Lady Tribe run over NCC foe Richmond

ANDERSON — The smile on Anderson girls basketball coach Chad Cook's face was big enough to be seen across the court.

The idea in basketball is to get the easiest shots possible and to force the opponent into the most difficult shots imaginable.

The Lady Tribe had both ends of that equation working to near perfection Saturday afternoon as they hammered North Central Conference foe Richmond 84-33.

The Red Devils had...well...a devil of a time getting the ball in position for a good shot and in getting those shots to fall. They hit 21 percent of their shots, getting just 10 field goals to srop to contrast with 21 turnovers.

The Indians, by contrast, hit 66 percent of their shots. They hit 38 field goals and missed just 20..

Anderson spread the wealth, with six players scoring eight or more points, topped by 19 from Ania Daniels. Daniels had missed starting a couple of games due to illness but this time she made the opposition sick. Almost everything that left her hand ended up in the net as she hit 9-of-11 from the field.

"She's very efficient," said Cook in a classic understated compliment. "She was knocking down those short jumpers."

Daniels got those inside shots because the offense was running at such a high level. Nearly every time down the court Anderson was taking its time and making that extra pass. Very few times did it settle for just any shot.

"We were very unselfish," said Cook. "I had been talking to them that they were good enough to be patient."

Chelsea Bentley and Da'Sha Boyd each scored 14 points. Dabriona Williams and Kez'Anique Gosha each contributed 10 and Shantez Goolsby chipped in with eight.

Defensively, the Lady Tribe showed a different side as well. Instead of applying full-court pressure and not allowing the foe to breathe, they played half-court defense with quickness and intelligence. Richmond freshman Destiny Perkins had a game she will love to forget. She had regularly been scoring over 20 points for the Devils. This time she had six, hitting 1-of-14 from the field.
