Definitely not our girls best game. Going scoreless in the second quarter isn’t something we’re proud of, but it did happen. Kudos to Webster for pulling us out of the game a little bit. Big kudos to Sydney Baird and the Webster team. You know she’s a tough basketball player. She had her guard up her 40 two games in a row, but honestly I think my daughters defended as best they could.
Holly Pettit, Cameron’s head coach
I mean, we were down in the first half, but we put it back together…the energy on the bench was insane. Our student section was awesome. It’s now here to gain that momentum and come back, which means winning.
Kenzie Clutter, 15 points, 6 assists
