Lady Cougars fall to Colonels

The Pulaski County varsity girls basketball team dropped a close one last night against the Colonels of William Fleming, closing their three game home stand with a 43-41 loss.
The game was tight all four quarters, with the Cougars exchanging the lead with the Colonels several times throughout the contest, though tight Fleming defense and a few key scores in the final seconds were, in the end, enough to ensure victory.
Ultimately, the game was decided through turnovers and success at the free throw line, with the Cougars falling short on both accounts. Percentage at the foul line made all the difference, with Colonels going 15 for 25 from the foul line whereas the Cougars were a paltry 6 for 19. Another big difference was shown in the fact that the Cougars had a total of 27 turnovers on the night.
“The ball game was lost on the free throw line,” Pulaski head coach Jason Grubb said. “We got a lot of good shots but we didn’t make them,” he added.
Another glaring statistic that was helpful in the Fleming victory was field goal percentage. Pulaski shot 17 for 53 for a weak 32 percent average.
There were, however, some bright spots amid this loss with Freshman post presence Daisy Ball coming up with her biggest game of the year so far. Ball had 13 points from the paint and free throw line and all also had an amazing 6 blocks along with an additional 7 rebounds. Raiven Patterson added 7 and senior guard Hannah Davidson had 5.
“This will give us some time work on our shooting,” Grubb said. “We’ve got to get better.”

The loss brought the Cougars’ record to 2-3 on the year, with a large bulk of the season left to play. The Lady Cougars will get a much needed break before they return to action Wednesday at George Wythe High School. Tip-off is at 7:30 p.m.
