NW, Western post girls BB victories

No. 2 Western girls cruise to 8-0 record.

Northwestern’s girls basketball team roared back in the second half to top Taylor 44-40 Friday night in the opening game of a girls-boys doubleheader at Center Court.

The Purple Tigers were down 21-13 at halftime after a poor-shooting first half that saw them hit 5 of 27 shots. The Tigers revved up the pressure defense in the third quarter, getting three transition hoops in the opening couple minutes before getting all the way back on a 3-pointer from Olivia McClure tied the game at 24-all.

Tiger center Brooke Treadway posted intently in the third quarter and scored a dozen points in the frame to help the Tigers take a 38-33 lead.

With the game tied at 27-all, Northwestern went up 34-27 on a seven-point possession. Treadway posted, sealed her defender and spun in for a hoop, got fouled, and Taylor’s Brie Boehler was called for a technical as well. Treadway hit her freebie and both technical free throws, and teammate Kaitlyn Daanen hit two free throws on the ensuing possession. Northwestern held the lead the rest of the game.

“We came out with a lot more intensity [after halftime] than what we started the game with,” NW coach Kathie Layden said. “The third quarter our press really helped get some baskets, get a little momentum.”

Treadway had a game-high 20 points and a dozen rebounds. Daanen had 18 rebounds including seven offensive caroms as the Tigers outrebounded Taylor 45-26. Daanen, Sydney Zech and Olivia McClure each had six points.

Boehler led Taylor with 11 points, but sat a stretch of the second half after the foul and technical gave her a total of four fouls. She didn’t score again after notching her fourth foul. Kaitlynn Good had nine points off the bench for Taylor, all on treys.

Taylor coach Dennis Bentzler said Treadway’s efficient shooting “was kind of the dagger in the heart.”

It was easy to tell as a red rash covered her arms and her face was painfully swollen. She is one of those people who loves being outdoors yet highly allergic to the common plant. Sometimes I believe she can get the rash by simply looking at the noxious weed.
