SMCC vs GCC – WOMEN’S – February 15, 2017


WE’RE COMING TO YOU FROM
GLENDALE COMMUNITY COLLEGE FOR TONIGHT’S WOMEN’S
ACCAC MATCH UP BETWEEN THE LADY GAUCHOS AND THE LADY
COUGARS HERE ON MCTV SPORTS. THANKS FOR JOINING
US TONIGHT. ALONGSIDE ME
IS JEFF LOWERY. I’M MIKE CAROTENUTO. AND JEFF, WELL, IT’S
THAT TIME OF YEAR. GETTING DOWN TO THE LAST
MONTH OF — THE LAST FEW WEEKS OF THE REGULAR
SEASON FOR THE WOMEN. GLENDALE IN 5TH
PLACE RIGHT NOW. THEY STILL HAVE A CHANCE. THEY HAVE SOME WORK TO DO. THEY COME IN AT
9-15 OVERALL. SOUTH MOUNTAIN, ABOUT
5-14, NOT THAT GOOD, BUT, JEFF, AS WE KNOW, IT’S
IMPROVEMENT FROM THE LAST TWO SEASONS WHERE THE LADY
COUGARS WEREN’T ABLE TO WIN A GAME, LOW ON
NUMBERS, BUT 5-14 OVERALL, BUT FOR HEAD COACH
JENNIFER NIEBLING AND THE GLENDALE GAUCHOS THIS IS
GOING TO BE A VERY, VERY BIG GAME. AND WHEN YOU LOOK AT SOUTH
MOUNTAIN, LET’S LOOK AT THEM FIRST. FOR THE LADY COUGARS, THEY
ARE LED BY A GIRL THAT CAN PRETTY MUCH DO
IT ALL, JEFF. IT’S A ONE-TWO PUNCH, AND
THEY’RE GOING TO NEED ALL THAT TONIGHT. WELL, RAEGENE WOMACK
IS THERE TOP SCORER. SHE IS THE LEADING
REBOUNDER IN THE CONFERENCE, NUMBER ONE IN
FIELD-GOAL PERCENTAGE ON HER TEAM, AND REALLY A
ONE-PERSON RECKING CREW FOR THIS TEAM THAT COMES
IN HERE PLAYING FOR SOME PRIDE. THEY’RE NOT MATHEMATICALLY
OUT OF THE IT, WITH FIVE GAMES LEFT TO GO IN THE
ACCAC SCHEDULE, BUT, YOU KNOW, SOUTH MOUNTAIN IS
PLAYING FOR PRIDE HERE TONIGHT. AND WE ARE LOOKING FOR A
BIG GAME OUT OF RAEGENE WOMACK. YEAH, WELL, THE GLENDALE
DEFENSE IS GOING TO HAVE TO CONTAIN HER. WHEN THESE TWO TEAMS MET
BACK ON JANUARY 7TH, WELL, SOUTH MOUNTAIN GOT
ONE OF THEIR WINS. THEY BEAT THEM BY
10 POINTS AT HOME. AND LIKE YOU SAID,
SOUTH MOUNTAIN NOT MATHEMATICALLY OUT OF IT,
BUT FOR GLENDALE, THEY ARE HANGING RIGHT AROUND. THEY ARE IN 5TH PLACE. SCOTTSDALE AND PHOENIX
TIED AT 7-10, WITH A CONFERENCE RECORD. GLENDALE AT 5-12, JEFF, SO
IT IS AN UPHILL BATTLE FOR HEAD COACH JENNIFER
NIEBLING AND HER GAUCHOS, BUT THEY HAVE SOME PLAYERS
THAT CAN DO SOME DAMAGE AS WELL. AND THEY WANT REVENGE
FOR THAT 10-POINT LOSS. WELL, THEY COME IN HERE. THEY’RE TWO GAMES
IN THE STANDINGS. OF COURSE, IN DIVISION
I AND DIVISION II THE CONFERENCE IS BROKEN
UP INTO TWO DIVISIONS. AND THEY TAKE THE TOP FOUR
TEAMS FROM EACH DIVISION. SO GLENDALE COMING
IN, TWO GAMES BEHIND. THEIR TOP PLAYER IS JORDYN
KESLER-KLEIN, A YOUNG LADY THAT CAN REALLY DO IT ALL. SHE IS A GREAT THREE-POINT
SHOOTER AND THE TEAM’S LEADING SCORER. AND MAREENA DENHAM IS
PROBABLY THE EX-FACTOR FOR THE THIS GLENDALE
GAUCHOS TEAM. SHE CAN DO A
LOT OF THINGS. SHE’S JUST GREAT
UNDERNEATH. SHE’S A GREAT PRESENCE,
HIGH FIELD-GOAL PERCENTAGE. SO IT SHOULD BE AN
INTERESTING GAME HERE. AND OBVIOUSLY GLENDALE
WANTS A LITTLE REVENGE FROM A THAT GAME
EARLIER THIS YEAR. OH, YEAH, ABSOLUTELY. BECAUSE IF YOU LOOK AT
GAMES THAT ALWAYS GOT AWAY, OH, IT’S A LONGER
SEASON, JEFF, IT’S JUST ONE GAME, BUT THEY COULD
BE ONE GAME RIGHT NOW FROM THAT 4 SPOT HAD THEY WERE ABLE
TO TAKE CARE OF BUSINESS. SO THEY NEED A
LITTLE BIT HELP. OBVIOUSLY MESA
AND PIMA UP TOP. I KNOW WE’RE NOT SHOCKED
ABOUT THAT IN DIVISION II, BUT, JEFF, WHEN WE LOOK
AT TONIGHT’S GAME FOR HEAD COACH BYRON JACKSON,
HE’S HAD A TOUGH JOB. WE TALKED ABOUT THAT. THE LAST FEW YEARS NOT
WINNING A GAME AND BEING DOWN IN NUMBERS. BUT THIS YEAR LITTLE BIT
INJURY, BUT 7 PLAYERS GOING TONIGHT. HIS TEAM IS STILL
WORKING HARD. AND AS A COACH, HOW TOUGH
IS IT TO GET THEM FIRED UP TO KEEP PLAYING AT THIS
PART OF THE SEASON? WELL, SOMETIMES IT’S JUST
A MATTER OF, YOU KNOW, YOU DON’T WANT TO LOOK BAD
ON A BASKETBALL COURT. AND, YOU KNOW, I THINK THE
KEY TONIGHT IS: THEY’RE GOING TO PUSH THE
TRANSITION GAME, NO QUESTION ABOUT IT. ANDREA GOULETTE IS THE
PLAYER THAT IS PROBABLY THE KEY FOR THEM. SHE’S GOT TO GET
THEM IN TRANSITION. AND THEY GOT TO DO A MUCH
BETTER JOB, NOT ONLY ON THE DEFENSIVE SIDE,
THEY HAVE TO HAVE MORE INTENSITY ON THE DEFENSIVE
SIDE OF THE BALL, BUT THEY ALSO — THEY
NEED TO FINISH. THEY GET AROUND THE
BASKET A LOT THIS YEAR. AND THEY’VE MISSED A LOT
OF, YOU KNOW, EASY LAY UPS. SO IF THEY CAN FINISH,
THEY CAN PUSH THE TEMPO, AND TIGHTEN UP THAT
