Prep girls basketball roundup: Portland stays perfect in CAAC White

By

Portland remained unbeaten in CAAC White girls basketball play with a somewhat deceiving 59-39 win at Lansing Catholic Friday night.

The Raiders (11-3 overall, 6-0 CAAC White) finished the third quarter on a 9-0 run, and made their free throws down the stretch in an otherwise tight game.

“I’m proud of the way they played tonight,” Cougars coach Joe Springer said. “I thought it was anybody’s game. The first game was a runaway for them, and we hung in there (tonight). We didn’t put the shots in that we needed to put in, and I think that was the difference.”

Maddie King led all scorers with 16 points, Kelsey Spitzley had 13 and Allison Russell added 11 for the Raiders, the 9th-ranked team in Class B.

“Because of the consistent success that we’ve had, we get everybody’s best shot,” Portland coach Ray Kimball said. “We took their best shot, we had a lead at halftime, opened it up in the third and finished it in the fourth, and that’s what good teams do.”

AnneMarie Fata and Kasey Jacobs each had 10 points to lead Lansing Catholic (3-10, 1-5), who cut a 6-point halftime deficit in half, 31-28 halfway through the third quarter, before 3-pointers from Russell and Ariel Davids capped off a 9-0 run that gave Portland a 40-28 lead going into the fourth.

Fata stole the ball and went coast-to-coast to make the score 49-39 with 2:44 left, but those would be the last Lansing Catholic points of the game, and the Cougars were forced to foul.

Portland made 10 straight free throws before missing one, including a personal 6-0 run from the free-throw line by Madison Adams, who calmly converted both ends of two 1-and-1 opportunities and two more after an intentional foul call in the span of 21 seconds to finally seal the win.

Kimball said that he liked his chances with Adams at the line.

“She’s a tough kid, and she’s used to being successful,” Kimball said. “I was confident all the way, and I don’t think she hit the rim on any of them.”

In all, Portland hit 11 of their 13 free throws in the final 3:17 of the game and, as odd as it may sound, left with a scrappy 20-point win.

“That’s what our kids do, they compete and they scrap,” Kimball said. “They were more disappointed in themselves for missing a few assignments and getting to a few less loose balls than they normally do, but I’m proud of them. They work hard, and were confident the whole way.”
