Orangeburg- Wilkinson runs away from Woodland in battle of top 10 teams

Dorchester – Led by its version of the triplets (AKA Aikman, Irvin and Smith) the 6th ranked AAAA Bruinette’s of Orangeburg-Wilkinson ran past the 6h ranked AA Lady Wolverines of Woodland 64-23 to sweep the season series 2-0.

The win moves OW’s record to 11-1 as they get set to finish their non-region schedule against Lake Marion on Saturday night.

“We played good team basketball and the girls played together. Woodland has a good basketball team, so we wanted to come out and set the tempo and get them out of their comfort zone,” said OW head coach Cedrick Simpson.

The game was tied early at two apiece when the Bruinette’s closed the first quarter on a 17-2 run. They were led by senior forward Aaniya Davis’s 10 points (Triplet 1) and dominance in the paint and at the back of the 1-1-2-1 ¾ quarter court press. She finished the night with 16 points.

The second quarter belonged to triplet number two, point guard Shardasia Zeigler as she hit a three to start the quarter and caused havoc at the top of the zone press. She also had a no-look assist that got the crowds attention. The sophomore was recently offered by Claflin University.

North Carolina A&T signee D’Mya Tucker, triplet number three, put her stamp on the second half as she scored 17 of her game high 23 points. She showed why she is one of the top seniors in the state as she hit from outside, scored slashing through the land and one beautiful over the shoulder pass for a basket.

Woodland fell to 5-5 on the year. They begin region play Tuesday at 11-4 Whale Branch. They were led by senior Ronda Simmons with 13 points on the night.

“We gave into their pressure even though they didn’t trap us as hard as in our first game. The indication they were going to caused us to throw the ball away and play frantic. It comes down to mental toughness and we have to improve in that area if we are going to get better,” said a frustrated Woodland head coach Tamara Washington.

The OW boys’ team made it a sweep as they outscored Woodland 10-4 in overtime to take a 54-48 non-region win. The win improves the Bruins record to 10-5 while Woodland drops to 5-6.

Junior John White had a double/ double for OW with 18 points and 10 boards while sophomore Jordan Simpson added 16 points for the Bruins.