DEFENSE, THEY MAY GET THE SAME RESULT THEY HAD EARLIER
THIS YEAR AGAINST GLENDALE. AND YEAH, AND WHEN YOU
TALK ABOUT WOMACK TOO, SHE OBVIOUSLY LEADS THE
CONFERENCE, LIKE YOU SAID, IN REBOUNDING, BUT
NUMBER ONE IN DEFENSIVE REBOUNDING AS WELL, WHICH
YOU ALWAYS HEAR COACHES SAY, IT COMES DOWN TO
KEEPING A TEAM TO ONE OPPORTUNITY AND GETTING
THE BALL BACK DOWN THE COURT TO SEE IF THEY
CAN SCORE AND GIVE THIS GLENDALE TEAM
SOME PROBLEMS. WELL, THAT WILL DO IT FOR
JEFF AND I HERE IN THE PRE. AND WHEN WE GET BACK,
WE’LL HAVE THE STARTING LINEUPS AND OPENING
TIP HERE FROM GLENDALE COMMUNITY COLLEGE. BACK HERE AT GLENDALE
COMMUNITY COLLEGE WHERE WE ARE GETTING SET FOR THIS
MATCH UP BETWEEN THE LADY COUGARS AND THE LADY
GAUCHOS OF GLENDALE COMMUNITY COLLEGE. BACK HERE WITH JEFF
LOWERY, I’M MIKE CAROTENUTO AT THIS
NATIONAL JUNIOR COLLEGE ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION MATCH
UP HERE IN THE ARIZONA COMMUNITY COLLEGE
ATHLETIC CONFERENCE. AS THE TEAMS ARE BEING
INTRODUCED REAL QUICK, I WILL GET TO THE STARTING
LINEUPS FOR THE VISITING COUGARS IN THEIR ALL
BLUE UNIFORMS, ROYAL BLUE UNIFORMS, WHITE TRIM
AND WHITE NUMBERS. NUMBER 3 IS A
FRESHMAN IVY COTTON. NUMBER REMEMBER IS
10 RAEGENE WOMACK. NUMBER 15 IS
ANDREA GOULETTE. NUMBER 24 IS
LIZETTE CANTU. AND NUMBER 32, THE 5’10
FRESHMAN KAYLA CLARK FOR THE LADY GAUCHOS: NUMBER
15 IS A 5’7 SOPHOMORE, KIARA MORGAN. NUMBER 20 IS A 5’8
SOPHOMORE, THAT’S JADA SMITH. EMINA LOLIC, NUMBER
21, IS A 5’3 SOPHOMORE. AND NUMBER 25 — OR SORRY,
25 JORDYN KESLER-KLEIN. AND NUMBER 32
IS ALEXIS SMITH. AS JUMP BALL THERE,
EARLIER ON, A VIOLATION. IT WILL BE GAUCHOS BALL,
AS TAKING IT IN WILL BE JADA SMITH. AND AGAIN, THIS GAME A
LITTLE BIT BIGGER FOR GLENDALE THAN IT IS
FOR SOUTH MOUNTAIN, BUT TALKING TO COACH BRYON
JACKSON, IT’S A TEAM THAT’S FOUGHT
IT’S THIRD SEASON. AN INTERESTINGLY ENOUGH,
HIS FIRST SEASON HE TOOK OVER ONE DAY BEFORE THE
SEASON STARTED, JEFF, PRETTY TOUGH THING TO DO,
ESPECIALLY AT THE COLLEGE LEVEL. A 3 POINTER IS UP AND NO
GOOD THERE BY MORGAN, BUT THE GAUCHOS GET
THE REBOUND. AND AIR BALL
IS SHOT THERE. THAT WAS BY SMITH. HERE COME THE LADY COUGARS
RIGHT BACK DOWN THE COURT, WORKING IT DOWN LOW. AND A FOUL-LINE JUMPER
IS UP AND IN BY WOMACK. WELL, THE LEADING SCORER
GETS THE FIRST POINTS. WELL, THAT’S GOT TO MAKE
HER COACH FEEL AWFULLY GOOD TO COME OUT AND HIT
THAT MEDIUM-RANGE JUMPER. THAT’S WHERE SHE’S DEADLY. A LITTLE BIT OF PRESSURE
RIGHT THERE, BUT WEAVING HER WAY THROUGH
TRAFFIC IS EMINA LOLIC. SHE’LL SEND THE BALL OUT
TO JORDYN KESLER-KLEIN, PICKS UP HER DRIBBLE. OH, NICE BASELINE MOVE,
BUT THE BALL IS STOLEN THERE BY KAYLA CLARK AND
BACK THE OTHER WAY COME THE COUGARS. AND WE HAVE A TURNOVER. AND UNFORTUNATELY, THAT’S
NUMBER — THAT’S ACTUALLY IVY COTTON. SHE WAS LISTED AS AT
NUMBER 3, BUT SHE IS NUMBER 1. SO THAT’S IVY
COTTON — PARDON ME. YOU KNOW THE GLARING
ADVANTAGE HERE TONIGHT FOR GLENDALE, OBVIOUSLY SOUTH
MOUNTAIN IS PLAYING WITH ONLY 7 PLAYERS. SO TWO PLAYERS COMING OFF
THE BENCH ALREADY AT A DISADVANTAGE, BUT AGAIN,
THIS IS A GAME OF HEART. YEAH, AND WE TALKED — I
KNOW IT’S HAPPENED IN THE PAST, NOBODY IS GOING TO — YOU
DON’T WANT ANY INJURIES. NOBODY IS GOING TO FEEL
BAD FOR A COACH — A TEAM, I SHOULD SAY, NOT A
COACH, BUT A TEAM. THERE’S A LOT OF INJURIES. YOU GOT ROLL THE
BALL OUT AND PLAY. AND THESE GIRLS FOR COACH
BRYON JACKSON, LIKE I SAID, IN HIS THIRD SEASON
HAVE PLAYED VERY HARD. UNDER 20 ON AT THE
SHOT CLOCK NOW. THAT’S ARIEL NELSON, WHO
WAS HANDLING THE BALL AND IN THE GAME, BUT THEY
TURN THE BALL OVER. HERE COMES JORDYN
KESLER-KLEIN WHO GOES TO HER LEFT, LOSES CONTROL,
AND WE’LL HAVE A JUMP BALL. AND IT LOOKS LIKE IT
WILL BE COUGARS BALL. WELL, I THINK THE
INTERESTING MATCH UP EARLIER ON, AND YOU DON’T
SEE THIS VERY OFTEN, WHERE THE TWO TOP SCORERS ARE
GUARDING ONE ANOTHER. AND THAT’S THE
SITUATION HERE TONIGHT. NUMBER 10 FOR SOUTH
MOUNTAIN IN THE BLUE, RAEGENE WOMACK. WE MENTIONED AT THE TOP OF
THE BROADCAST, 12 POINTS OVER — 12 POINT A GAME
AND THE LEADING REBOUND. SHE IS A PRESENCE. WELL, IT’S A SOUTH
MOUNTAIN TEAM THAT’S GIVING UP 61.2
