Mavericks stampede the Castle

WELCH — After a delay of more than an hour when the referees didn't show and the subsequent drafting of three registered officials from McDowell County, the James Monroe Lady Mavericks used their height advantage to control the boards and their quickness and ball-hawking 3/4 court pressing defense to hand the host Mount View Lady Golden Knights a 46-29 setback last night at the Castle.

After Jordan Younger gave the View a short-lived 1-0 lead to start the game, the Lady Mav press helped their offense run off a dozen unanswered points and 14 of the next 17 to hold a 14-4 advantage after the initial eight minutes.

That lead went to 24-12 at intermission and 37-20 after three quarters.

Related James Monroe head coach Malory McPherson, "I thought we played really good defense."

Carter Shiflet and Jordan Page paced the Lady Mavs with 11 points apiece, while Kelsie Mann contributed 8.

Gezelle Brown led MV with nine, followed by Ashleigh Belfiore's eight and seven by Keisha Johnson.

Assessed Mount View head coach Yvonne Brown, "We didn't show up again.  That's two nights (straight), we just didn't show up."

JM, now 9-5, will host Bluefield next Tuesday, while the 7-5 Lady Knights entertain Valley Fayette Saturday evening at the Knights’ Castle.
