FBC Defenders (Stone) Win First Game in Metro Classic 51-40 Against NY Silver Bullets

The game tipped off at 9:45 AM and Ashanti went down the court for a basket.  We had a  good start as Ashanti got fouled on another drive, and made 2 of 2, followed by Shalette being fouled in the paint, and going 2 for 2.  Tia scored under the basket for 2 on an inbound play from Walker and before you know it, we were up 8-1.  Shalette had an assist to Tia under the basket for 2, and Ashanti was fouled on a drive and hit 1 of 2.  We were now ahead 11-3.  It’s a good thing that we built an early lead, since the Silver Bullets then  scored 7 unanswered points to bring it neck at neck at 11-10.  We started the turnaround on defense as Shalette forced a turnover out of bounds.  Next, Janissa hit a 3 on a smart kickout from Tia.  Shalette score another 2 in the paint, then a steal from Ashante, 2 on 1 down the floor, dish off to Walker for 2.  More intense defensive plays including a strong rebound by Jenean and we moved ahead to 21-11.  A steal by Walker, a dash down the court, and 2 to bring us to 23-13 to close out the half.

The second half opened with “the suprise from outside” with a 3-pointer from Shalette in the corner.  Shalette then put up another shot, got her own rebound, put it back up, got the foul and went 2 for 2.  Not to be outdone on defense, Shalette then had 2 blocks in a row, and threw the ball off the opponents legs to save an out of bounds play.  Janissa pulled down a rebound, went up and got fouled and made 2 of 2.  Jenean grabbed an offensive rebound, put it back up and got the foul.  More defensive work from Jenean forced a travel and turnover on the Bullets.   Shari got a steal, dashed down the court, and passed off to Jenean who was fouled, and made of 2 of 2.  We had some good ball movement and then Walker hit for 3.   The game was getting uncomfortably close at 33-26.  Thankfully, we had some good foul shooting down the stretch, and some timely jumpers from Janissa and Walker.  We secured the win with the final score of 51-40.

High Scorer – Shalette with 16.  High Rebounder – Shalette with 12.  High Blocks – Shalette with 3.  Assists – Ashanti with 3.