POINTS PER GAME. GLENDALE ACTUALLY, JEFF,
DEFENSIVELY THE SEASON GOT ON, YOU TALKED ABOUT, IT’S
GOT A LITTLE BIT STRONGER, ONLY GIVING UP 52.9, BUT
FOR GLENDALE THEY’VE ALSO GIVEN UP 53.6. AS WE COME THE OVER WAY,
HERE COMES KESLER-KLEIN, DISHES IT IN THE CORNER
TO SMITH, GOES BASELINE. NOW AT CORNER THREE
UP AND OFF THE RIM. AND THAT WAS NO GOOD BY
ALEXIS SMITH, THE 5’7 SOPHOMORE. WELL, JADA SMITH IS THE
ONE THAT’S GOING TO HAVE TO — YOU KNOW, THE
DRIBBLE-DRIVE GAME IS SO IMPORTANT FOR GLENDALE. THAT WAS A BEAUTIFUL
PASS, A BEAUTIFUL LOOK. SHE COULD HAVE WENT UP
STRONG FOR THE LAY UP, CHOSE TO GO FOR THE
OPEN MAN IN THE CORNER. AND NOW A THREE FOR THE
CORNER, OFF THE INBOUND, NO GOOD. AND THE REBOUND COMES
RIGHT DOWN THERE TO LIZETTE CANTU,
THE FAST BREAK. AND IVY COTTON — I SAID
IVORY, PARDON ME — BUT IVY COTTON BACK IN THE
GAME, A LITTLE BANGED UP, GOT THE ATTENTION SHE
NEEDED AND DRAWS A FOUL. THAT WILL BE THE FIRST ON
JADA SMITH, BUT COTTON, YEAH, GOT A
LITTLE BANGED UP. NOT BASHFUL ABOUT DRAWING
CONTACT THERE, JEFF. YEAH, SHE WENT STRONG,
TRIED TO FINISH STRONG THERE, GOT HACKED PRETTY
WELL RIGHT AT THE BASKET. AND THE FREE
THROW, OH, NO GOOD. AND SHE MISSES
THE FIRST ONE. AND YOU TALK ABOUT FREE
THROW — YEAH, GLENDALE — JEFF, THAT SOUTH MOUNTAIN
VERY, VERY HIGH — SECOND IN THE LEAGUE IN FREE
THROW PERCENTAGE THIS YEAR. YEAH, THEY ARE AT 71% FROM
THE FREE-THROW LINE, BUT SAW IVY ABLE TO GET
THE SECOND ONE THERE. SO THE TEAM GOES
UP 3 TO NOTHING. AND NOW GLENDALE, WE’RE
GOING TO SEE A SUB FROM COACH NIEBLING COMING
IN THAT IS NUMBER 12. AND THAT’S MAREENA DENHAM,
FIRST OFF THE BENCH. YEAH, NUMBER 12, AN
EX-FACTOR PLAYER HERE, 6TH MAN OFF THE BENCH. AS WOMACK GOES IN STRONG
AND HAD A — THAT WAS A GREAT DEFENSIVE
PLAY BY KLEIN. KESLER-KLEIN IS GOING TO
HAVE TO DO A LOT OF THAT, NICE PRESSURE BY COTTON. SHE IS ALL OVER
ALEXIS SMITH. NOW THE BALL GETS SENT
OVER TO KESLER-KLEIN. AND THE GAUCHOS, GOOD
MOVEMENT EARLY ON. GOES OUT IN THE CORNER,
NICE BASELINE WITH THE RIGHT HAND ON THE
BASELINE THERE. SOLID SHOT BY DENHAM,
GETTING THE FIRST POINTS OF THE GAME FOR
THE LADY GAUCHOS. WELL, DENHAM, SHE’S A
SPARK PLUG OFF THE BENCH. AND THEY’RE GOING TO NEED SOME
POINTS FROM HER TONIGHT. WILD SHOT THERE IS
REBOUNDED BY GOULETTE. REBOUNDED BY SOUTH
MOUNTAIN, THE FOLLOW NO GOOD. AND NOW HERE COMES
KESLER-KLEIN PUSHING THE TEMPO AND SHE’LL DROP
IT BACK OFF TO LOLIC. NOW KESLER-KLEIN FOR 3. JUST SHORT. AND THE REBOUND COMES
DOWN TO THE GOULETTE. WELL, WE TALKED ABOUT WITH
THE COACH BEFORE THE GAME HOW IMPORTANT TRANSITION. GOULETTE RUNNING THE POINT
THAT TIME AS WOMACK GOT AWAY WITH A LITTLE CARRY. I WAS ABOUT TO SAY,
DRIBBLE A LITTLE HIGH THERE, BUT NOW COTTON
GOES TO THE RACK. COMES UP SHORT. AND NICE REBOUND. AND THE FOUL. KAYLA CLARK DOING
THE JOB UNDERNEATH. AND NOW THE FOUL WILL
BE ON KIARA MORGAN. IF YOU’RE SOUTH MOUNTAIN,
YOU GOT TO LIKE GETTING — I KNOW IT’S ONLY 2 FOULS
EARLY ON, JEFF, BUT COACH JACKSON HAS TO LIKE THAT,
GETTING THEM IN A LITTLE BIT OF FOUL TROUBLE AS
WOMACK NOW COMES OUT. SHE’LL GET A LITTLE
OF THE BREATHER. AS ARIEL NELSON
CHECKS BACK IN. SHE GETS SWATTED ON THE
THE WAY TO THE RIM BY KESLER-KLEIN. AND LOOK AT THAT
KESLER-KLEIN IS ABLE TO STAY INBOUNDS. AND YEAH, HER
SECOND BLOCK. AND HERE COME THE
GAUCHOS AGAIN. LOLIC SWING IT OVER IN THE
CORNER TO ALEXIS SMITH FOR 3. IT’S SHORT AGAIN. NICE REBOUND BY GOULETTE,
AS SHE IGNITES THE BREAK, GETS IT TO IVY COTTON. OH, CONTACT, BUT NO CALL. AND IT GOES OUT. I LIKE THAT NO CALL, JEFF,
BECAUSE I THINK THEY WERE KIND OF BOTH IN A LITTLE
BIT OF NO-MAN’S LAND. SHE DIDN’T GO AT COTTON. BUT, BOY, YOU GOT TO
LIKE BRYON JACKSON. HE’S GOT TO BE LOVING THE
GAME SO FAR WITH GOULETTE GETTING OUT IN TRANSITION. AND RIGHT NOW, IF YOU GOT
IVY COTTON TO KIND OF REEL IT IN A LITTLE BIT ON THE
FAST BREAK, SHE’S FORCED IT UP THREE TIMES. SHE GOT FOULED ONCE. AND LOOK AT THAT PASS DOWN
LOW, BEATING EVERYBODY. SOLID, SOLID MOVE
THERE BY DENHAM. HER 4TH POINT OFF THE
BENCH AND NOW THE GAUCHOS WITH THE 1-POINT
LEAD, 4-3. I AM WITH YOU
ON THAT, JEFF. COTTON CAN FORCE
THE TEMPO . MOVING THE BALL WELL. THEY’RE NOT RUSHING SHOTS. THIS GLENDALE DEFENSE,
