 81-63 victory.

Building off an 8-3 run to close the first quarter, junior Ania Daniels knocked down a 3-pointer to open the second quarter. It went back-and-forth through the middle part of the second until Samia Carter rolled in a layup to spark a game changing 16-4 run with 4:13 left in the half.

“That was a good burst for us there,” Cook said. “We seemed to be hitting on all cylinders. We are capable of doing that a lot.”

Anderson also played a more physical game than Chatard during the second quarter.

Chartard’s Maureen Brogam got a defensive rebound, which was quickly ripped from her hands by Daniels. She dished it to Da’Sha Boyd who was fouled and made the subsequent free throws to give the Lady Tribe a 26-17 lead.

Boyd led the Lady Tribe with 25 points. She excelled at the line going a perfect 9-for-9.

“We had a lot of openings because they were so far spread out,” Boyd said of the Lady Tribe's success driving the lane. “With our different offenses we were running, it caused them to go out more. We had a chance to take it in when we needed to.”

She also said that after the successful drives, the Chatard defense began to collapse in to seal off the lane, which led to opening up the outside shot.
