Wesleyan routs Kell in respite from region schedule

image_name2
Nikki McDonald lays one up vs. Kell

Wesleyan enjoyed a 61-30 thrashing of Class AAAAAA Kell Saturday night in the last non-region game they will play during the regular season.  The Lady Wolves are in a stretch of 11 region games over a 12-game span and this contest with Kell was the only non-region contest.  It wasn't much of a contest from the outset and Wesleyan dictated the pace early on taking a 14-4 lead at the end of the first quarter. Kell, out of Cobb County, fared better in the second quarter battling Wesleyan on the boards and getting some second looks that resulted in points.  Wesleyan outscored Kell 15-12 taking a 29-16 lead into halftime. Kell tried a full court press in the second half but the Lady Wolves did not have much difficulty in breaking it most of the time.  The results were layups on the other end.  Wesleyan led 45-23 heading into the fourth quarter.  Both benches cleared in the fourth and Kell was simply overmatched as they were outscored 16-7.  Nikki McDonald posted another double-double as she had 20 points and 12 rebounds. Sophomore Natalie Armstrong, in her first game back after missing three straight since suffering a concussion against Holy Innocents on January 10, made her presence known in the paint scoring 15 points while pulling down eight rebounds.  Lauren Frerking had a solid night with seven points, 12 boards, four assists and four steals.  Cairo Booker had a game high eight assists to go with six points and five steals.  Wesleyan improves to 16-5 on the season with the win.  The team returns to region action on Tuesday night as they travel over to Greater Atlanta Christian.  Tipoff is 5:30 PM.

Cairo Booker elevates as Holy Innocents' Erika Cassell defends

The talent laden Holy Innocents girls handed Wesleyan its first region loss posting a 59-49 victory in front of a nice sized Middle School Night crowd at Yancey Gymnasium on the Wesleyan campus Saturday night.  The game did not start well for Wesleyan as they found themselves in an 11-2 hole early in the first quarter before ending on a 9-0 run to knot the score at 11-11 heading into the second.  Holy Innocents had the lead for most of the second quarter before Wesleyan gained its first lead at 21-20 late in the period.  Holy Innocents scored the last four point of the first half however, and took a 24-21 lead into halftime. Cold shooting and turnovers were Wesleyan's undoing in the second half as Holy Innocents capitalized on Wesleyan miscues and made the Lady Wolves pay on the other end.  The Lady Bears led 37-29 heading into the fourth.  Their lead grew to as large as 17 before Wesleyan made a late run closing the gap to 10 as Holy Innocents outscored Wesleyan 22-20 in the fourth.  Holy Innocents junior Erika Cassell led all scorers as she posted 23 points along with 13 rebounds and five blocked shots.  Khayla Pointer, Holy Innocents' talented point guard, added 12 points and six assists for the Lady Bears.  Nikki McDonald was Wesleyan's high point person posting 20 points to go with seven rebounds and four steals.  Cairo Booker added 12 points and three assists for Wesleyan while Lauren Frerking chipped in nine points, five rebounds, two assists and two blocked shots. With the win, Holy Innocents remains unbeaten at 16-0, 5-0 in region, while Wesleyan drops to 12-5, 4-1.  After four straight home games, the Lady Wolves will head down to Buckhead on Tuesday to take on Pace Academy in another region contest.  Tipoff is 5:30 PM.

