Sometimes it’s just that way.
North’s shooting woes were so apparent, Moore (11-8) adjusted its defense for it.
“We let some guys get by us early, so we backed off a bit,” Lion coach Aaron Howell said. “We could see they were having some trouble with their shot.”
North (9-10) missed all 12 of its 3-point attempts made just 21 of 64 overall. The T-Wolves were only a little better at the free-throw line, making 6 of 10.
On the bright side for North, it was only losing that stung. On the way out of the gym, there was no regret for the T-Wolves.
“We just need to make shots,” Dickinson said. “We left it all on the court and that’s all you can ask for.”
Lindy Waters, another North freshman, added eight points and five rebounds. Dante Butler supported Dove with nine points and the Lions got 11 rebounds from Dorian Gigger.
“It’s definitely a big win for us,” Howell said.
