“Three Things We Learned” from Girls Basketball vs. Hopkins Dec. 13, 2013

Three Observations from Hamilton Girls Varsity Basketball vs. Hopkins. The Hamilton girls were able to easily finish off their game vs. Hopkins Friday, as they won in dominant fashion, taking the win by a whopping 48 points. There are three main things that we learned about the team, we learned that the team has an incredibly potent offense, a dominating, and physical defense, and we learned once again how Ashley Overbeek can take over and dominate a game.

First, we learned on Friday just how potent that Hamilton offense can be. This can be seen through their ability to knock down shot after shot on their way to 69 points on the night. The time they were the most dominating, however, was in the first half when they lit up the scoreboard with 44 in the first half alone.

Secondly, we learned on Friday that the team can play great defense and shut down their opponents. They allowed only 21 total points in the entire game, and in doing so held Hopkins to single digits in every quarter. In the third quarter, they only allowed Hopkins to score two total points. This can be attributed to the team’s physical play, and, how they were able to cause turnovers time after time.

Lastly, we learned (again) how Ashely Overbeek can take over, and dominate a basketball game. This was seen in her 27 total points, six more than the entire Hopkins team. But, this was most evident in her dominating first half performance. In the first half Ashely scored 21 points, that is almost double Hopkins’ 12 first half points.
