Paxton girls too strong for Hoboes

Williams called off the defensive pressure in the second quarter, but the Bobcats still led 34-10 at the half.

Paxton flirted with the running clock that comes when a team is up by 35 points much of the second half. A Chrissy Currid basket with 3:34 left in the fourth quarter put the running clock into play.

Williams said it was important that the press work early for the Bobcats

“We started off fast and we made some shots,” he said. “If we can make some shots then we can pressure a little bit and that helps us.

“It’s one of those things if we don’t make shots and you get in the half-court situation with their two bigs (Griffin and Reese) and we are in trouble. I was really proud of the way we got out (to a fast start). We penetrated (the lane on the drive) and made the extra pass and we made baskets.”

Murray and Neal were the only players in the game with double figures.

Reese led the Hoboes with eight points and Griffin added four points.