AGAIN, HAS JUST BEEN VERY — NICE HANDOFF
THERE IN THE SCREEN. AND LOOK AT THAT
WITH THE LEFT HAND. AND THERE IS THE
LACK OF FINISH. THERE’S THE LACK OF
FINISHING THERE THAT WE TALKED TO THEIR HEAD
COACH BEFORE THE GAME. WOMACK GETTING
UP OFF THE BENCH. SHE’S GETTING SET TO
CHECK IN BACK IN, AS THE 3 POINTER BY JORDYN
KESLER-KLEIN FROM THE GAUCHOS, NO GOOD. AND THE REBOUND THROWN
UP COURT BY GOULETTE. WELL, MIKE, I THINK ONE OF
THE REASONS YOU’RE GOING TO SEE A LOT OF
SUBSTITUTING BECAUSE THE FACT THAT SOUTH ONLY HAS
2 EXTRA PLAYERS ON THE BENCH. SO THEY WANT TO KEEP
WOMACK LEGS STRONG, IF THEY’RE GOING TO
STAY IN THIS GAME. YEAH, WITH ONLY 7 PLAYER,
LIKE JEFF ELUDED TO, VERY TOUGH. ALMOST TURNED IT OVER
THERE, BUT THEY GET IT BACK. 3 ON THE SHOT CLOCK. SHOT HAS GOT TO GO UP. GOULETTE PUTS UP A THREE. AND THE WHISTLE — SHOT
CLOCK SOMEHOW GOT — IT WENT FROM 3 TO 30 IN AN
INSTANCE, SO I DON’T KNOW, MAYBE THAT’S HOME-COURT
ADVANTAGE OR THE RATS ARE IN THE EQUIPMENT, YOU KNOW, THE
MICE ARE IN THE EQUIPMENT. WOW, JEFF LOWERY,
SHOTS FIRED THERE. IT HAPPENS SOMETIMES. IT MALFUNCTIONS. IN THE OLD DAYS WE SAID THAT WAS
THE HOME-COURT ADVANTAGE. OH, ABSOLUTELY. RAEGENE WOMACK
WILL COME IN. GOING OUT WILL BE KAYLA
CLARK, 5’10 FRESHMAN WHO HAS BEEN VERY SOLID
DOWN LOW EARLY ON. AGAIN HERE, WOMEN’S
BASKETBALL TWO YEARS AGO CHANGED TO QUARTER. SO HERE IN THE FIRST
QUARTER, 4 TEN-MINUTE QUARTERS. THE MEN’S GAMES
STAYED WITH HALVES. A CATCH AND SHOOT
FROM THE CORNER. AND THAT’S NO GOOD BY
CANTU, BUT SOUTH MOUNTAIN ABLE TO GET THE REBOUND. WHO ELSE? IVY COTTON, THE SMALLEST
PLAYER ON THE COURT. MAYBE A LITTLE BIT
OF CONTACT THERE. NICE REBOUND BY WOMACK. TOO FAR INTO THE HOOP,
HITS THE RIM TWICE, A THIRD TIME, AND
SHE GETS THE HOOP. WHAT A GREAT HUSTLE
THERE BY RAEGENE WOMACK. IT WAS TREMENDOUS DEFENSE
BY JORDYN KESLER-KLEIN. SHE HAD HER THIRD BLOCK
IN THAT FRAY, PICKS UP HER FIRST FOUL. AND THAT WAS TREMENDOUS
DEFENSE, BUT THE TENACITY OF WOMACK. SHE HAD THE STRONG LEGS. SHE JUST CAME OUT OF THE
GAME AND SAT FOR A COUPLE OF MINUTES AND WENT UP
STRONG AND CHANCE TO GO WITH A 3-POINT PLAY. NOW YOU CAN SEE WHY
SHE LEADS THE LEAGUE IN REBOUNDS LIKE WE TALKED
ABOUT IN PREGAME, JEFF. AS SHE HITS
THE FREE THROW. AGAIN, THE DEFENSE WAS
RIGHT THERE, LIKE YOU ELUDED TO. AND NOW THAT TIME
KESLER-KLEIN WILL TURN IT OVER, BUT SHE JUST GOT THE
REBOUND, GATHERED HERSELF, AND I LIKE HOW SHE SCOOTED
BACK A LITTLE BIT, JEFF, JUST TO TAKE THAT LITTLE
DRIBBLE TO GIVE HERSELF A BETTER ANGLE. AND NOW THE JUMPER
FROM JUST INSIDE THE THREE-POINT LINE, AND NO
GOOD THERE FOR NELSON. GAUCHOS COME DOWN WITH
THE REBOUND AND STROLLING ACROSS HALF COURT WILL
BE EMINA LOLIC, 5’3 SOPHOMORE. JUMPS IT OFF TO
KESLER-KLEIN AND SWING IT TO SMITH. AND AGAIN, GLENDALE AND
COACH NIEBLING, NOT REALLY LACKING ON THE
MOTION, GOOD MOVEMENT. AND AGAIN, IT’S KIND OF A
MATCH-UP ZONE YOU CAN SAY THAT SOUTH MOUNTAIN
IS PLAYING. KNOCKED AWAY BY WOMACK
INTO THE HANDS OF CLARK — OR I’M SORRY, NELSON, AS
SHE BRINGS IT UP COURT, GOES ALL THE WAY,
ROLLS OFF THE RIM. NO GOOD THERE. TRYING TO GET THE REBOUND. AND JEFF, TO YOUR POINT
EARLY ON, IF YOU’RE COACH JACKSON YOU LIKE
THEIR HUSTLE. IF YOU’RE COACH NIEBLING,
YOU’VE GOT TO BE FRUSTRATED HERE. A LITTLE TOO MANY
TURNOVERS AND NOT RACKING UP ENOUGH REBOUNDS. OH, AND THEY’RE GOING TO
SAY STEPPING OUT OF BOUNDS WAS ALEXIS SMITH. GLENDALE HAS HAD A LOT OF
GOOD LOOKS SO FAR IN THIS GAME FOR THE FIRST. NOW WE’RE AT A 3:24
MARK HERE IN THE FIRST. THEY’VE HAD A
LOT GOOD LOOKS. THEY’VE HAD A LOT
OF OPEN LOOKS. THEY HAVEN’T REALLY
KNOCKED DOWN THE OUTSIDE SHOTS YET. SO, YOU KNOW, THE ONE
THING THAT SOUTH MOUNTAIN WILL HAVE TO ADJUST TO IF
GLENDALE STARTS TO GET HOT FROM THE OUTSIDE. WELL, SOUTH
MOUNTAIN UP 6-4. 3:15 LEFT TO GOING HERE
IN THE OPENING FRAME. AS WOMACK GOES INTO
THE LANE, PICKS UP HER DRIBBLE, GETS IT
OUT TO COTTON. AND SPEEDSTER COTTON
HAS NO PROBLEM DRIVING. SHE STEPS BACK, DOES JUST
THAT DISHES IT TO CLARK. AND CLARK MISSES. YOU CAN SEE WHY SOUTH
MOUNTAIN HAS STRUGGLED MILDLY THIS YEAR, THEY
JUST SIMPLY CANNOT FINISH. THEY SHOULD BE UP
