Hyde-Woodstock – 14
Wheeler – 50
Hyde traveled to Wheeler in a league match-up. The team once again had trouble with the press but it also struggled to work hard and believe in itself and one another. At halftime the coaches reminded the girls to keep their heads up, take some risks and use the skills they had practiced on a daily basis. The second half was much better than the first with three girls scoring and the offense taking better care of the ball. Hyde rebounded well in the second half which gave them more of a scoring chance. Senior Dossou Ndeye has improved her moves around the basket and demonstrated that in the waning minutes of the game with three very good lay-ups. Hyde plays Southfield on Saturday, February 14, 2015 in their next game.
The scoring was as follows; Dossou Ndeye 3-3-9, Tina She 1-0-3, Cameron Yale 1-0-2
