Girls Basketball: Old Mill Edges B

‘They don’t fret. They pick each other up and they get after it.’ Michael Errigo Michael Errigo is a high school sports reporter and news aide for The Washington Post.

The complete details. Another one.

TOWSON, Md. ‘ The Bethesda-Chevy Chase shooter slipped past her defender into a pocket of space along the baseline. With her team trailing by two in the Maryland 4A semifinals, a mid-range jumper could complete the Barons’ late comeback and send this game to overtime.

Old Mill forward Sydney Faulcon came barreling out of the lane to meet her. The senior had spent the afternoon by the basket, bullying opponents and challenging shots. But now she had to leave the comfort of the block and close out if she wanted to secure her team a spot in the state title game.’

Faulcon ran forward with her hand up and then turned around to watch the flight of the ball. It bounced off the rim, harmless, and she made a beeline to her bench, ready to celebrate a 57-55 victory.’

While you’re here, how about this:

GIRLS BASKETBALL: Lady Buffs hang on to edge rival Durant Elizabeth Milligan (30) had a team-high 15 points as the Lady Buffs got past Durant, 52-44, in part due to some timely buckets and free throws by Milligan in the second half.’

Brenae Rhone was out with an ankle injury, and Erin Kelley had four fouls, but the Class 5A-No. 12 Lady Buffaloes (8-5) survived rival Durant, 52-44. It was the first time the Lady Buffs played the Lady Lions this season.

McAlester head coach Jarrod Owen said he wanted to give Rhone the entire week off, saying she hurt her ankle pretty badly in practice Jan. 7, the day before 39-38 win at home against Ada, which Rhone played in. She also took part in the East Central Oklahoma Classic at Ada Jan. 10-12 and is scheduled to play in Tuesday’s home game against Atoka, Owen said.