BY 10 RIGHT NOW. AS COTTON GOES DOWN. AND WELL, THEY ARE NOT
AS — JORDYN KESLER-KLEIN GETS HER FIRST
BASKET OF THE GAME. AND WE ARE ALL KNOTTED UP
AT 6, 2:45 LEFT TO GO IN THE FIRST. AS BRINGING THE BALL UP
THE COURT, GOULETTE IS BACK IN THE GAME GETS
IT DOWN TO CLARK. SHE’LL SWING IT OVER TO
CANTU, PUTS UP A 3, NO GOOD. GETTING THE REBOUND THERE
UNCONTESTED WAS MAREENA DENHAM. AND DENHAM IS GIVING THEM
A SHOT IN THE ARM SINCE COMING INTO THE GAME A
COUPLE OF MINUTES AGO. AND THE 3 IS UP AND
IN BY ELLA SEGAL. ELLA SEGAL, A SMOOTH,
LEFT-HANDED SHOT OUT OF TEL AVIV, ISRAEL. AND THAT’S THE LARGEST
LEAD RIGHT NOW FOR THE GAUCHOS AT 3, 9-6. OH, AND TURNOVER THERE. AND WOMACK WENT FOR THE
BALL, COMMITTED THE FOUL. YOU DON’T LIKE TO SEE YOUR
PLAYERS GET FOULS, BUT, JEFF, THAT WAS A GOOD ONE. THAT STOPPED A FAST BREAK
AS SHE WAS TRYING FOR THE STEAL, BUT JUST A LITTLE
TOO MUCH CONTACT THERE. YES, CLARK IS — OR NO
THEY’RE GOING TO ASSESS THAT TO WOMACK. 9-6 THE SCORE. YOU SEE THE GAUCHOS UP. NICE CUT IN THE LANE
BY ALEXIS SMITH. SHE GETS FOULED. AND THAT MIGHT BE TWO
QUICK ONES ON WOMACK. YES, IT IS. WE’RE GOING TO SEE
DANIELLE SAENZ FOR THE FIRST TIME, 5’8, HARD-NOSE
PLAYER OUT OF MARCOS DE NIZA, WHICH IS IN TEMPE,
ARIZONA, COMING IN THE FOR THE SOUTH. AS THE FREE THROW IS UP
AND IN BY ALEXIS SMITH. HER FIRST POINTS
OF THE GAME. SMITH ONE OF THOSE
PLAYERS, YOU KNOW, SOMETIMES YOU CAN’T PUT A
POSITION ON HER, YOU KNOW, SHE’S A GUARD. SHE’S A FORWARD. AND A PERFECT WING PLAYER. SO GOULETTE WITH THE BALL
NOW, GOES ACROSS HALF COURT. GOES TO HER LEFT, BALL
GETS KNOCKED AWAY THERE BY MAREENA DENHAM. YEAH, WATCH FOR 15 HERE
INBOUND THE BALL TO GET THAT TRANSITION
GAME GOING. YOU LIKE TO SEE IVY COTTON
CREATE FROM THE DRIBBLE DRIVE, AND THAT’S EXACTLY
WHAT SHE DID, BUT SHE FORCED IT UP AGAIN INSTEAD
OF MAYBE LOOKING FOR THE WIDE OPEN 32, KAYLA CLARK. WELL, CLARK WAS WIDE OPEN
THERE, BUT FOR COTTON SHE WASN’T ABLE TO SEE
OVER THAT DEFENSE. AND, MIKE, SHE’S GETTING
THE PENETRATION OFF THAT DRIBBLE DRIVE, BUT
IT’S JUST THE LACK OF FINISHING. AND HERE COMES SOUTH. AND ALEXIS SMITH WITH
THE TURNOVER THERE. GOULETTE BRINGS IT UP
COURT, GOES RIGHT TO THE RIM, AND GETS SHUT
DOWN BY DENHAM. NICE BLOCK BY DENHAM. SHE’S ABLE TO
STAY INBOUNDS. GETS IT UP TO ALEXIS
SMITH, TRYING TO GO BACK THE OVER WAY, A LITTLE
CONTACT, NO GOOD. DENHAM WITH THE
REBOUND THERE. AND, OH, AND
SHE FELL DOWN. AND THEY’RE GOING TO
SAY THERE WAS A FOUL. AND WILL BE ON NUMBER
32, KAYLA CLARK. THAT’S HER SECOND. SO WOMACK HAS GOT 2. CLARK HAS GOT 2. AND THE TEAM WITH THE
SHORT BENCH, IT IS DEFINITELY TOUGH TO GET IN FOUL
TROUBLE IN THE FIRST QUARTER. AND REMEMBER WHEN YOU GET
— A TEAM GETS TO 5 TEAM FOULS, YOU’RE
SHOOTING IN THE BONUS. AND THE WOMEN’S SIDE PER
QUARTER, SO IT DOES — IT WILL RESET. OH, CATCH AND SHOOT
THERE, NO GOOD. AS ELLA SEGAL IS OPEN,
HAD RIGHT IDEA, BUT SOUTH MOUNTAIN COMES DOWN
WITH IT INTO THE GAME. YOU SEE LIZETTE CANTU
BACK IN THE GAME. GOES TO THE RACK. BUT AGAIN, WE’LL
HAVE A JUMP BALL. IT LOOKS LIKE CANTU WAS
GRABBING HER LIKE ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF HER
NECK, LIKE SHE GOT HIT. AND IF I WAS GOING TO SAY,
THAT LOOKS LIKE A REALLY OUT OF CONTROL SHOT. MAYBE THERE WAS A LITTLE
CONTACT, BUT JUST DIDN’T GET CALLED THERE. WELL, THERE WAS CONTACT. IT WAS THE HAND OF
ELLA SEGAL FOR GLENDALE BLOCKING THAT SHOT. AND THE GAUCHOS IN RESULT,
ALTERNATE POSSESSION. THEY GET IT BACK HERE. AND THEY HAVE THEIR
LARGEST LEAD OF THE GAME SO FAR, MIKE, AT 5. JORDYN KESLER-KLEIN WILL
CHECK BACK INTO THE GAME. AS LOLIC IS TRYING TO
GET ACROSS HALF COURT. SHE’S ABLE TO
DO JUST THAT. THE FINAL 37 SECONDS
OF THIS FIRST QUARTER, GAUCHOS UP BY 5,
LIKE JEFF SAID. AND THE 3 BY LOLIC FROM
THE TOP OF THE KEY. AND SHE BURIES IT. EMINA LOLIC GETS
HER FIRST POINTS. AND THE GAUCHOS UP 14-6. SOUTH MOUNTAIN CAN HOLD
FOR THE LAST SHOT AS THE SHOT CLOCK IS OFF,
BUT AN OPEN THREE. OH, RUSHED THERE
BY CANTU, NO GOOD. SEGAL GETS THE REBOUND AND GETS
TRIPPED UP BY IVY COTTON. WHAT A BOOST THAT SEGAL
AND LOLIC HAVE GIVEN THE GLENDALE GAUCHOS, COACH
NIEBLING ON THE GLENDALE SIDE. THEY ARE BATTLING FOR
