Notre Dame 58 Covington Holy Cross 45


Recommended Posts

Final in the district seeding game.  Notre Dame was leading by 6 at the half but then pulled away with a 16-3 third quarter.  The Indians fought back in the fourth quarter but just didn’t have enough left in the tank.  The Pandas played a deep bench with at least 10 girls if not 12 getting playing time. The Indians still hampered with injuries had their starters play most of the game.  Macie Feldman led the Pandas with 21 and Julia Hunt led the Indians with 18.

I could watch Macie Feldman play checkers, truly.  Always under control, always within herself, always in the right place, way more burst and athleticism than you're expecting, and her shot looks GREAT.  

Notre Dame had no, and has no, answer for Hunt in the paint, however, their 90 foot pressure from buzzer to buzzer just makes it hard to capitalize on that.  They have to use Hunt to get the ball in-bounds, 90 feet from their basket, and she has to hustle down the court and barely has time to get position deep in the post before the ball is fired up or turned over.  Playing against a Kes-coached team (program, really, because all levels play with the exact same intensity and level of detail) is just zero fun, and if the refs aren't eager for a million trips to the table for hand-checking, they are going to turn you over and over and force you into bad and rushed shots over and over.  

Was a fun game, a really good crowd, and all-in-all, a fine showing by both teams.