Natalie Armstrong shoots over Lovett defender
Wesleyan senior Nikki McDonald, scored the 1000th point of her career last night as the No. 3 ranked Lady Wolves dominated No. 8 Lovett in a region contest posting a 64-33 home win. Wesleyan got out to an early 6-0 lead before going cold while Lovett got hot from behind the arc hitting three three-pointers in the first quarter to keep the score close. Wesleyan led 14-11 at the end of the first.  Wesleyan defense tightened in the second quarter as the defense wasn't allowing Lovett the open looks from the outside that it had in the first.  The Lady Wolves outscored Lovett 14-7 in the period taking a 28-18 lead into halftime. The defensive adjustments made by Wesleyan in the second quarter carried over to the third as Wesleyan outscored Lovett 18-6 in the third and 18-9 in the fourth while coasting to the 64-33 win.  All players saw action in this one. The big story on the night is McDonald's 1000th career point as she has been a mainstay on the varsity since she was a freshman. She becomes the 11th Wesleyan girls' basketball player to reach the 1000-point milestone joining Nikki Luckhurst ('04), Anne Marie Armstrong ('09), Holli Wilkins ('12), Jenny Hall ('02), Erin Hall ('10), Dana Birnie ('01), Carolyn Whitney ('06), Grace Leah Baughn ('11), Katie Frerking ('13) and Sarah Moye ('05).  The Elon signee posted another double-double with 26 points and 16 rebounds two nights after putting up 25 points and 14 rebounds during a win over Greater Atlanta Christian. Congratulations Nikki on this well earned achievement.  Cairo Booker also played a big role in the win over Lovett as she scored 16 points to go with her game high five assists and five steals.  She also had four rebounds. Wesleyan improves to 12-4 overall, 4-0 in region with the win leading up to the upcoming region showdown with top ranked Holy Innocents (15-0).  Holy Innocents was undefeated last season before suffering its only loss in the Class A Private state championship game.  The Lady Bears haven't missed a beat this season with a move to Class AA.  No. 3 Wesleyan and No. 1 Holy Innocents will square off tomorrow at 4:30 PM at Wesleyan in the first of two scheduled meetings this season.

Nikki McDonald posted a double-double vs. GAC
The Lady Wolves were able to put  the memories of Saturday's ugly loss to Loganville behind them as they chalked up a dominating 61-26 region win over rival Greater Atlanta Christian Tuesday night. Wesleyan scored the first eight points of the game en route to a 17-4 advantage at the end of the first quarter.  GAC righted it's ship in the second quarter as Wesleyan outscored the Lady Spartans 15-10 in the period to take a 32-14 lead into halftime. The final dagger came in the third as Wesleyan put the pedal to the floor outscoring GAC 18-2 taking an insurmountable 50-16 lead into the fourth. Nikki McDonald posted another double-double with a game leading 25 points and 14 rebounds to go with five steals.  Cairo Booker scored 10 points and had a game high six assists to go with eight rebounds and a game high six steals.  Lauren Frerking added eight points, five steals, three assists and two boards in her most solid all around performance of the season thus far.  Though this game didn't have quite the drama as some Wesleyan-GAC games in the past, it was a positive for Wesleyan as the team played a solid game and gave great effort for four quarters. Wesleyan improves to 11-4, 3-0 in region with the win and will next face Lovett Thursday night in another region contest. Tipoff is 5:30 PM at Wesleyan.

Poor third quarter pushes Loganville to 49-45 win over Wesleyan

Amaya Register takes off balance layup vs. Loganville
A different Wesleyan squad showed up Saturday afternoon than the one that had just won a Christmas tournament in North Carolina last week.  Loganville scored its first ever win over Wesleyan 49-45 as the Lady Wolves seemed "bus lagged" after returning home on New Year's Eve.  The teams played evenly in the first half with the score knotted at 21 at halftime of this low scoring game. Not that they were hot in the first half but the Lady Wolves went ice cold in the third quarter as Loganville outscored them 12-6 taking a 33-27 lead into the fourth.  Wesleyan found itself down by as much as ten before closing the gap late but it wasn't enough as Loganville held on for the win.  Consistency remains an issue for the Lady Wolves as they must find a rhythm with the bulk of the region schedule ahead of them.  Cairo Booker led Wesleyan with 12 points, three rebounds, two steals and one assist.  Nikki McDonald added 11 points, six rebounds, two steals and a blocked shot. Natalie Armstrong chipped in seven points and five boards. Wesleyan drops to 10-4 on the season with the first meeting with Greater Atlanta Christian looming on Tuesday.  Tipoff is 5:30 PM at Wesleyan.

