GIRLS BASKETBALL: Crater uses edge in size to down Henley

CENTRAL POINT — Crater used its height advantage and rolled to a 54-22 nonconference girls basketball victory over Henley Saturday.

The Comets, ranked fifth in Class 5A, built a 30-14 lead through the first half against the 4A Hornets and were not threatened.

“We had a size advantage, especially at guard,” said coach Scott Dippel after the Comets improved to 4-0, “and I thought we did a really good job, especially in the first quarter, scoring inside and establishing the inside.”

Crater grabbed 11 offensive rebounds in the first period.

“While we didn’t shoot the ball particularly well at the beginning,” said Dippel, “that kind of established what we wanted to do in the half court with our height advantage.”

McKenzie Hirsch, a 5-foot-10 sophomore guard, scored 17 points to lead the Comets. She also had nine rebounds.

Seven of her points came in the first.

“She’s a longer guard,” said Dippel, “and she was able to get in and shoot over the top of their defenders.”

Dippel used a lot of players in the second half and was pleased with their discipline in half-court defense.

Averi Young added 12 points and six rebounds for Crater, and Presley Robison had 10 points and three assists.

Crater’s next game is Wednesday, when it visits 6A power South Medford for a 6:45 p.m. contest.
