Things don’t get any easier for NHS, with top-ranked Edmond Memorial coming to town on Friday.
Norman North girls 64, Moore 47: Norman North cruised to a big win Tuesday night behind a balanced effort and a big advantage on the boards. The T-Wolves out-rebounded Moore 33-19 in a blowout victory over Moore that wasn’t as close as the final score.
Bri Kuestersteffen led a group effort from the T-Wolves with 17 points and five assists, and it was her passing that opened the game up early. North fed Julian Mougell inside where she was able to finish enough plays to force Moore to collapse. That opened up the outside for the shooters, and along with North’s full-court press allowed the T-Wolves to build up a sizable lead.
“”We played a great first half, and it was a total team effort,” coach Jeff Blough said. “We shared the ball really well tonight.”
Blough was especially impressed with the way sophomore guard Paige Canty, who finished with 10 points and a pair of assists.
“She’s come leaps and bounds just from last weekend,” he said. “She was aggressive, she attacked the rim and competed the entire game.”
Caitlyn Hall led Moore with 16 points, while Amanda Patterson added 14 points and five assists.