THEIR PLAYOFF LIVE, GLENDALE, THAT IS, AS WE
MENTIONED AT THE TOP OF THE BROADCAST, THEY
COME IN, MIKE, TWO GAMES BEHIND, FIVE GAMES LEFT
TO GO IN THIS SCHEDULE, COUNTING TONIGHT’S GAME. SEGAL HITS THE
FIRST FREE THROW. AND YEAH, AGAIN,
TALKING ABOUT IT. IT MEANS A LITTLE
MORE TO GLENDALE. AND SHE GETS
BOTH FREE THROWS. SO 5 POINTS FOR
HER OFF THE BENCH. THEY ARE UP BY 10, 16-6. 9 SECONDS LEFT TO GO. GOULETTE ACROSS LOLIC,
BOTHERING HER, GETS A SCREEN, GOULETTE
GOES TO HER LEFT. BACK TO HER RIGHT. SENDS IT DOWN
LOW TO SAENZ. TRYING TO GET A SHOT UP. BALL GETS KNOCKED AWAY AND
FITTINGLY ENDS UP IN THE HANDS OF MAREENA DENHAM,
WHO CAME OFF THE BENCH. AND IT LOOKED LIKE WITH
HER FIST SHOT, STARTED TO SPARK THAT
OFFENSIVE, JEFF. SO THE END OF ONE, 16-6,
GLENDALE LEADING OVER SOUTH MOUNTAIN. WE’LL STEP ASIDE, SECOND
QUARTER COMING UP HERE ON MCTV SPORTS. BACK HERE AT GLENDALE
COMMUNITY COLLEGE, 16-6 IS THE SCORE, ALONGSIDE
JEFF LOWERY, I’M MIKE CAROTENUTO HERE ON MCTV
SPORTS, NATIONAL JUNIOR COLLEGE WOMEN’S
BASKETBALL. AND JEFF, IT IS A GOOD
START TO THE GAME FOR SOUTH MOUNTAIN, BUT
GLENDALE DENHAM COMES OFF THE BENCH, THE PREVERBAL 6
MAN, HITS HER FIRST SHOT. AND FROM THAT POINT ON IT
JUST SPARKED THE GAUCHOS. YEAH, THEY GOT A GREAT
LIFT FROM LOLIC, SEGAL, BOTH HITTING THREE
POINTERS COMING OFF THE BENCH, BUT, YOU KNOW, THE
KEY TO THAT BIG RUN BY THE GAUCHOS, YOU KNOW, THEY
BUILT UP THEIR LARGEST LEAD OF 10, AT 16-6, WAS
THE MULTITUDE OF TURNOVERS AND THE LACK OF FINISHING
BY SOUTH MOUNTAIN, TWO AREAS THAT THEY
CAN CLEAN UP. IT’S GOING TO BE A
COMPETITIVE GAME. AND GLENDALE FINISHED
THAT FIRST QUARTER ON A 12-NOTHING RUN. YEAH, 16-6 THE SCORE. AND WOMACK HAS GOT 5 OF
THE 6 POINTS, THE ONLY ONE BY COTTON. AND AGAIN, FIRST SHOT OF
THE SECOND QUARTER, NO GOOD, AS THE FOULS DO
RESET THOUGH, LIKE JEFF HAD SAID. SO IT WON’T BY THE ONE
AND ONE FOR GLENDALE. AND LOLIC SHE KNIFES
THROUGH THE LANE LIKE COTTON HAS BEEN DOING, BUT
SHE COMES OFF THE GLASS AND SOUTH MOUNTAIN
CAN’T HANDLE THE PASS. THERE IS GOULETTE AND
THEY TURN IT OVER. YEAH, 8TH TURNOVER OF THIS
FIRST HALF SO FAR BY THE LADIES IN BLUE. AND THEY CERTAINLY — YOU
KNOW, YOU CAN’T BLAME THE FATIGUE FACTOR, BECAUSE
WE’RE ONLY IN THE EARLIER STAGES OF
QUARTER NUMBER 2. OH, ALMOST TURNED OVER. AND IT IS. COTTON HAS IT. OH, CUTS LOLIC OFF, BUT
NOW SHE LETS LOLIC GET IN FRONT OF HER, PUTS A SHOT
UP, AND THE REBOUND BY WHO ELSE? WOMACK. AND SHE PUTS IT UP AND
IN FOR HER 7TH POINT, JEFF. AND NOW IT IS A 16-8 GAME. WELL, WOMACK, YOU CAN
SEE, SHE IS TOUGH. AND NOW SHE COMES
RIGHT BACK DOWN. COTTON GETS THE REBOUND. STILL CAN’T BUY A
BASKET UNDERNEATH. AND AGAIN, I THINK WITH
COTTON, SHE HAS GOT TO LEARN — SHE’S PROBABLY
THE FASTEST PLAYER WE HAVE SEEN THIS YEAR. AND HER ABILITY TO
GET INSIDE AND GET THE PENETRATION, BUT SHE HAS
GOT TO REALLY DISTRIBUTE — DO A MUCH BETTER
JOB DISTRIBUTING THE BASKETBALL. AND OUR REFEREES, YOU WANT
TO GIVE THEM A SHOUT OUT: MIKE BARBER, RICK SHOWERS
IS THE LEAD OFFICIAL, AND THEN MIKE BARBER
AND TREA DANIELS. LOOK AT AT THAT,
GOING DOWN LOW. AND THAT’S JORDYN
KESLER-KLEIN WITH HER FOURTH POINT, JEFF. AND WELL, YOU TALK ABOUT
FINISHING AT THE RIM AND NOT FINISHING AT THE RIM,
AND FOR GLENDALE, THEY’VE BEEN ABLE TO
FINISH AT THE RIM. WELL, I LIKE THAT SHOT
THERE BY KAYLA CLARK, BECAUSE IT WAS
JUST A QUICK PASS. GLENDALE COMING DOWN. AND LOOK AT THE QUICK PASS
DOWN THE COURT RIGHT AWAY. AND MAREENA DENHAM
STAYS IN THE GAME. AND SHE NOW HAS HER 6TH
POINT, AS THEY ARE UP 20-10 AS BRINGING IT
WILL BE ANDREA GOULETTE. SHE GOES TO HER RIGHT
— OH, AND IT LOOKS LIKE THE FOUL WILL GO ON LOLIC. THAT’S HER FIRST. COTTON COMING OUT
FOR THE FIRST TIME. YOU’VE GOT TO
SAVE THOSE LEGS. AND AGAIN, I’LL TELL YOU,
THIS SOUTH MOUNTAIN TEAM CAN FINISH. THEY CAN STAY WITH THESE
— SOME OF THESE TEAMS IN THE ACCAC. AND RIGHT THERE, WE’RE
GETTING A REBOUND, NOT FINISHING, AND NOW THE
BALL SWUNG ACROSS COURT. CANTU, WITH HER
LEFT HAND, PUTS IT UP. IT MIGHT NOT BE
HER DOMINATE HAND. SEGAL WILL PICK UP HER
FIRST FOUL AND TEAM SECOND OF THE SECOND QUARTER. AS CANTU WILL GO TO
THE FREE-THROW LINE. AND SINCE SHE WAS IN THE
