Brewer girls enjoy playing with target on backs

After winning a state championship, some teams might become complacent, but Brewer is not one of them.

Head girls basketball coach Ricky Allen said that their team doesn’t discuss their No. 1 ranking except for the target that comes associated with it.

“This team loves playing under pressure,” Allen said. “They know we have targets on our backs and they have embraced it. This team has continued to work hard throughout the year.”

That pressure helped the Lady Patriots (19-1, 5-0) to a pair of convincing wins on Friday and Saturday over Scottsboro, 89-64, and Woodland, 74-50.

On Friday, Brewer jumped all over the Wildcats in the first quarter 30-11 and was able to empty his bench throughout the game.

“When you jump out to such a big advantage in the first quarter, you’re able to let a lot of people play,” Allen said. “When the backups get in the game, they’re hungry and want to contribute.”

Riley Northway led the way with 21 points and 11 rebounds followed by Savana Flack with 13 rebounds and 16 points on 8 of 9 shooting.

Rheagan Harvel contributed a double-double with 11 points and 10 assists. Emily Oden had nine points and seven rebounds while Cheyenne McLemore finished with eight points, seven rebounds and five assists.

Caitlin Lavendar also added eight points and nine rebounds. Mallory Drinkard finished with six points. Brook Childers added five points and eight rebounds while Shelbi Bowen finished with five points.

The Lady Patriots will host Columbia on Friday. Varsity girls will play at 6 p.m.
