FBC Defenders (Frederick) Defeat OC Elite for third straight win in the Tom Dowd Memorial Tournament

Though they came out a little slow to start, the FBC Defenders (Frederick) picked up the pace as the game continued in their third match-up of the Tom Dowd Memorial Tournament.  Several turnovers, and a lack of foul calls, contributed to them being behind 12-16 after 6 minutes of play.  A steal and a basket by Shalette brought the Defenders ahead 17 to 15 and the team kept the momentum going after that spark.  Nay Nay grabbed a rebound after a missed foul shot and put it back up for 2!  Nina grabbed another rebound and put that back for 2 more.  Brittany had a steal and went coast to coast for 2, then grabbed a 2nd steal and scored 2 off of that as well.  All this in the closing minutes of the first half, with the Defenders leading by 28 to 16.

The Defenders came out a little flat at the start of the 2nd half, but picked it up again as Walker had a long pass ahead to Jackie who scored a basket.  The offense continued to be very balanced, with contributions from Aliyah, Nicole, Parris, and Karalyne to name a few.  They had a strong finish to close out the game 54 to 24.

High Scorer for the game was Shalette with 9.  Karalyne dominated the boards with 5 rebounds and Aliyah owned the paint with 2 blocked shocks.  In a true team effort, the assists were tied at 1 among 5 or so players.
