COLLEGE BASKETBALL

Newberry 71, Voorhees 68

NEWBERRY - A second half shooting surge by sophomore Samantha Creed, which saw the Australian score 10 second half points on three 3-pointers and a free throw, helped push the Lady Wolves to a 71-68 victory over visiting Voorhees on Monday.

Newberry (6-2) opened the game on a hot streak as it surged out to a 10-2 lead in the opening 15 minutes. The Lady Wolves saw their lead cut to four points, before a fast break layup by senior Kendra Brown was followed by a made free throw as Brown converted the three-point play.

After the Lady Tigers made four straight stops on the defensive end, it was junior Tasia Holdorf who put the Lady Wolves back in the scoring column. Voorhees did not let the Lady Wolves stretch their lead as the Lady Tigers cut Newberry’s lead down to three points with six minutes remaining.

Voorhees took its only lead with just under five minutes on the clock, before sophomore Haylee Lepaio’s layup at 4:25 sparked a 14-2 run by the Lady Wolves. Lepaio bookended Newberry’s run as her layup with a little over a minute remaining saw Newberry lead Voorhees 37-26 heading into halftime.

The second half opened with Voorhees pressuring the Lady Wolves on the defensive end and cutting the Newberry lead to two points with 15 minutes remaining in the game. Sophomore Zara Pearson converted from beyond the 3-point arc to put the Wolves back up by five.

Newberry’s lead reached nine on multiple occasions as Holdorf sparked the Lady Wolves off the bench with seven points in two minutes.

Newberry’s lead reached 12 with a little under six minutes remaining in the second period when Creed hit three 3-pointers in a span of three minutes. The Lady Wolves led by nine with two minutes remaining, before Voorhees cut the lead to two points on four made free throws and a made 3-pointer from Kierra Patterson.

Creed converted with two seconds on the clock from the free throw line to clinch the Wolves’ three point victory over Voorhees.

Creed finished with 17 points, six rebounds and eight assists, while shooting 4-8 from beyond the arc. Lepaio led the Lady Wolves with 23 points and eight rebounds. Brown finished the evening with 13 points and four steals, while Pearson added seven rebounds and six assists.
