The Lady Jags were able to a pull out a 55-36 win over the number one-ranked Lansing Lions on Tuesday, Jan. 16.

Although the Jags were able to win by 19 points, senior Adde Hinkle says the game still had some pivotal moments.

“The moment that our shots started falling was very important,” Hinkle said. “We were able to hold a lead of ten points or more once our shots began to fall.”

Junior Presley Barton agrees with Hinkle and said that the way the team effectively worked together is the reason that they were able to make so many shots.

“We all did a really good job of sharing the ball and being unselfish players,” Barton said. “It got us the better looks rather than the quickest open shot.”

As they worked together to score on the Lions, the Jags also had to defend the unique offense that Lansing approached with, according to Hinkle.

“Most teams put up a shot quicker than Lansing did,” Hinkle said. “They took their time time, which forced us to play good defense for longer than usual.”

Barton also said that defending against the Lions was the most difficult part of the game.

“The hardest part was making sure we talked on the defensive end and continued to work together to stop play after play,” Barton said.

Despite the fact that defending against Lansing was difficult, the Jags were eventually able to figure out their opponent’s strategy and use it to their advantage.

“Once we figured out how to react when Lansing pressed us, we were able to handle it very easily and get some quick and open buckets because of it,” Hinkle said.

The Jags will take the court again on Thursday, Jan. 18 at Washburn Rural High School.
