AC Carter____________________________________Nicole Azar
With junior AC Carter doing it underneath and sophomore Nicole Azar taking care of it from the outside, Wesleyan turned a five-point halftime deficit into a 21-point rout over previously unbeaten North Cobb Saturday monring in the first game of the Krossover Classic hosted by Archer High School. The Krossover Classic is one of numerous one-day showcases pitting good teams against one another as college coaches attend to scout players with their high school teams as opposed to during the AAU season.  Game 1 on the day didn't dissapoint.  It pitted two teams, highly ranked in their respective classifications, sporting identical 18-0 records.  Class A No.  1 ranked Wesleyan took the first quarter sporting a 12-10 lead at the end of the period.  Class AAAAAAA No. 3 ranked North Cobb turned things around in the second period outscoring Wesleyan 16-9 taking a five-point advantage into halftime leading 26-21.  The Lady Wolves made adjustments at halftime and came our roaring...that would be if Wolves actually roared...how about howling?  Either way, Wesleyan completely smothered the Lady Warriors from Kennesaw in the second half.  The Lady Wolves outscored North Cobb 21-6 in the third quarter and 17-6 in the fourth.  The rout over their highly regarded counterparts from the state's largest classification was complete.  The big win came as Wesleyan played without super soph point guard Paige Lyons who continues to nurse an ankle injury. Carter led the Wesleyan scoring effort with 27 points.  She was able to get to the rack drawing numerous fouls.  She shot 81% from the free throw line on 9-for-11 shooting.  Carter also had nine rebounds...all on the defensive end, three assists and two steals.  Azar was the other Wesleyan player to score in double figures as she put up 22 points while canning six three-pointers.  She also led the team in steals with four while grabbing two boards and dishing two assists.  Sophomore Alyssa Phillip cleaned the glass for the Lady Wolves as she pulled down a game high 11 rebounds. Junior Izzy Larsen scored four points, grabbed seven boards and led the team in assists with five.  Freshman Jessie Parish added four points and two rebounds while lone senior Callie Weaver did a nice job stepping in at point guard.  She had four rebounds, three assists, two points, a steal and took a charge.  This was an impressive win for Wesleyan over a highly ranked team from a much larger classification...and without its starting point guard.  The Lady Wolves improve to 19-0 on the year while handing North Cobb it's first loss of the season as they drop to 18-1.  The Lady Wolves return to region play on Tuesday as they'll face Atlanta Classical Academy in the first ever meeting between the schools.  Tipoff is 5:30 PM on Tuesday at Wesleyan.

AC Carter is sized up by Paideia's Helen Latting
Wesleyan travelled to Decatur and took care of fifth ranked Paidea 58-33 in a region raod win at Paideia on Friday night.  Although sloppy and plagued with foul trouble for multiple players, Wesleyan built leads of 13-7 at the end of first quarter and 32-9 at halftime. Benefitting from a 9-2 discrepancy in fouls called in the third quarter in Paideia's favor, the Pythons were able to close the gap to 43-28 heading into the fourth.  Wesleyan then essentially shut Paideia down in the fourth outscoring the Pythons 15-5 and was simply happy to get out unscathed with their third region win of the season.  AC Carter had a good night leading Wesleyan in four categories including having double double scoring 16 points while pulling down 17 rebounds.  She also led the team in assists with six and blocks with three.  Izzy Larsen had 15 points, eight rebounds, three steals and two assists while Alyssa Phillip added 11 points, four rebounds, two assists and a blocked shot.

Balanced Wesleyan comes from behind to take down Florida Class 7A No.2 ranked Dillard, 63-57