2014 WNC Holiday Classic Champs

The Wesleyan varsity travelled to Asheville, North Carolina earlier this week and won three games in three days to take the WNC Holiday Classic championship.  The holiday tournament, held on the campus of the University of North Carolina-Asheville, featured teams from North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia.   Wesleyan faced Asheville Christian in the first round game on Monday.  The Lady Wolves led 32-17 at the half and won going away posting a 69-38 win to advance to the semi-finals.  Cairo Booker led Wesleyan in scoring , assists and steals posting 19, five and seven respectively.  Jameson Kavel added 12 points and four steals while Natalie Armstrong had a double-double with 12 points and 11 rebounds.  In the semi-final matchup, they took on Rabun Gap from Dillard, Georgia.  Wesleyan and Rabun Gap had been in the same region in the early 2000's and hadn't played since January 2002.  This Rabun team was far different from those Rabun teams as it featured at 6'3 post player committed to Northwestern and a 6'5 post committed to Tulane.  The Lady Wolves had difficulty with Rabun's size at first and fell behind 11-3 heading into the second quarter.  Wesleyan upped the tempo in the second and outscored Rabun 15-3 taking an 18-14 lead at halftime of this low scoring game.  The rest of the game was played farily evenly as Wesleyan pulled away at the end posting a 41-34 win.  Nikki McDonald led the scoring effort with 13 points and barely missed a double-double as she pulled down nine rebounds. Booker added eight points and four assists for Wesleyan as they advanced to the tournament championship game.  The Lady Wolves faced Bention Honea Path from Honea Path, South Carolina in the championship game on Wednesday.  BHP had narrowly defeated tournament host Carolina Day in Tuesday's semi-final.  Wesleyan trailed early in this one down 6-2 early but closed the first quarter on a 13-3 run to take a 15-9 lead into the second quarter.  BHP could not figure out how to adjust to Wesleyan's defense the rest of the game.  The often only got one shot off in each possession which usually resulted in an easy layup on the other end. Wesleyan outscored BHP 20-1 in the second quartrer, 17-1 in the third and 19-1 in the fourth posting an unlikely 71-12 win.  All Wesleyan players saw action in this one.  Booker led the scoring effort with 23 points to go with five steals and three assists.  Bailey Edwards added 12 points and six rebounds for Wesleyan while Armstrong put up 10 points and eight boards.  Booker was named the tournament's Most Valuable Player while McDonald and Armstrong, along with Booker, earned All Tournament honors.   After the unlikely loss to Buford, Wesleyan has reeled off six straight wins and is now 10-3 on the season.  The team returns to action on Saturday to take on Loganville.  Tipoff is 2:30 PM at Wesleyan.

image_name2
Danielle Summers locks down on Sparkman guard
Wesleyan turned what was looking like a blow out loss into a blow out win Saturday afternoon in the War Eagle Classic showcase event at Woodward Academy.   Wesleyan defeated Sparkman, the Alabama Class AAAAAA runner up last season, 47-31 in a game with two faces.  The first face was rather ugly for Wesleyan.  After jumping out to a 5-2 lead early, the Lady Wolves endured a long scoring drought as Sparkman went on a 15-0 run taking a 17-5 lead. Cairo Booker hit a big three-pointer to close out the first quarter to give Wesleyan a little momentum heading into the second with Sparkman, ranked No. 4 in Class 7A in Alabama, leading 17-8. In the second quarter, Wesleyan did a nice job of chipping away at the Sparkman lead while not allowing the Sparkman shooters the open looks they enjoyed in the first quarter.  Wesleyan outscored Sparkman 11-7 in the period cutting the lead to 22-19 at halftime.   The Lady Wolves began the third quarter on a 10-0 run taking a 29-23 lead with 3:45 left in the period.  The team really did a good job closing out on Sparkman's shooters, while controlling the glass and not allowing many second opportunities.   Wesleyan outscored Sparkman 17-3 in the third quarter to take a 36-25 lead into the fourth. Wesleyan won the fourth quarter 11-6 to close out the game.  After being down 17-5 in the first quarter, Wesleyan outscored Sparkman 42-16 the rest of the way.  Nikki McDonald continued her solid play with 22 points, eight rebounds and four steals.  Booker added 15 points, six assists, three boards and three steals as Wesleyan improves to 7-3 on the season.  The team will now get a week off to enjoy Christmas before travelling to Asheville, North Carolina for a Christmas tournament next week.  They will face Asheville Christian on Monday, December 29 at 5:30 PM at UNC-Asheville.

