Four players scored in double figures as the Sulphur Springs Lady Cats took a 65-36 home win Friday over Clarksville.
Desi Debase topped the Lady Cats with 22 points and four steals; Kasey Moore had a double-double with 18 points, 12 rebounds; Shakoja Debase scored a dozen with two boards; Destiny Wade had 11 points and seven rebounds in the one-sided win.
Sulphur Springs bolted to a 22-6 lead after the end of one quarter and controlled the game.
“We came out and played well in the first quarter. We were scoring well and cutting off the shots Clarksville was trying,” said Jeff Chapman, Sulphur Springs head girls basketball coach. “We played better and we are getting more consistent in our half court offense.”
Chapman said, “To have four players in double figures is good. We have been trying to get more balanced scoring. We are starting to get a little smoother on offense.”
Chapman pointed out that Moore had a good game.
“Kasey had a good game, it was good to see her score that well,” Chapman said. “She has been a good rebounder and passer. Destiny Wade had a good game in the low post. I think everyone had an improved game. Clarksville started in a man-to-man defense and went to a 2-3 zone. We handled it. We were able to use nine players.”
Holding the Clarksville squad to 36 points also pleased the coach.
“We played very well at the start, just giving up six points,” Chapman said. “But did not have the same intensity for the whole game. Our defense had some ebb and flow to it. We didn’t get out to contest some shots late in the game that we defensed in the first quarter. But we are improving.”
The Lady Cats are now 3-0 for the year.