image_name2
Izzy Larsen defended by Dillard's Genovea Johnson
Wesleyan took on Dillard (FL) Saturday night in the "She Got Game Classic" at McEachern High School and came away with a hard fought 63-57 win.  The win was especially sweet as the Lady Wolves got to avenge a tough two-point loss to Dillard which occurred at the Nike Tournament of Champions in Phoenix in December 2015 in the team's only previous meeting.  The only member of the team who was on that squad was senior Callie Weaver who was a freshman at the time.  She made her presence known early on as she hit a three pointer to start things off for Wesleyan.  She and Nicole Azar combined for five first quarter three pointers between them, assisted by some nice dishes by Paige Lyons, helping Wesleyan gain a 21-16 lead at the end of the first quarter.  The crisp ball movement and rebounding that was so prevalent in the first quarter for the Lady Wolves, disappeared in the second quarter.  Dillard's sharp shooting guards Kintaeja Ling and Genovea Johnson, heated up as the duo combined for several three pointers in the period.  The combination of the Lady Wolves moving away from what got them their first quarter lead, and the Lady Panthers' outside game, was reflected on the scoreboard.  Dillard, ranked No. 2 in Class AAAAAAA in Florida, outscored Wesleyan 17-7 in the period taking a 33-28 lead into halftime.  Halftime adjustments were made.  Wesleyan changed up its defense and isloated the two Dillard guards essentially shutting them down from long range.  Wesleyan turned a five-point halftime deficit into a four-point lead as they outscored Dillard 19-10 in the third quarter, taking a 47-43 lead into the fourth.  The Wesleyan lead grew to as much as 11 in the fourth quarter at 58-47 with about two minutes left in the game.  That's when Lyons tweaked her ankle after landing on a Dillard player's foot while attempting to block her shot.  She had to exit the game and Dillard upped its defensive pressure.  They were able to cut the lead to three points at 60-57 late but AC Carter sealed the win with free throws to the game on ice.  All five Wesleyan starters scored in double figures as the Lady Wolves scoring attack was well balanced.  Azar led the Wesleyan scoing effort with 13 points.  She was 4-for-6 from behind the three-point line and also had two rebounds and one assist.  Carter scored 12 points and had six rebounds, four assists and two blocked shots.  Weaver, Lyons and Izzy Larsen each scored 11 points.  Lyons was Wesleyan's assist leader with nine as she narrowly missed a double double.  Lyons also had four boards and two steals.  Weaver was 3-for-6 from the three point line and also had three boards, an assist and a steal.  Larsen put up a double double as she had 11 rebounds to go with her 11 points and also had two assists and a steal.  She was named the game's Most Valuable Player.  Alyssa Phillip added five points, two boards and a blocked shot for the Lady Wolves who improve to 16-0 on the year as Dillard falls to 11-3.  Dillard will head home to Ft. Lauderdale while Wesleyan goes to back to region play on Tuesday as they travel to WD Mohammed to take on the Caliphs.  Tipoff is 5:30 PM.

Wesleyan had no trouble in its region opener posting a 91-28 win over Atlanta International at Wesleyan.  On a night when highly decorated former Lady Wolves Holli Wilkins ('12) and Katie Frerking ('13) were inducted into Wesleyan's Circle of Honor, the current team made quick work of the visting Eagles from AIS.  Every Wesleyan player entered the scoring column tonight led by Page Lyons. The sophomore point guard scored 21 points to go with four assists and four steals.  AC Carter had 14 points, a team high eight steals, six assists and three rebounds.  Nicole Azar put up 13 points, a game high seven assists and five steals, while Callie Weaver had 12 points, five assists and three steals.  Izzy Larsen added nine points, a team high seven rebounds, four assists and three steals.

2018 Carolina Invitational Champions
It wasn't the prettiest game but in the end, Wesleyan got the job done as they won the Carolina Invitational posting a 51-35 win over Bullitt East (KY) in the championship game at Porter Gaud School in Charleston.  The teams exhanged leads in the early going.  Bullitt East led 7-5 before back to back three pointers by Nicole Azar gave Wesleyan a little breathing room at the end of the first quarter, taking an 11-7 lead.  The Lady Wolves then outscored Bullitt East 14-11 in the second quarter 25-18 lead into halftime.  As the game wore on, the Lady Wolves upped its lead ever so methodically behind solid defense and good clock management.  Wesleyan won the third quarter 11-8 to up the lead to double figures at 36-26 heading into the fourth.  They put the game away with a 15-9 fourth to post the 15-point victory.  Azar was Wesleyan's leading scorer putting up 13 points to go with two steals, two rebounds and an assist.  Paige Lyons, who earned tournament Most Valuable Player honors, scored 10 points to go with three assists, three rebounds and two steals.  Callie Weaver, who was named to the All Tournament team, scored eight points, had eight rebounds, three assists and took SIX CHARGES!  Izzy Larsen put up eight points, six boards and four assists while AC Carter, who also made the All Tournament team, added six points, seven rebounds and two assists.  Alyssa Phillip chipped in two points, four boards and two steals for the Lady Wolves who are now 14-0 on the season.  Wesleyan will take its last long break of the season as they won't take the court again until Friday when they face Atlanta International in their region opener.  Tipoff is 5:30 PM at Wesleyan.