Nikki McDonald scores on a reverse layup in win over Woodward

In what was their most complete game of the season to date, Wesleyan turned a 10-point halftime lead into a 29-point blowout win over Class AAAA Woodward at Woodward Friday night. Wesleyan built an early 9-0 lead before Woodward got on the board.  The lead then grew to double digits and would remain that way for the entire game.  The Lady Wolves led 17-7 at the end of the first quarter.   The lead grew as large as 16 points in the second quarter but Woodward was able to cut the advantage to 10 by halftime behind a couple of timly three pointers late in the period.  Wesleyan led 31-21 at the half.  In the third quarter the Lady Wolves put the game out of reach and they defended well and controlled the glass.  Woodward was not allowed many second looks and the result was a 22-2 advantage in the period. Wesleyan led 53-24 heading into the fourth quarter.   With four players out due to injury, all nine elligible Wesleyan players scored in this game. Nikki McDonald continued her strong play as she posted another double-double with 29 points and 12 rebounds.  She also had four steals as was 3-for-4 for from the three-point line.  Natalie Armstrong had another double-double of her own scoring 10 points to go with her game high 14 rebounds. Cairo Booker added 16 points, six rebounds, four steals and three assists for Wesleyan which improves to 6-3 on the season.  The Lady Wovles will travel to Woodward again tomorrow to face Sparkman, which was state runner up in Class AAAAAA in Alabama last season.  Tipoff is 3:00 PM.

Lady Wolves gradually emerge from funk, dismantle Gainesville 49-23

Clearly still in a funk from the previous night's unlikely loss to Buford, Wesleyan finally awoke in the fourth quarter to defeat Class AAAAA Gainesville 49-23 Saturday night at Gainesville. Things started well enough for the Lady Wolves as they took a 14-6 lead at the end of one. Gainesville chipped away at the lead in the second quarter as Wesleyan had trouble finding the basket.  The Lady Elephants outscored Wesleyan 12-6 in the period to pull within two trailing 20-18 at the half.   The third quarter was rather forgettable as neither team was sharp.  A total of seven points were scored by both teams.  Due to Wesleyan upping its defensive pressure, Gainesville scored only one of those points.  Wesleyan led 26-19 heading into the fourth.  In the fourth quarter, the collective funk that had fallen over the team disintegrated.  The Lady Wolves began to click on all cylinders and outscored Gainesville 23-4, scoring almost as many points in the fourth quarter as in the previous three combined.  Wesleyan won going away.  Nikki McDonald led the scoring effort with 17 points to go with five rebounds.  Cairo Booker added 13 points, five assists, four rebounds and four steals, while Lauren Frerking scored nine points to with two boards and two steals.  Natalie Armstrong scored six points while pulling down a team high seven rebounds. Wesleyan improves to 5-3 on the season with the win and will next face Class AAAA Woodward on Friday at Woodward.  Tipoff is 7:00 PM.

