Prep girls basketball roundup: Okemos defeats St. Johns, 51-39

By

OKEMOS

Junior Elle Nichols led Okemos with 14 points, including two 3-pointers, as the Chiefs beat St. Johns 51-39 in the season opener for both teams.

Okemos held a one point lead at half before opening up the second half on a 10-0 run to create some separation as the Chies outscored the Redwings 25-13 in the third quarter.

“I think that was a big difference,” Okemos coach Tyler Hursey said. “We got a little more aggressive in our full court press and that helped us score some buckets.”

Senior Erica Tooker added 12 points for the Chiefs as seven different Okemos players scored.

“I think for us to be successful that’s what we’re going to have,” Hursey said. “We’re going to have to have a lot of different kids ready to score on any night depending on who’s open and I think that will be a strength of this team.”

Junior guard Tori Henning led St. Johns with 14 points.

Junior Kristelle Yewah finished with seven points, 10 rebounds and five assists for the Chiefs.
