Prairie, Ritchie stop Dodger girls
When you are 6'2", can score from the inside an also hit three pointers, you are going to hurt a lot of teams.
That's what Prairie du chien senior Gabby Ritchie did to the Dodgeville girls basketball team Thursday night in SWC play.
She hit 25 points, which included five three pointers, and led her team to a 51-27 throttlling of the Dodgers.
The game was close at the half even though Ritchie had hit three from downtown and scored 12 points as her team led 23-19.
Dodger sophomore Olivia Argall had led the Dodgers in the first half with nie points.
The second half was a different story as the Lady Blackhawks limited the Dodgers to just eight points while coming up with 28 themselves.
"We didn't communicate and were very slow to rotate in the second half," said Dodger coach Josh Busch. "We didn't play with our normal energy. We did a good job being patient early on, but when we got down we panicked."
He said they had 33 tunrovers in 60 possessions.
"We can't do that and expect to be competitive in games,"Busch said."We had too many forced drives. We need to not force things and run our offense."
