John Glenn head coach Brian Fulks likes what he is seeing from his basketball team.
The Muskies saw nine players score and used full-court defensive pressure to post a 53-26 victory against host Coshocton at The Wigwam.
“The season got off to a bit of a rough start, but I really like what we have been doing the past three games,” Fulks said. “We are getting contributions from everyone and it seems like every night it is someone else stepping up at the offense end.”
On Monday, it was junior Haley Crawford who scored 12 of her 14 points in the first half .
“We are really playing together as a team right now,” Fulks said. “The girls don’t care who is the one scoring the points as long as it leads to a victory.”
Both teams got off to a slow start at the offensive end as the visitors led 8-5 at the first stoppage.
In the second quarter, John Glenn picked up the defensive pressure, and took a 25-10 lead at halftime.
“I thought they played harder than us and, when they picked up the defense, we just didn’t handle the pressure,” Coshocton coach Paul Bowman said. “We need some girls to step up and help handle the basketball.”
John Glenn (3-3) forced 12 turnovers in the second quarter and 10 more in the third quarter as the lead ballooned to 42-17 .
Crawford added 10 rebounds to go with her 14 points, while Lauren Dolick added eight points and Tyler Bonner and Moriah Carson each added seven.
Coshocton was paced by Kasey Means, who had 19 points and seven rebounds. Katie Tupper chipped in eight rebounds for the Redskins.
“Kasey did her thing tonight but we need other girls to step up and help,” Bowman said.
“We will get back to work and try and get a win on Wednesday.”
Tyler Bonner and Saydee Baughman each scored 10 points as John Glenn posted a 49-24 victory in the junior varsity game. Lexie Phillips had eight points for the Redskins.