Nicole Azar drops one of her five threes over North Marion defender
Despite a double digit win over a previously undefeated team yesterday, Wesleyan only looked decent for one half.  Today was a different story as the Lady Wolves manhandled North Marion (WV) 68-35 in their semifinal round game of the Carolina Invitational at Porter Gaud School in Charleston.  Wesleyan was a focused team for four quarters which resulted in a lopsided win over North Marion, the defending West Virginia Class AA state champions from Farmington. Similar to yesterday's game, Wesleyan jumped out to an early lead with a stifling full court press which created numerous turnouvers resulting in Wesleyan points.  The Lady Wolves led 23-1 at the end of the first quarter.  North Marion was able to settle in during the second quarter and played evenly with Wesleyan as the lead stayed at 22 points, Wesleyan leading 39-17 at the half.  The damage had alrleady been done as Wesleyan outscored North Marion 29-18 in the second half.  Sophomore Nicole Azar led the Wesleyan scoring effort with 23 points, connecting on five of eight three-point attempts.  She also led the team in steals with four, and had three rebounds.  Junior AC Carter narrowly missed a double double as she had 18 points and nine rebounds to go with five assists and three steals.  Junior Izzy Larsen added nine points, five rebounds, four assists and three steals in a nice all around effort while sophomore Paige Lyons had eight points, five assists, three steals and two boards.  Lone senior Callie Weaver chipped in six points, three rebounds and three steals while sophomore Alyssa Phillip had four points and three rebounds for Wesleyan which improves to 13-0 on the season.  North Marion falls to 7-2.  Wesleyan will face Bullitt East (KY) in the tournament championship game.  Bullitt East, from Mt. Washington, Kentucky, narrowly defeated North Forsyth (GA) 43-42 in its semifinal game.   Tipoff is 12:30 PM.

Despite ugly second half, Lady Wolves dismiss Fort Dorchester in first round of Carolina Invitational

Paige Lyons floats past Ft. Dorchester's Janyya Burton
Perhaps a Christmas hangover was to blame as Wesleyan was far from sharp in a 53-38 win over Fort Dorchester (SC) in their first round game of the Carolina Classic hosted by Porter Gaud School in Charleston, SC.  Oddly, the hangover didn't kick in until the second half.  The Lady Wolves were in control from the outset as they raced to a 14-0 lead before Fort Dorchester, from North Charleston, finally got on the scoreboard.  Wesleyan led 16-2 at the end of the first quarter.  The lead grew to 29-9 at halftime.  The Lady Wolves apparently felt contented in the second half as the game seemed put away but no one told Fort Dorchester's Taylor Bates.  The diminutive guard for the Patriots connected on five second half three pointers.  Fort Dorchester went on a 15-2 run cutting the Wesleyan lead to just 13 after it had grown to 26.  That was as close at they would get however as Wesleyan posted the 15-point win.  AC Carter led Wesleyan with 14 points, five rebounds, four steals and three assists while Paige Lyons had13 points to go with six assists.  Nicole Azar added nine points, a blocked shot and a steal. Izzy Larsen led Wesleyan in rebounds with a monster 16 boards to go with four points and two assists.  Callie Weaver chipped in seven points, three rebounds and two assists while Alyssa Phillip put up four points and four boards.   The Lady Wolves improve to 12-0 with the win while handing Fort Dorchester its first loss of the year as they drop to 11-1. Up next is a meeting with North Marion (6-1) from Farmington, West Virginia.  Wesleyan will have to play a complete game in order to win against a talented and disciplined North Marion squad.  Tipoff is Noon tomorrow at Porter Gaud School.

Nicole Azar drives past South Cobb'sTamera Tookes
Wesleyan is off to its best start in school history as they posted a 72-37 win in their first ever meeting with South Cobb Saturday afternoon at Sequoyah High School.  This is the first Wesleyan squad to start a season 11-0.  Only once prior had a team even been 10-0.  That was the 2010-2011 team.  Assistant Coaches Taylor Blackmon and Brittany Stevens were sophomores on that team, which went on to win the Class A state title, its fourth straight.  The Lady Wolves took control of the game early on racing to a 21-11 at the end of the first quarter.  In the second quarter, Wesleyan did a nice job defensively on South Cobb, a AAAAAA school from Austell.  However, the Lady Wolves' offense sputtered while it lacked cohesiveness.  Wesleyan won the second quarter 13-3 and headed into the locker room at halftime with a 34-14 lead.  The Lady Wolves came out in the second half looking like a different team offensively.  There was a lot more flow to the offense and nice, crisp ball movement.  They increased their lead to 56-31 at the end of the third period and continued their good team play in the fourth as they posted the 72-37 win.  Sophomore Nicole Azar led all scorers dropping 21 points on the Lady Eagles. Junior AC Carter narrowly missed a double double as she had 20 points and nine rebounds to go with five assists and four steals.  Lone senior Callie Weaver put up 11 points, four assists, four steals and three rebounds while junior Izzy Larsen had nine points, eight boards, three steals and two blocks.  Sophomore Paige Lyons led the team in assists and steals with seven and six respectively.  She also put up six points and had four rebounds and two blocked shots.  Freshman Jessie Parish added five rebounds, and two steals for the Lady Wolves.  Wesleyan is now 11-0 on the season with the win and will have four days off to enjoy Christmas.  The team leaves for Charleston, South Carolina on Wednesday as they'll compete in the Carolina Invitational Thursday, Friday and Saturday.  Opponents and game times to be announced.

