Havelock boys use first-quarter outburst to beat White Oak

Published: Thursday, January 31, 2013 at 10:13 AM.

White Oak had a few possessions in the second and third quarters with the lead without much half-court pressure from the Rams, who were in zone. Ashdown was asked if she considered holding the ball for longer periods of times since her team struggled getting it inside.

“We definitely tried to manage the clock as best we could without having to mess up tempo,” she said. “Sometimes when you slow down for too long and get out of tempo, it turns into, ‘Oh, we need a basket. What do we do? We’ve been standing around holding the ball for so long.’

“Last game we played them, the pace was a little faster.”

Natalie Johnson and Dyer each scored 12 points for Havelock.
