Balanced attack leads Phoenix to win

Balanced attack leads Phoenix to win —

Prep girls basketball

PHOENIX

-- Beth Nikodym set the standard early and her Phoenix girls basketball teammates quickly followed suit in Saturday's Skyline Conference meeting with Lakeview. —

— Nikodym scored six of her eight points in leading the Pirates to a 15-5 lead in the first quarter and her teammates kept the pressure on en route to a 55-36 victory. —

— We got some shots to go down pretty early and then defensively we had pretty good pressure on the perimeter, said Phoenix coach Kyle Walker. That's where (Shantay) Sabin and (Jamie) Ruda try to hang out. We tried to extend our defense out to where those two were so we could cut down on their chances. —

— Sabin and Frances Hartman each had 10 points to pace the Honkers, while Ruda was held to nine as the defensive scheme paid off for Walker and crew. —

— Lakeview's zone pressure didn't faze Phoenix (6-6, 3-1 Skyline) in the first quarter, and its man-to-man defense only served to slow the Pirates for a quarter before the romp continued. —

— Tara Curtis contributed a game-high 11 points, with Jennifer Bones (8), Laura Meredith (7) and Jessica Prisbrey (7) also leading a balanced Pirate attack. —

— Prisbrey also led Phoenix with seven assists, while Nikodym pulled down a team-high nine boards. —

LAKEVIEW (36)-- Sabin 10, Hartman 10, Ruda 9, Winters 4, Gonzalez 2, Albertson 1, Stewart 0, Mason 0. Totals: 13 9-15 36. —

PHOENIX (55)-- Curtis 11, Nikodym 8, Bones 8, Meredith 7, Prisbrey 7, Gonzalez 6, Capp 4, Jackson 4, Clark 0, Gallagher 0. Totals: 21 11-15 55. —

LOST RIVER 60, CASCADE CHRISTIAN 46-- At Central Point, the Challengers opened tentative against the second-ranked Raiders, digging a 22-8 hole in the first quarter, before finally making it a five-point game in the fourth quarter at Scenic Middle School. —

— The comeback effort went awry, however, when a successful 3-pointer was disallowed because of a violation on the shot and Cascade Christian couldn't muster an offensive attack to close out the game. —

— Hollis Bailey's 23 points led Lost River (13-2, 1-0 SCL), while Janelle Conley had a team-high 15 for the Challengers (10-6, 0-1). —
