North girls charge past Raiders

The North Decatur girls basketball team played a game of two halves Tuesday, but defeated host South Ripley 60-43.

“For the first 16 minutes, we just couldn’t get our act together,” said North head coach Brad Bryant. “The tone seemed to be set from the tip when we got the tip and went the wrong direction.

Bryant noted that the Lady Chargers were not assertive enough in using North’s strengths to their advantage.

First, North did not get the ball to its 6-footers underneath, seniors Anna and Alison Wallpe.

“We just didn’t feel like they could guard us on the inside at all,” he said.

Bryant was confident North could not be guarded off the dribble.

“The problem was, though, we took six three’s in the first quarter and didn’t hit any,” he noted. “We didn’t get Anna Wallpe many touches in the first quarter, but when we did, she was able to score.”

Wallpe scored six points in the first quarter.

“We need to do a better job of recognizing things like this and play to it,” he added.

North trailed 27-25 at the break.

Bryant showed the shot chart to his team at halftime. North shot 8-for-13 in the paint and just 1-for-8 from the perimeter.

“That’s not hard to figure out,” he said. “In the second half, to our kids credit, we did a MUCH better job of driving the ball to the basket and getting it to Ali and Anna.”

It worked as Ali Wallpe scored 10 points in the third quarter and Anna Wallpe scored eight more, “continuing her good play.”

Both Wallpes also controlled the rebounding and combined to shoot 8-for-8 from the foul line (Ali 6-for-6, Anna 2-for-2).

Bryant said he was pleased with how North responded in the second half.
