1/17 GBB Brewster
Manson 20 – Brewster 72
Coach Toolson reports
Manson Trojans played the Brewster Bears on Tuesday night. Brewster is currently ranked 3rd in state and has one of the top players in the state in Chandler Smith. Needless to say, we knew we would have our hands full.
Brewster played an effective full court press the entire first half, which resulted in several turnovers on our part that led to easy baskets for them. We knew they would press and tried to prepare for it, but we have a hard time simulating their quickness and length in practice. When we were patient and moved the ball to the middle we did a good job breaking it, but at times we panicked and threw hurried passes that were intercepted.
We got on track in the 3rd quarter and outscored them 10-6 in the period. Our 1-3-1 trap resulted in some turnovers on their part and a few easy baskets for us. Unfortunately, we couldn't sustain that momentum the rest of the game and got outscored by 12 in the 4th quarter.
Brewster is a very good team and I thought we competed well and had some good moments to reflect on. The final score was 72-20.
Itzel Castro led the team in scoring with 8. Angelica Suarez and Cheyanne McFadden both chipped in 5 each. Sierra Miller scored the first basket of the game for 2 points.