Weaver's 19 pace Wesleyan to 58-40 win over Class AAAAAAA No. 10 Brookwood

Paige Lyons shoots over Brookwood's Jana Williams

Class A top ranked Wesleyan downed Class AAAAAAA No. 10 ranked Brookwood 58-40 Saturday night in the Hawks/Naismith Holiday Classic at Norcross High School.  The third ever meeting between Wesleyan and Brookwood was different than the prior two meetings which took place in December 2012 and December 2013 respectively.  The difference?  Second-year Brookwood coach Carolyn Whitney is a 2006 Wesleyan grad who was point guard on Wesleyan's 2004, 2005 and 2006 Class AA state championship teams.  In addition to playing for Coach Azar years ago, she was also and assistant coach at Wesleyan for five years until taking an assistant coaching job at Lambert for a year before becoming Brookwood's head coach last season.  Once the ball was tipped, it was all business for both coaches.  The Lady Wolves were sharp in the first quarter with crisp ball movement and presicion-like passing.  Wesleyan opened up a double-digit lead at 20-8 at the end of one.  Things settled down somewhat in the second quarter as Wesleyan only outscored Brookwood 11-7 taking a 31-15 lead at halftime.  The Lady Broncos played Wesleyan evenly in the third quarter and could only shave one point off the lead.  Wesleyan led 42-27 at the start of the fourth and outscored Brookwood by three to post the 18-point win.  Wesleyan's lone senior Callie Weaver continued her consistent play as she led all scorers with 19 points to go with five rebounds, three steals and two assists.  AC Carter recorded another double double scoring 15 points while pulling down 10 boards.  She also had two assists and two steals.  Izzy Larsen was the third Wesleyan player to score in double figures will 11 points, nine rebounds, three assists and three steals.  Paige Lyons added nine points, six assists and two rebounds while Nicole Azar had three points, five assists and two boards.   The Lady Wolves improve to 10-0 on the season, matching the best start to a season in school history.  Only the 2010-2011 Lady Wolves had started a season 10-0.  Coach Whitney is doing great things over at Brookwood and has her team ranked in the top 10 in Georgia's largest school classification.  Brookwood, which has a win over Class A No. 2 ranked Holy Innocents earlier this season and a narrow two-point overtime loss to Class AAAAAAA No. 4 ranked Norcross, drops to 6-5 with the loss.  Coach Azar, and protigee Whitney, exchanged a heartfelt hug after the game so their friendship remains in tact.  The Wesleyan players will finish exams this week and then play one more game prior to Christmas.  The Lady Wolves will face yet another Class AAAAAAA school as they take on South Cobb next Saturday at Sequoyah High School. Tipoff is 11:30 AM.

Lady Wolves rout AAAAA Cedar Shoals in ugly 69-51 win

AC Carter scores over Cedar Shoals' Jeanetta Elder
Wesleyan defeated Cedar Shoals 69-51 Tuesday night in a mostly sloppy performance at Yancey Gymnasium.  The first ever meeting between Wesleyan and Cedar Shoals saw the Lady Wolves hold leads of 17-10 at the end of the first quarter and 41-26 at halftime. The teams played mostly evenly in the second half. Wesleyan seemed to be in pre-exams mode as their collective heads seemed to be somewhere else this evening.  Sloppy play and turnovers were prevalent tonight.  The team is allowed a mulligan as they still won by 18 over a much larger Class AAAAA school.  Izzy Larsen led the scoring effort with 25 points to go with four rebounds and two steals.  AC Carter put up 18 points to go with seven rebounds, four assists and four steals.  Alyssa Phillip added 11 points while Paige Lyons had a game high 12 assists to go with seven points, four rebounds and four steals.  Wesleyan improves to 9-0 on the season with Class AAAAAAA Brookwood on the horizon on Saturday.  The Lady Wolves face the Broncos at 4:15 on Saturday at Norcross High School.