Cario Booker goes for a steal vs. Buford

This one stung.  After holding a lead for the entire game, Wesleyan had to endure a heartbreaking 54-53 loss to Buford on a layup with three seconds remaining Friday night at Buford.  Wesleyan looked good in the first half taking a 19-11 lead at the end of the first quarter and increasing it to 34-20 at halftime.  Defensively, Wesleyan held Buford's leading scorer and North Carolina State commit Camille Anderson in check allowing her no points scored in the half. Things changed in the second half as Wesleyan's junior point guard Cairo Booker was quickly whistled with her fourth foul less than a minute into the third quarter and relegated to the bench until late in the fourth.  Sophomore Natalie Armstrong was joined her a few seconds later and the dynamics of the game changed.  Anderson was able to get free and led her team to within seven points at the end of the third quarter.  Turnovers cost Wesleyan dearly in the fourth.  Buford took its first lead of the game with 13 seconds remaining in the game.  Wesleyan senior Lauren Frerking was fouled after the inbounds and calmly sank both free throws to give Wesleyan a 53-52 lead with 10 seconds left in the game.  Anderson took the ball the length of the floor and hit a layup with 3.2 seconds left which wasn't enough time for Wesleyan to get a look at a game winning basket.  The win was Buford's first over Wesleyan in nearly five years, their last win being in January of 2010.  Wesleyan had won the previous five meetings and seemed to be on its way to a sixth in a row prior to Fridays tough loss.  This Wesleyan team is finding itself however and is on the brink of getting where it needs to be...the first half of the Buford game was evidence of that.

Lady Wolves drop first two but save face with win in third game of Parkview round robin

Wesleyan played three games in the Parkview Holiday Classic before the Thanksgiving break with mixed results. The format was a round robin meaning three games against three opponents on a neutral court but not in the traditional "tournament" sense....no winners bracket or champion etc. In Wesleyan's first game against Class AAAAAA Hillgrove, the Lady Wolves got down early. Down by as much as 16 in the first half, Wesleyan battled back to cut the lead to three late in the second half but couldn't make it all the way back as they fell 59-53. Wesleyan also suffered its second knee injury to a player in as many games as freshman point guard Amaya Register went down in the first half...just one game after sophomore guard Mikayla Coombs was lost for the season with a torn ACL. Hopefully Amaya will return to action soon. In game two, Wesleyan faced another Class AAAAAA team in Mays. The Lady Wolves kept it close in the first half trailing only 26-23 at the break but Mays was able to extend their lead in the second half as Wesleyan's shooting went cold. Mays won 57-43. The Lady Wolves salvaged the Parkview event by winning game three another Class AAAAAA school Forest Park. Wesleyan broke a 20-20 tie at halftime outscoring Forest Park 21-14 in the third quarter and held on in the fourth to win 53-46. Senior Elon signee Nikki McDonald had a monster game posting a double double scoring 26 points and pulling down 17 rebounds. After taking a break from games for the Thanksgiving holidays, the Lady Wolves will return to action this Friday, December 5. It will be the first region game of the season for Wesleyan as they will travel to Hapeville to take on the Lady Hornets of Hapeville Charter. Tipoff is 6:00 PM.

Wesleyan opnes season with win over South Gwinnett but could come at a cost

Wesleyan opened its 2014-2015 campaign with a 44-27 win over Class AAAAAA South Gwinnett on Wednesday afternoon in the Hilton Tipoff Classic at Norcross High School.  The win however was dampened by an injury to sophomore Mikayla Coombs who went down early in the first quarter with a knee injury. In the first meeting between Wesleyan and South Gwinnett in four years, the Lady Wolves led 11-9 at the end of the first.  The team settled in during the second quarter as South Gwinnett had trouble handling Wesleyan's defense.  The Lady Wolves outscored the Comets 15-3 in the period to take a 26-13 lead into halftime.  The teams played evenly in the third quarter with Wesleyan holding onto a 37-25 lead heading into the fourth.  Nikki McDonald and Cairo Booker led the Lady Wolves' scoring effort with nine points apiece. McDonald also had six rebounds and four steals while Booker had three assists, three rebounds and two steals.  Sophomore Natalie Armstrong contributed eight points, six boards and two blocks while fellow sophomore Bailey Edwards had seven points, two rebounds and two steals.  Coombs scored five points and pulled down two boards in her brief appearance.  Wesleyan is now 1-0 on the season and 4-0 all time vs. South Gwinnett.  The Lady Wolves will next face Class AAAAA Mays in the Parkview Tipoff Classic on Saturday at Parkview.  Tipoff is scheduled for 7:00 PM.
