Stall girls stifle Cane Bay, sit alone atop region standings

SUMMERVILLE—With first place in the region on the line, the Stall girls’ basketball team left little doubt that they are a force to be reckoned with.  The Warriors started fast and never looked back in a dominant 59-38 victory over Cane Bay.

Stall moved to 13-4 overall and 3-0 in the conference while the Cobras fell to 9-6 (2-1).

“The way we look at it, every game we’re 0-0.  That’s what the kids want to do.  We just want to be 1-0 after every game,” Stall head coach Donta’ Brown said.  “We don’t look down on any team in the region because there are some great coaches and great kids.  We know what they can do.”

Priscilla Delaney led the way for the Warriors with 16 points, and Ja’miya Foy and Giauna Simmons scored 11 and 10 points, respectively.  In all, nine players scored for Stall.

“It’s a blessing.  Most people key in on Priscilla because they know what she can do, but luckily for us we’ve had a lot of younger players putting in some points.  We only have one player averaging double figures, but that’s because each game a different kid is stepping up.  That’s a luxury to have right now,” Brown said.

Leading 4-2, the Warriors took control with a 10-0 run, highlighted by back-to-back layups by Delaney and Mel Singleton.  After a Cane Bay basket, Delaney knocked down an open three-pointer with under a minute to go in the first quarter to give Stall a 17-4 advantage.

The visitors continued to extend the margin in the second period, pushing the lead over 20 points when Diamond Phillips converted an old-fashioned three-point play.  Simmons drained consecutive jump shots late in the frame, and a free throw by Cane Bay’s Khaliyah McClennon made it 35-14 at the half.

“We go into every game to score off defense.  We want to be able to run the floor.  This year, we’ve got the kids in place to be able to run.  We want to run and play together,” Brown said.

Cane Bay outscored the Warriors 15-13 in the third quarter, but never got closer than 17.  Smiley Kinloch had a team-high 14 points in the loss while McClennon had 11.

Stall put the exclamation point on things at the beginning of the fourth, scoring the eight points to start the stanza and opening up its biggest lead at 56-29.
