Anderson girls run over Connersville

ANDERSON — It has been a motto for the Anderson Lady Tribe basketball team all season.

"We are good, trying to be great," said Anderson coach Chad Cook.

On Tuesday night, the Indians were as close to great as Connersville ever hopes to see as they bounced the Spartans 74-47. Anderson won for the eighth straight time, all coming since Jan. 3.

This win was special for the entire team as it was a bit of payback to the team that knocked Anderson out of the sectional a year ago.

"It was fresh on our minds," said Cook of the sectional loss. "It still stings. It's not going to go away. Last year they would have beat us maybe one time out of 10, and that was the one time. Hopefully, it will continue to be motivation for us going forward."

Connersville (10-7) will not only be a possible sectional foe again this year, but the Spartans are also the host of that part of the tournament.

Offensively, AHS got eight players into the scoring column and all eight got at least six points.

Da'Sha Boyd led the way for a very efficient Tribe offense. She scored 17 points and took just nine shots to do it. Dabriona Williams and Samia Carter were next with 11 points apiece.

Carter's scoring numbers don't do justice in measuring the impact she had in the game.

"The way (Carter) has been pushing the ball for us is phenomenal," said Cook. "Her assist-to-turnover ratio is close to 4-1."

Against the Spartans, she had nine assists compared to two turnovers.

While the Indians were sharing the ball and getting the entire team involved in the process, Connersville was a two-player performance. Taylor Stephen and Courtney Phillips scored all but 12 points for the Spartans and accounted for all but 10 of the team's rebounds.
