good use of its height advantage in a
54-34 win over visiting West Bruns
wick last Thursday.
Six-footers Jessica Williams,
Ca the rife McKoy and Tericka
Grady combined for 44 of the Lady
Buccaneers' 54 points. Williams led
the charge with 17 points, McKoy
added 14 and Grady had 13.
Laney (4-0) pounded the ball in
side all night and scored many of its
points by grabbing offensive re
bounds over the shorter Lady
Trojans and getting multiple shots at
"I felt like we played hard, but we
got killed on the boards," West
Brunswick coach Brcnda Council
said. "We didn't block out and re
bound. They got four or five shots to
Donicia Moody led the Lady Tro
jans (1-2) with 15 points and Kan
eka Grissctt added seven.
Despite Laney 's height advan
tage, West Brunswick stayed even
early by taking its time on offense
and working for open shots.
The Lady Trojans took an 8-7
lead on Moody's layup with 2:53
left in the first quarter, but Laney
scored the next 14 points and led 21
8 with 4:41 left in the half.
McKoy scored eight straight
points during the 14-0 spurt and had
10 points in the second quarter.
West Brunswick, held to five
points in the second quarter, trailed
27-13 at halftime but opened the
second half with a 6-0 run. Moody's
two free throws with 6:45 left in the
third period cut Laney's lead to 27
The Lady Trojans never got clos
er, however, as Laney scored five
unanswered points and extended its
lead to 43-27 after three quarters.
Coach Sherri Tynes' Lady Buc
caneers scored the first eight points
of the final period to kill any hopes
of a West Brunswick comeback.
Coach Council said the Lady Tro
jans played better at Laney than they
did two nights earlier in a 78-30 loss
to Wilmington Hoggard.
"1 thought we played a lot better
tonight. We were a lot more patient
on offense, which I was glad to see,"
she said. "They were just getting the
ball into the low post at will."
West Brunswick was scheduled to
play Tuesday night at Hoggard. The
Lady Trojans will host North
ufiiuswick on Fiiu&y.
