The Freshman Lady Tigers scored more points in the second quarter on Tuesday than visiting Hillsboro produced in the entire game, which paved the way for a huge win.
Glen Rose won its third game in a row by a 50-12 margin.
“I believe that’s our biggest (margin of victory) this season,” said coach Carrie Lytle. “The key was our solid shooting. Even though we were ahead in points, we were getting outrebounded and so that’s something to improve.”
Glen Rose took the first quarter 9-4 and then led 27-4 at halftime.
“The girls did a good job of pushing the ball down the court and keeping their eyes open for their teammates,” Lytle said.
Glen Rose maintained total control, winning the third (9-3) and the fourth (14-5) soundly.
Megan Bretton and Brenna Taylor each scored nine points to set the pace.
“Megan did a great job of driving to the hole,” Lytle said. “She has a nice touch on the ball and is showing consistency. Brenna does a nice job of keeping the ball high when she gets offensive rebounds and going back up with it.”
Bailey Brown and Dakotah Ponce each scored six.
“Bailey is improving, as far as seeing her teammates ahead in transition and getting them the ball,” the coach said. “Dakotah is coming along. She’s consistent about working on her moves and driving to the basket.”
Other scorers included Page Green (4), Amanda Jones (4), Sabrina Watson (4), Hailey Allen (2), Kensy Massey (2), Anna Douglas (2) and Mackenzie Morrison (2).
“Page did a nice job of hustling,” the coach said.
The Lady Tigers will return to action on Friday in Stephenville at 8 p.m.
“We need to keep working on cutting to the basket and blocking out when the shot goes up,” Lytle said. “The girls are doing really well, but we have to play much better on Friday against Stephenville.”
