Lakers roll to easy win over Butler County

Wise scores 17, Canales adds 14 as GC wins 3rd straight game

The Lakers' inside-outside game on offense and suffocating defense helped Garrett College roll to a 69-46 women's basketball victory Saturday afternoon over host Butler County Community College.

Freshman Laker point guard Jersey Wise scored a team-high 17 points, including a pair of 3-pointers. Backcourt mates Josie Canales (7 assists, 7 rebounds, 4 steals) and Harmoni Swain added 14 and 12 points, respectively, for the Lakers.

Aliyah Tucker (game-high 20 rebounds) dominated inside with 11 points while Neah Henry and Shalynn Barlow each pulled down 7 rebounds while scoring 7 and 6 points, respectively. Donea Washington contributed 2 points as the Lakers (5-1) notched their third consecutive victory.

"We put a lot of pressure on the ball," said GC head coach JT Lewis. "We had to have a lot of communication on defense. Shay and Aliyah did a good job of altering shots in the paint without fouling."

Butler (0-2) was led by Aslyn Pry (17 points) and Emma Monteleone (13 points). Hailey Metzger added 9 points.

The Lakers took the lead for good with an early 9-0 run that broke a 2-2 tie. Swain scored the first two hoops of the spurt, which also included a 3-pointer from Wise that capped the spree. Wise (5 assists, 3 steals) finished the quarter with a transition layup that gave the Lakers a 17-9 lead.

BCCC pulled within 20-16 on a 3-pointer by Monteleone, but the Lakers then went on another 9-0 spurt. Wise had a 3-pointer while Tucker added a pair of hoops as Garrett stretched its lead to 29-16.

A third 9-0 run – which included 4 points from Swain and another Wise 3-pointer – helped the Lakers to a 42-20 halftime advantage.

The Pioneers never got closer than 17 points the rest of the way.

"Our 5-1 start doesn't surprise me – I've been excited about this team from the start," said Lewis. "They get along on and off the court, which is a coach's dream. We still have a lot of growing to do, but I'm very excited about this year's team and how they've started the season."

The Lakers host Howard Community College December 2nd at 5 p.m. in a Maryland Junior College Athletic Conference contest.