ACT OF SHOOTING, WILL GET TO PUT UP TWO. AND SINKS THE FIRST ONE. AND SCORING POINTS WITHOUT
THE CLOCK RUNNING WILL BE VERY HUGE FOR
THE LADY COUGARS. AGAIN, IF THEY CAN GET
THIS GLENDALE TEAM IN FOUL TROUBLE, THEY ARE GOING
TO HAVE SOME COME UP WITH SOME STOPS AND AGAIN HAVE
AN ANSWER FOR EMINA LOLIC. AND THE SECOND FREE THROW,
OH, ROLLS OUTS FOR CANTU. SO IT MAKES IT 22-11 AS
ALEXIS SMITH BRINGS IT UP THE COURT, BEATS
HER DEFENDER. OH, TRYING TO DISH IT TO
KESLER-KLEIN, WHO HAD THE RIGHT IDEA GETTING TO THE
RIM, JEFF, BUT A LITTLE BIT TOO FAR. AND SMITH THROWS
THE BALL AWAY. THIS IS WHAT YOU WANT TO
SEE OUT OF SOUTH MOUNTAIN RIGHT HERE IS GOULETTE
BRINGING THE BALL UP OUT OF BACK COURT AND FORCING
THE BALL IN TRANSITION. THAT WILL BE A TRAVEL. IT WILL BE A — AND WHEN
YOU LOOK AT THIS SOUTH MOUNTAIN TEAM, 3-POINT
FIELD GOAL PERCENTAGE — IN 3-POINT FIELD GOAL
PERCENTAGE, JEFF, THEY ARE DEAD LAST. 20% FROM BEHIND THE ARCH,
WHICH AS WE KNOW IN THIS DAY AND AGE, IS SUCH A
HUGE FACTOR OF THE GAME, NOT THEIR STRONG POINT. GETTING TO THE FREE-THROW
LINE, LIKE I SAID THOUGH, VERY MUCH THEIR STRONG POINT,
71%, SECOND IN THE CONFERENCE. AN ALEXIS SMITH WILL DRIVE
IT IN, A SHORT LITTLE JUMPER, BUT NO GOOD. NEITHER TEAM BETTER FROM
FURTHER AWAY, WHICH YOU WOULD THINK WOULD BE
A LITTLE BIT OPPOSITE. IT IS NOT. AS THAT BALL IS KNOCKED
AWAY BY KESLER-KLEIN. THE LADY COUGARS
WILL KEEP POSSESSION. IVY COTTON WILL
COME BACK IN. SHE WILL CHECK IN
FOR ARIEL NELSON. AND 21 SECONDS LEFT TO
GO ON THE SHOT CLOCK. AND, MIKE, YOU KNOW,
WHEN GLENDALE BUILT THAT 10-POINT LEAD, WHICH IS
AT 9 RIGHT NOW, IT WAS BECAUSE THEY KNOCKED DOWN
SOME THREE-POINT PLAYS. AND THEY STARTED TO HIT
THEIR OUTSIDE SHOTS. GOULETTE TRIED TO BOUNCE
IT TO WOMACK, WHERE IF SHE WOULD HAVE WENT UP TOP, IT
LOOKED LIKE WOMACK COULD HAVE CAUGHT IT AND WENT
STRAIGHT TO THE HOOP. SO A TURNOVER. AS MARY FAULKNER, WHO
CHECKED IN THE GAME, NUMBER 10, FOR GLENDALE. AGAIN GAUCHOS, IN THEIR
WHITE UNIFORMS, RED AND BLACK TRIM, RED NUMBERS. AS SEGAL PUTS UP
THE ELBOW JUMPER. AND IT IS GOOD. HER 7TH POINT OF THE GAME. AND WE GET A 30-SECOND
TIMEOUT BY BRYON JACKSON. AGAIN, THANKS FOR JOINING
US HERE ON MCTV, AS WE ARE COMING TO YOU FROM
GLENDALE COMMUNITY COLLEGE, JEFF LOWERY. I’M MIKE CAROTENUTO. AND AGAIN, YOU TALK ABOUT
FINISHING AT THE HOOP, JEFF, AS BASIC AS IT
SOUNDS, IT HAS GOT TO BE FRUSTRATING BECAUSE COTTON
— I MEAN, NO DISRESPECT TO LOLIC, MIGHT BE THE
FASTEST PLAYER ON THE COURT. SHE’S GOTTEN TO THE RIM,
BUT THE DEFENSE HAS DONE A GOOD JOB OF JUST SHUTTING
HER DOWN, NOT GIVING HER AN OUTLET TO PASS OR
SHE HASN’T BEEN ABLE TO FINISH. AND SHE’S NOT
THE ONLY ONE. I’M NOT TRYING TO SINGLE
HER OUT, BUT LIKE YOU SAID, THAT’S FRUSTRATING
FOR COACH JACKSON. FROM A DEFENSIVE
STANDPOINT, IT’S EASY TO GUARD SOMEBODY LIKE THAT,
BECAUSE YOU KNOW SHE IS LOOKING TO SCORE
FIRST AND PASS SECOND. IT SOUNDS LIKE
JEFF LOWERY’S GAME. I AM JUST KIDDING. IF YOU WERE ON MY TEAM,
YOUR POINTS PER GAME WOULD HAVE WENT UP
SIGNIFICANTLY. OH, I LOVE IT. THE ASSIST
ARTIST OVER HERE. AS WE GET BACK TO ACTION NOW,
SOUTH MOUNTAIN, LATE PRESSURE. THEY ARE ABLE TO BEAT IT AS IVY
COTTON GETS IT TO GOULETTE. BEAUTIFUL PASS TO WOMACK,
GOT AWAY WITH A WALK. I DON’T KNOW. I DIDN’T SEE IT. SO YOU KNOW IF I DON’T
SEE IT, IT’S NOT A WALK, BECAUSE YOU KNOW I AM
TERRIBLE AS SEEING THOSE, JEFF, YOU REMEMBER THAT. I KNOW WHEN I DO IT, I
CAN TELL YOU THAT MUCH. SO 22-13, THE SCORE. SEGAL WITH THE BALL. THE JUMP PASS DOWN
TO ALEXIS SMITH. LOOK AT THAT GOING ACROSS
THE LANE, OFF BALANCE. AND ALEXIS SMITH HAS HER
4TH POINT OF THE GAME, AS GLENDALE NOW UP 24-13,
WITH 6:05 LEFT TO GO HERE IN THE HALF. WELL, AND THEY
TURN IT OVER. SEGAL GETS IT TO UP
ALEXIS SMITH, LEADING HER. LOOK AT THAT HUSTLING
BACK IS GOULETTE. AND THEY’RE GOING TO SAY
IT WENT OFF ALEXIS SMITH. SO, LOWERY, YOU
GUESSED WRONG. I SAW YOU POINT. YOU THOUGHT IT
WAS GLENDALE BALL. YEP, I THOUGHT MAYBE
GOULETTE FORCED THAT ONE OUT, BUT THE OFFICIAL
WAS RIGHT ON TOP OF IT. I WAS WITH YOU, THOUGH,
I THOUGHT IT WAS GLENDALE BALL AS WELL. SO ANDREA GOULETTE WILL BRING
THE BALL BACK UP THE COURT. HER TEAM DOWN BY 11, AS
