The duo combined for 37 points as Lincoln-Way East breezed to a 50-18 victory Tuesday night.
Taylor Johnson knows she can score points in bunches. But with standout guard Kelly McGovern out for the season after shoulder surgery, Johnson not only is being counted on to put the ball in the basket but also to guide the Griffins on offense. The junior had little trouble doing so during Tuesday night's 50-18 South Suburban Blue Conference victory over Joliet Central. Johnson scored 18 points while helping get the ball into the hands of Caitlin McMahon, who tallied a game-high 19 points, including eight during a two-minute stretch to open the third quarter. "Taylor is so used to getting it and going, but now she has to run the show with Kelly out," Lincoln-Way East coach Jim Martin said. "She did a nice job of setting us up and she also…
One offensive series featuring a slew of rebounds summed up Lincoln-Way East's easy victory Tuesday night.
Stats Pack: In Lincoln-Way East’s 50-18 rout of Joliet Central on Tuesday night, the Griffins did not allow any points for the first 5:01 of the second quarter, stretching a 13-7 lead to 24-9 during that timeframe. Julia Piech contributed five points for the Griffins and was the team’s third-highest scorer even though she didn’t have a single field goal. The Best Play: When you have a rebounding machine like Caitlin McMahon on your side, you have to take advantage of second-chance points, but sometimes it takes a third or a fourth or even a fifth time before you find the bottom of the net. With 2:02 remaining in the second quarter, the Griffins’ Cassidy Cassello scored on the team’s fifth opportunity as the team ran down four rebounds …
