Lady Bears first win

Last night the girls varsity basketball team won their home opener against Allen Park giving them their first win of the season. The game ended with a score of 33-21, making their overall record 1-2, with a league record of 1-0.
Allen Park scored the first point of the game with a free throw, but this was the only point in the game where they were ahead.
Wyandotte quickly got ahead with a layup by junior center Lillienn Corby.
“I think we hustled a lot in the beginning, like when they got breakaways we hurried up and stopped them,” Corby said. “I [personally] just tried to get big and get a lot of the rebounds.”
This game was the first league game of the season.
“I think the most important thing about this game was showing who we are as a team,” Hamilton said. “This will really set the pace for the season.”
Hamilton was the most influential offensive player of the game, scoring eleven of the thirty-three points for the team.
“My strongest aspect would probably be getting the rebounds and being strong on the offense,” Hamilton said. “Teamwork was also really good today...communication really helped us pull out the win tonight.”
Throughout the game, the Jags had chances to get ahead, but the Bear’s defense didn't allow them to take a lead.
“Defense is always our strong suit, and we always put in a lot of hard work,” senior captain and forward Katie Thorington said.
Hamilton agrees that the defense was the most important aspect of winning the game.
“I think this game was good to show our defense to the rest of the league because we have the best defense in the league,” Hamilton said.
According the Thorington, the team had film on AP that they watched the night before to prepare for the game.
The team works together well, which helped them get their first win of the young season.
“I think we’re already pretty close as a team, and we have some more team bondings coming up,” Thorington said. “I think if we keep working hard and as a team, we’ll come out on top and maybe win leagues or districts, which is always the goal.”
