The Minden Lady Tiders celebrated Senior Night with a 70-31 win over The Northwood Lady Falcons Friday night at home.
"I thought for the most part we played pretty consistant for all four quarters," Lady Tider head coach Jacob Brown said. "It was a special night where we honored our seniors and all four were in the starting line-up and played well."
The lady Tiders led most of the way and turned in a dominating win.
"We played pretty well defensively and executed our offense when we needed to," Brown said. "We were able to get out in transition and played with a lot of energy on both ends of the court. I thought the girls really pushed each other to play well. I was proud that our seniors were able to get a win on their night, and I was glad that we could honor them with one as well."
The Lady Tiders jumped out on the Lady Falcons, 21-4, early.
"I thought we were able to get into our full court press and force them into tough situations," Brown said. "We were able to get some turnovers which led to some easy baskets for us. We rebounded well all night and that was a big plus."
The Lady Tiders struggled some in the second quarter, missing out on more than one opportunity to extend their lead even more, but still took a 31-12 lead into the locker room at halftime.
The Lady Tiders outscored the Lady falcons, 17-13 and 22-6 over the final two quarters to take the 70-31 win.
I thought we finished out well," Brown said. "We played hard and had a number of girls score, so it was a good night overall. One thing I would like for us to work on is our free throws. We work on them every day, but we have to get better before the playoffs start."
Antavia sterling led the Lady Tiders with 18 points and nine rebounds. Metosha Gill added 18 and four and Ja'Courtney Neloms scored 15 points. Marlena Hill had eight points and nine rebounds, and Marihica Sterling added four and five. Jaz goodman scored four, Delora McClendon had two and Brandi Cosby had one.
The Lady Tiders are now 15-10 on the year and 4-4 in district.
"We're tied for fourth right now with Benton," Brown said. 'We still have two games left, and that will go a long way in determining our power points, so we have to be motivated and bring our A-game."
