Lions get defensive with SaberCats Southmoore girls roll past Moore

(Continued)

MOORE —

Southmoore stormed back into the game using the outside shooting of Preston Smith and Jon Arvin. The ‘Cats closed the gap to 29-24 at halftime.

With Powell no longer on their team, the SaberCats didn’t have the post-up game they had fed off of just when it sprinted out to a 3-1 record. They were forced to rely on long jumpshots and drives to the rim, where they were met by the shot-blocking Gigger.

Moore took advantage of the one-dimensional ‘Cats in the third as they went on a 16-5 run and went on to lead by 16 heading into the fourth quarter. The ‘Cats never got any closer.

Smith led the ‘Cats with 14 points. Chelvin Webb added nine.

Dante Butler came off the Moore bench to score 15, and Dezmine Neal chipped in with 12.

Despite the impressive performance against the ‘Cats, Gigger is looking forward to seeing how the Lions look when Davenport is healthy and Powell is cleared to play.

“I’m excited because I think we are going to be a lot better team,” Gigger said. “We just have to get it the right way. Get our chemistry right. That’s the main thing. We just have to accept our roles and play the right way.”

Southmoore girls 87, Moore 19: The SaberCats jumped out early to a 19-3 advantage in the first quarter. They kept the pressure on the rest of the night and never let the Lions get into the game.

Four players scored in double figures as they moved to 7-1 on the season. Serithia Hawkins poured in 24 points to lead the way. Senior Kayla Tucker added 16.

Caitlin Hall and Kaylea Massey scored five points each for the Lions, who fell to 1-8 on the season.
