Susan Wagner 46 Poly Prep 40
SW was led by junior Kanayah Britt's 16 points. Sophomore Casey Caroccia chipped in with 9 pts. off the bench.
"This game was everything we imagined it would be. Nayah hit some key free throws when we needed them most. As stellar as Kanayah was, it was our team defense that made the difference.
We knew we had to contain Shanniah Wright (Georgetown's Div. 1 signee). She's an unstoppable force in the paint who we knew would create a mismatch nightmare for our team. The combination of Clare, Denise, and Heather played a key role in containing her. I'm proud of how they banged with her and matched her physical tenacity. Our guards were also terrific closing out on Poly's shooters. Give credit to Poly Prep. They a very good team. Every time we created space with a double digit lead, they'd answer with a huge three. We just did all the little things today. It's those little things that dont show up in the box score that put us up on top in the end. It's another huge step in the right direction for our program."
