“We always want to take advantage of what the defense gives us,” Cook said. “We are working on (driving the lane) a lot. When you have girls knocking down shots, that opens the lane.”
As the offense ramped up its second-quarter production, the defense clamped down and held the Trojans to just 10 points on 2-of-14 shooting.
For much of the game, Anderson’s offense ran through Carter. The 5-foot-2 senior guard was credited with seven of the Indians’ 21 assists.
“Since she is so quick and fast paced, it gets the defense off their feet,” Boyd said. “It helps a lot when she drives and kicks it out to us.”
Carter also dropped in six points.
“You saw skill in what we were doing out there in spreading it out,” Cook said. “We did a lot better executing today, but we still have a long way to go.”
