The Sherman Huskies jumped off the deck from a lopsided loss to Weston-McEwen on Saturday with a dominant inside presence posting a 34-10 rebounding edge in a 38-31 victory over Stanfield Tuesday in girl’s basketball play in Moro.
After starting slow with a 14-5 deficit through one quarter of action, the Huskies slowly began to impose their will on the Lady Tigers.
Sherman outscored Stanfield 9-7 in the second frame, as senior point guard Andi Harrison drilled a late 3-pointer to help her squad get to within a seven-point window, 21-14, at the half.
The Huskies added an 8-4 split in the third period to make it a 25-22 entering the final quarter.
In the finale, Sherman had everything working for itself in the scoring column to aid in a 16-6 spurt to close out the Tigers.
“In the third (quarter), we kept scrambling and played better team defense,” Kaseberg said. “In the fourth, it all clicked and we got the stops on defense, held them to only one shot, got into our transition and got a much deserved win.”
Meagan McKinney scored 10 points, Katie Poirier checked in with 10 points and seven boards, and Janet Guzman had seven points and five rebounds.
Not only was Harrison a stout ball distributor, getting passes to the right people and places, but she pulled down a team-high eight rebounds.
“Harrison did a better job of getting teammates the ball in the right spots, especially in the second half,” Kaseberg said. “Everyone that played gave us a lift off of the bench. We are taking baby-steps in improving day-by-day.”
Sherman (2-1 overall) heads out to Trout Lake for another tough basketball matchup at 6 p.m. Friday.
