Girls flattened by visiting Cavs
Published: Thursday, January 23rd, 2014
In a matchup that at times looked like a college team against a high school team, the buzz saw that is the No. 1 ranked St. Thomas More Cavaliers came to the Armory last Thursday evening and made quick work of the Custer High School girls basketball team.
The outcome of the game was never in doubt in More’s 82-21 win, as the Cavaliers did what they have been doing to teams all season—jumping out to an early lead and piling up points. The sheer size and execution of the Cavaliers was simply too much for Custer to handle.
“You go in hoping to elminate something, either inside or outside,”âï¿½ï¿½head coach Steph Ornelas said.âï¿½ï¿½“We were hoping to eliminate their inside game by playing a 2-3 zone. If their shooting was off, we would have a contest.”
Unfortunately, the shooting wasn’t off, as Cavaliers started the game with an 8-0 run before the Wildcats got on the board with a Jade Spring basket at the 4:45 mark of the first quarter. That was the last time the Wildcats would be within single digits in the game.
