Lady Blues’ shooting woes continue against Decatur
Defense has not been a problem for the Lady Blues this season. Hitting shots and giving up points from the free-throw line continue to be the issues. While the fouls were cleaned up against 4A No. 7 Decatur Monday night, missing shots continue to plague the Lady Blues who fell to the Lady Eagles 36-27.
The Lady Blues fell behind early by giving up a 10-4 run. Katie Hale opened the game with a 3-pointer. Katie Coyac answered with a basket before seven straight from the Lady Eagles saw the Lady Blues trailing. After a basket from Hannah Isom, Lady Blues coach Ky Graham called the game’s first timeout with 3:26 remaining in the first.
After the 7-0 run from the Lady Eagles, the Lady Blues defense kicked into gear. The Lady Eagles were held to just two points, from the free-throw line for the remainder of the quarter. After an ill-timed shot to attempt to close the quarter, Rachel Grimsley grabbed the rebound to cut the deficit to four points as the quarter expired.
