DEFENSE! DEFENSE! DEFENSE!
The Covington Lady Buccs put together a stellar defensive effort in capturing their first win of the young season - a 56-22 victory over Tri-County North.
Brandon Studebaker picked up his first career win as the Lady Buccs' head coach.

NOVEMBER 26, 2019 - COVINGTON
First-year Buccaneer coach Brandon Studebaker picked up his first career win on Tuesday with a 56-22 victory over Tri-County North.

Defense has been the staple of Lady Bucc Basketball for decades and it was a standout defensive performance Tuesday that led to the win. After surrendering 11 points in the opening frame, Studebaker’s squad was relentless on defense the rest of the way - limiting North to just eleven points combined in the final three quarters.

The defensive pressure early on led to turnovers and easy buckets at the other end as Covington built a 31-11 lead after one. Sophomore Claudia Harrington scored 12 of her game-high 16 points in the frame.

The Lady Buccs pulled away from the full-court pressure in the second, which made it very difficult for Tri-County North to find open looks. The Lady Panthers could only manage five field goals in the final three quarters against Covington’s half court defense.

Covington pushed its led to 41-15 at the break with a pair of buckets by Claire Fraley inside the paint, a runner by Morgan Kimmel and two free throws by Harrington.

Kimmel, Harrington and Fraley dropped in buckets in the third, while Josie Crowell connected on a trey and two free throws to help push the Covington advantage to 52-19 with one period to play.

The Lady Buccs emptied the bench throughout the second half and sat the starters throughout the entire fourth quarter as Covington cruised to the 34-point win.

With their first win, the Lady Buccs even their record at 1-1 overall and improve to 1-0 in CCC play.

Covington travels to Versailles on Saturday at noon.
