Prep girls hoops roundup: Last-second shot gives Okemos win

By

HOLT

Katie Dudley only scored one basket, but it proved to be the game’s most important one. Her putback with 1.4 seconds remaining gave Okemos a 58-56 victory over Holt on Friday.

For Dudley it was all about being in the right place at the right time, as the ball came right to her underneath the basket after a missed shot.

“I wasn’t thinking about it,” Dudley said. ” I just knew to get the rebound and put it back in. It was just so exciting when it went in.”

The shot capped a thrilling final minute in the game. A 3-pointer by Elle Nichols gave Okemos a 54-51 lead with 1:05 remaining. But Holt answered right away, as Tara Lierman drained a 3-pointer of her own

Two free throws from Okemos’ Kristell Yewah gave the team a 56-54 lead, but Holt once again responded. This time it was Emma Sluiter connecting on a jumper to tie the game again.

But then Okemos put the game away on Dudley’s layup. Coincidentally, Dudley wasn’t even in the game for her offense.

“When I put her in, it was for defense,” said Okemos coach Tyler Hursey. “I just stayed out of their way on that last play. Katie was heads up enough to get on the block and get a rebound.”

Prior to the game-winner, the shot of the night came at the end of the first quarter when Holt’s Lierman launched a 30-footer as time expired that was good.

The long 3-pointer was part of a strong start for the Rams, as they hit the halftime break up 26-19.

But Okemos came out strong after the break and made it a game. By the end of the evening, the Chiefs were in position to get a win.

“Our girls kept fighting the whole game, and I really like that from this team,” Hursey said.

Nichols led the comeback with 18 points for the Chiefs. In a losing effort, Lierman finished with 16 points for the Rams.

Okemos will look to build on the momentum of its thrilling victory when it faces off against Eastern on Tuesday.

DEWITT 55, ST. JOHNS 45

ST. JOHNS – DeWitt used three big runs to beat St. Johns 55-45 on Friday in a CAAC Red contest.

The Panthers opened the game on a 10-2 run to immediately put the Redwings in trouble. St. Johns was able to claw back in the game, getting to within five points at 33-28 in the third quarter.

Then sophomore Claudia Reid hit a 3-pointer and junior Hannah Stoll had a basket plus a free-throw to bump the lead back up to 11 points at 39-28.

A 3-pointer by junior Tori Henning brought the Redwings to within six at 41-35, but the Panthers ripped off another 10-2 run to distance themselves once again.

“It never felt real comfortable until the end,” DeWitt coach Bill McCullen said. “Very rarely does either one of us win a game by more than single digits against one another and it’s gone back and forth. Last year’s games were classics and so we knew coming over here this was going to be a really tough game on the road.”

“We’d go on a run and they would come up with a big play or get a couple stops on us and we’d miss a rebound, miss a defensive assignment, they’d make us pay and all of a sudden two points turned into six and it was back to 11 or 13,” St. Johns coach Mark Lasceski said. “That’s the way the game went the whole way. We just could not get over the hump and they’re a good team.”

DeWitt was able to get back on track after a 21-point non-league loss on Tuesday to East Lansing.

“I was just proud of the way that the girls bounced back. Tuesday night was a tough night for us and we’re trying to re-establish ourselves here,” McCullen said.

Stoll led DeWitt with 17 points while Reid added 13 points for the Panthers. Junior Bailey Weber led St. Johns with 12 points.
