Sequoyah posts pair of wins over Cascia Hall

The Sequoyah girls basketball team dished out a 58-30 victory against Cascia Hall Friday night inside The Place Where They Play.

The Lady Indians led 15-3 after the first quarter and set the cruise control for the final 24 minutes of action in the blowout win over the Commandos. Lady Indians coach Larry Callison said he wished his team played with more intensity down the stretch despite the 28-point victory.

“We have the type of basketball team that will drive a coach crazy,” he said. “We’re very talented and we’ve played pretty well in big games, but we don’t give that effort and that competitiveness when we don’t play tough competition.

“I know people will say that we won big and I shouldn’t be griping, but I’m looking down the road. The playoffs are right around the corner, and we’re going to have to play against good teams night in and night out. We can’t play the way we did tonight and expect to win.”

Sequoyah shot 46 percent (23-for-50) from the field, 41.7 percent (5-for-12) from downtown and 46.7 percent (7-for-15) at the free-throw line. The Lady Indians were led in scoring by Jhonnett Cookson, who finished with a game-high 15 points. Audrey Ballou filled the stat sheet with 11 points, five rebounds, four assists, three blocks, and three steals in just 18 minutes. She was only 4-for-10 from the field, but she finished 3-for-4 from behind the arc.

Cascia Hall was limited to 24.4 percent (10-for-41) shooting overall, 28.6 percent (4-for-14) from downtown and 50 percent (6-for-12) from the line. Reagan Derr led the Commandos with 12 points, and Kennedy cox finished with 10.

Sequoyah held large advantages in rebounds (38-27), fewer turnovers (13-20), steals (16-8), points in the paint (24-10), points off turnovers (20-6), and second-chance points (19-2).

One omission from the lineup against Cascia Hall was Kelsey Leach. She earned the start at guard but played only seven minutes due to an ankle injury suffered against Keys on Tuesday, Callison said. She did not attempt a shot, but she was on the floor long enough to record two rebounds and a steal.

“When Kelsey is not running the show for us, we seem to get a little lost,” Callison said. “We didn’t play her much tonight because of the injury, and it showed with how we struggled running our offense.”
