Lady Hatchets blast past South Knox

VINCENNES – The Washington girls’ basketball team needed a few minutes to wake up, but after that, it was smooth sailing.

Washington (1-0) defeated South Knox 61-25 Tuesday night in the season opener at South Knox.

The Spartans jumped out to a quick 6-2 lead, but a near 3-point play from forward Cheynne Jones seemed to spark the Hatchet offensive attack. Washington outscored South Knox 8-0 the rest of the quarter to take a 12-6 lead into the second quarter.

“We talked about at the beginning of the game that this entire game of basketball can’t be played in the first 30 seconds,” said Washington coach Gretchen Miles. “Give South Knox some credit, they knocked down some shots early and that built some confidence and defensively we had to make the adjustment of not letting them get a set shot. When we started getting out in the passing lanes more and run the floor well we got some easy baskets in transition and that helped us turn the corner of momentum.”

In the second quarter, Washington flexed its collective muscles by outscoring the Spartans 24-6 in the eight minute stretch.

Washington senior Ally Hunsinger scored 10 of her game-high 19 points in the quarter, which saw the Hatchets take a 36-12 advantage into halftime.

“She (Hunsinger) did a great job of finding her rhythm and finding shots,” Miles said. “We always tell our shooters, you have to ignore all the misses and shoot like you’ve never missed and that’s the mentality she has. She missed a few shots early, but she’s not afraid to get herself back in that position to knock down shots. Every year that she goes through the system, she has become more mature about the game of basketball.”

In the third quarter, the Spartans got more of the same from the visiting Hatchets. Washington outscored the Spartans 17-8 in the third behind six points from Lupe Perez. Washington finished out the final quarter by getting some much needed time for its younger players as they won the fourth quarter 8-5.
