Last week, the Columbus International Lady Lions basketball team had two scrimmages. One was against the West High School Cowboys and the other against Marion Franklin High School Red Devils. The Lady Lions won against the Cowboys, but tied with the Red Devils.
While playing both games, the defense overall was OK but could use some improvement. Something to improve on would be trying to cause more turnovers and get more steals, all while keeping their hands up and working together.
When the Lady Lions were on offense, it was decent, but it also has room for improvement. The ball should be passed more; they can call for the ball, give each other screens and take better shots.
A few problems the team had were caused by the lack of veteran leaders, since there are very few senior players. A main concern was the lack of height because they were unable to get rebounds or second-chance opportunities. And the lack of communication caused many turnovers.
Overall the team played well together, hustling after loose balls. Charlea Henley and Terryn Shepard stepped up to lead the team.
