North girls hold off Westmoore

(Continued)

NORMAN —

What the Jaguars didn’t have was a player capable of getting shots or getting fouled when the offense broke down.

Though she missed shots in the game’s midsection, that’s what Kuestersteffen offers the T-Wolves. She finished a woeful 6 of 19 from the floor, but shot selection wasn’t a problem. Two of her makes were 3-pointers and she canned 8 of 11 at the free-throw line.

Blough remains more impressed with Kuestersteffen’s overall game, which has her defending the other team’s best player and leading North in scoring, assists and steals.

“She’s one of the best guards in the state, period,” Blough said. “Her game has changed so much from last year.”

North led 23-7 at the half but came out flat in the third quarter, allowing a 13-1 run from the Jaguars to begin the second half. Scott, just a freshman, stopped the run by stepping out to nail a 3-pointer and North closed the frame on a 6-2 run to lead 30-22. Westmoore was never any closer than seven points the rest of the way.

“I think we played three and a half good quarters,” Kuestersteffen said. “I think we played well as a team.”
