FORT RECOVERY — One didn’t need to look far to find out who won the Jefferson at Fort Recovery girls basketball opener Friday night at Fort Site Fieldhouse.
Shooting told the entire story: the Lady Indians were 27-of-54 (4-of-8 from downtown) for 54 percent and the Lady Wildcats were a miserable 8-of-45 (0-of-10 long range) for 17.8 percent.
It all added up to a 62-25 blowout for the Tribe.
“I didn’t think we shot that well. It’s all about confidence right now and learning how to play at the varsity level; for many of these girls, it is the first time,” Jefferson mentor Dave Hoffman explained. “At times, we were tentative shooting the ball, like we didn’t want to shoot. Other times, we were too aggressive and fast. Going faster is not always the answer.”