Alyssa Phillip eyes the basket for uncontested layup
Wesleyan's long home stand continued Friday night. Class A No. 10 ranked Landmark Christian drove up to Norcross from Fairburn to take on the top ranked Lady Wolves and was handed a 70-26 loss in front of a nice sized crowd at Yanecy Gymnasium.  This was the fifth straight home game for Wesleyan and the outcome was never in doubt.  The Lady Wolves led 21-2 at the end of the first quarter and 35-11 at halftime.  Despite the lopsided lead, Coach Azar wasn't happy with her team's effort in the first half, mainly the lack of team cohesiveness.  The third quarter was a different story as the team did a better job of sharing the ball and pushing it up the floor.  The result was a 23-9 advantage in the period resulting in a 58-20 lead heading into the shortened six-minute fourth quarter.  Junior AC Carter turned in another double double as she led the team in scoring and rebounds with 15 points and 15 rebounds to go with five assists and two steals.  Senior Callie Weaver put up 13 points, five rebounds and four assists while Sophomore Alyssa Phillip had 12 points.  Sophomore Nicole Azar added nine points, three boards and two assists for Wesleyan while junior Izzy Larsen eight points, six rebounds and two steals. Sophomore Paige Lyons chipped in seven points, three steals, three assists and two boards for the Lady Wolves who improve to 8-0 on the season with the win.  The last game of this six-game homestand will be Tuesday night as Cedar Shoals travels to Norcross from Athens.  Tipoff is 6:00 PM.

Nicole Azar
Wesleyan travelled to Southwest Dekalb Wednesday night and posted an impressive 69-47 win over the traditional powerhouse from Class AAAAA.  The first quarter was tight with Wesleyan leading 11-8 at the end of the period.  The Lady Wolves open it up in the secord quarter outscoring SW Dekalb 20-4 in the period taking a 31-12 lead into halftime.  The third quarter saw more offense from both squads as Wesleyan increased its lead to 54-30 heading into the fourth period.  SW Dekalb outscorded the Lady Wolves 17-15 in the fourth but Wesleyan had built a large enough cushion where that was inconsequential.  Sophomore Nicole Azar led the Wesleyan scoring effort with a game-high 21 points including going 5-for-7 from the three point line.  She also had three rebounds, two steals and finished the game shooting 78% from the field. Junior AC Carter had 14 points, five assists, four rebounds and four steals.

Wesleyan defeated Class AAAAAA No. 5 ranked Stephenson 60-49 in a non-region contest held at Parkview High School Monday night.  It was the third overall meeting between the schools and the first since a 67-59 Wesleyan win in Mrytle Beach, South Carolina back in 2009.  On a night when shots weren't falling, the Lady Wolves were able to find a way to beat a speedy, athletic Stephenson squad.  Stephenson, a Class AAAAAA school from Dekalb county, was knocking down shots left and right in the first quarter as Wesleyan aided their efforts by turning the ball over.  The Lady Jaguars built a 19-9 lead at the end of the first quarter.  Wesleyan changed up its defense in the second quarter and the pendulum began to swing in the Lady Wolves' favor.  Wesleyan went on a 15-3 run and took a 24-22 lead at the 2:48 mark.  The Lady Wolves took a 30-27 lead into halftime.  Wesleyan continued to play better defense in the second half as Alyssa Phillip and AC Carter did a nice job on the defensive boards.  The Lady Wolves' lead increased to 47-39 at the end of the third quarter.  Wesleyan then outscored Stephenson 13-10 in the fourth, effiectively finishing off the Lady Jags.  As stated earlier, Weslyean's shooting percentage wasn't stellar to say the least.  The team shot just 38% from the field on 18-for-47 shooting and were also a not-so-good 57% from the free throw line on 20-for-35 shooting.  Still, this was a good test for a young Wesleyan squad with only three upperclassmen on the roster. Sophomore Paige Lyons led the Wesleyan scoring effort with 13 points to go with five rebounds and two assists.  Junior AC Carter barely missed a double double as she scored 11 points to go with nine boards and two blocks.  Senior Callie Weaver took an elbow to the nose in the second half....was called for a foul no less, but still had a strong night scoring 10 points while grabbing five rebounds and dishing a pair of assists.  Junior Izzy Larsen added eight points and a team high 11 rebounds and had three blocks.  Sophomore Nicole Azar chipped in seven points, two assists and a steal while fellow soph Alyssa Phillip added five points and four boards.  The team showed much resolve in battling back from an early double digit deficit to post a double digit win.  Wesleyan is now 3-0 on the season and will be making 2018-2019 home debut tomorrow against Class AAAAAAA Pope tomorrow.  Tipoff is 2:30 PM at Wesleyan.
