If Justin Stinson, the head girls basketball coach at Glasgow High School, had any questions about how his young team would respond to pressure, all of those questions were put to rest Monday night when the Lady Scotties overcame a swarming Bowling Green defense to beat the Lady Purples, 62-49.
“I really thought our defense was good all night. I liked the way our kids played, but we didn’t always take care of the basketball,” Stinson said. “I told people before the game that this game, win or lose, would tell us a lot about this team. And I like how we responded.
“I thought we were mentally tough. I thought we played with poise. They made runs in the fourth quarter, but we were able to make some shots and get to the free-throw line.”
The Lady Purples opened the second half with a bucket to cut the Glasgow lead to 31-23. But Emily Alexander responded for GHS with a 3-pointer from the corner to widen the Lady Scotties’ lead to 34-23 with 7:01 on the clock. The Lady Purples came right back to try and cut the GHS lead to single digits, but Alexander came up big again with a 3-pointer from the right side to push the Lady Scotties to a 39-27 advantage with 2:21 to go in the period.
