The Lady Wildcats looked like the defending state champs in win at Richmond




During Tuesday's 75-34 road win over Richmond, coach Otis Smart's defending state champion Laney Lady Wildcats showed why I believe they may be our area's most skilled team. Boys teams included.

Six of the top seven players in the rotation consistently make threes when left open. They all attack with the dribble using both hands and keep their heads up so they can find open teammates. And they seem to love making the passes that lead to each other's easy scores.

Benjamin led all scorers with 20 points in Tuesday's win.
These attributes were on full display during a 10 minute long, 34-6 spurt that put the Lady Wildcats ahead 57-23 and allowed Smart to clear his bench to begin the fourth quarter.

Desha Benjamin led all scorers with 20 points. Aubriana Bonner added 16 and Jasmine Bartlett tallied 11, including 3 three pointers.

Richmond was paced by Makayla Tanksley's 14 points and 13 from Jasmine Robinson.

Laney (4-0) faces Morgan County (3-3), a top ten team in class 3A, Friday at home. The Lady Wildcats are currently ranked #1 in class 3A.

The last time Laney and Morgan County played, the game was highly entertaining. I placed the AugBball sponsored broadcast directly below. Check it out!