WOMACK GOES TO HER RIGHT, DRAWS CONTACT,
ROLLS OFF THE RIM. ALEXIS SMITH
HAD THE REBOUND. NOW ON THE FLOOR IS LOLIC. AND WE’RE GOING TO
CALL A JUMP BALL. IT LOOKS LIKE DEMOLITION
DERBY DOWN THERE, JEFF. AND YOU TALK —
OR ROLLER DERBY. YEAH, YOU TALKED ABOUT
BASKETBALL PLAYERS, ANY KIND OF PLAYER SACRIFICING
THEIR BODY, BUT WHEN YOU CAN HEAR THE THUD OF JUST
DRIVING ON THE FLOOR, YOU KNOW IT DOES
NOT FEEL GOOD. THERE IS NO GIVE
ON THESE COURTS. AND YOU HEARD IT THERE,
SO SOUTH MOUNTAIN ON ALTERNATING
POSSESSIONS HAS IT. NICE JUMP STOP, PUTTING IT
UP AND IN IS ARIEL NELSON, HER FIRST POINTS
OF THE GAME. SHE WENT UP STRONG,
GOING UP AGAINST A TOUGH DEFENDER, WHO ALREADY HAS
THERE BLOCKED SHOTS IN THIS GAME IN JORDYN
KESLER-KLEIN. SOUTH MOUNTAIN COULD
USE A NICE RUN HERE. BEFORE THAT BASKET THEY
HAD TRAILED BY 11, THE LARGEST LEAD SO
FAR FOR GLENDALE. AND NELSON GETS 3 THE
OLD-FASHION WAY, MAKING IT 24-16, AN 8-POINT GAME. AS LOLIC GOES RIGHT BY
COTTON AND THE JUMPER. AND IT’S AN AIR
BALL FOR FAULKNER. AND PUSHING IT UP THE
COURT RIGHT AWAY IS NELSON AS SHE’LL DUMP
IT OFF TO CANTU. WELL, SOUTH HAS TWO
PLAYERS THAT CAN BRING THE BALL UP OUT OF TRANSITION,
BUT JUST TOO MANY TURNOVERS RIGHT NOW, MIKE. OH, ANOTHER JUMP BALL. IT WILL BE GLENDALE BALL, THE
ALTERNATING POSSESSION. I USED TO NOT LIKE THE
POSSESSION ARROW IN COLLEGE. AND THEN I DID A GAME
A FEW YEARS BACK. AND LITERALLY IF THE REFS
HAD TO THROW IT, THEY WOULD HAVE — WHEN I
STARTED COUNTING, THEY WOULD HAVE HAD TO
THROW IT UP 22 TIMES. OH, REALLY. YEAH, SO ALTERNATING
POSSESSION IS A GOOD IDEA. YEAH. AS WE GET A FOUL. AND THAT WILL
BE ON GOULETTE. IT WAS ONLY THE FIRST
TEAM FOUL, THE SECOND DOWN BY 8, AS
CHECKING OUT IS ARIEL NELSON. CHECKING BACK IN IS KAYLA
CLARK FOR SOUTH MOUNTAIN. AND NOW CHECKING BACK IN IS
JADA SMITH, NUMBER 20, AND SHE’LL TAKE OUT LOLIC. SO LOLIC WILL GET A LITTLE
BIT OF REST, AS THAT’S HER FIRST REST. AND WELL, YOU’RE RIGHT. 7 PLAYERS, BUT ROTATING
CHAIRS IS ARIEL NELSON CHECKING IN. AND WOMACK NOW WILL
COME AND SIT DOWN. REMEMBER WOMACK CAME OUT
FOR ABOUT LESS THAN A MINUTE. WE DIDN’T TIME THE REST
PERIODS, BUT SHE CAME OUT IN THE FIRST QUARTER. YOU HAVE TO DO IT. YOU’VE GOT TO HAVE A GOOD
ROTATION TO SAVE THE LEGS WHEN YOU’RE PLAYING
WITH ONLY 7 PLAYERS. 3 IN THE CORNER. OH, THAT TIME IT WAS
UP AND GOOD BY JORDYN KESLER-KLEIN. SO A 27-16 THE SCORE. ANDREA GOULETTE WITH THE
BALL, GETS A SCREEN, GOES TO HER LEFT. OH, AND A LONG THREE OFF
THE SIDE OF THE RIM AND NO GOOD. AND LIZETTE CANTU, THE
5’7 SOPHOMORE, JEFF, NOT SCARED TO TAKE THE SHOT,
BUT AT THE SAME TIME FROM A TOLLESON HIGH SCHOOL,
AGAIN, THEY ARE LAST IN THE LEAGUE IN THE
CONFERENCE IN 3-POINT SHOOTING. AGAIN, I KNOW YOU WANT TO
GET BACK IN THE GAME, BUT IT’S THAT BATTLE FOR COACH
JACKSON, PROBABLY WANT TO STICK TO YOUR GAME PLAN. YOU CAN’T JUST START
THROWING UP THREES. AND YOU’RE
ABSOLUTELY RIGHT. AND YOU GOT TO KNOW YOUR
LIMITATIONS AS A SHOOTER. AND THEN FORCING UP
3’S, THIS IS THE WORST 3-POINT-SHOOTING
TEAM IN THE LEAGUE. OH, NICE BLOCK BY WOMACK. SORRY, JEFF. SHE JUST CHECKED BACK IN
— I WAS GOING TO SAY. AND LOOK AT THAT, THE
LEADING REBOUNDING OR LEADING SCORER. THAT’S A BLOCK. OH, AND THEY ARE
GOING TO CALL — WOW. ARE THEY GOING TO —
THAT’S ON KESLER-KLEIN. HOW WAS THAT NOT
A SHOOTING FOUL? I DO NOT KNOW, BUT IT IS
THE FOURTH IN THE SECOND QUARTER FOR THE GAUCHOS,
ONLY ONE FOR THE COUGARS. OH, DOWN LOW. AND OH, NICE MOVE. AND IT ROLLS AROUND
THE RIM FOR CLARK. I LOVE THESE MOVES
BY KAYLA CLARK. AND THAT FOUL — WELL, SHE
GOT A LITTLE FRUSTRATED. THAT’S HER THIRD
TEAM FOUL, JEFF. SHE’S TWO AWAY FROM
BEING OUT OF THIS GAME. WE WILL SEE OFF THE BENCH
THAT WILL BE DANIELLE SAENZ THE 5’8 FRESHMAN
THAT WILL CHECK IN FOR HER. GAUCHOS MOVING THE BALL. OH, AND TURNOVER THERE. MAYBE A LITTLE BIT OF A
PUSH THERE IS FLYING UP THE COURT IS NELSON. AND THE BLOCK
THERE ON FAULKNER. THAT’S HER FIRST. AND IT WILL BE THE TEAM’S
5 OF THE SECOND QUARTER. SO IT WILL BE
A ONE AND ONE. SHE’S SHOOTING TOO, BUT
THEY ARE IN THE ONE AND ONE RIGHT NOW — OH,
NO, IT IS JUST TWO. OH, IT IS DOUBLE. OKAY. SO SHE’LL SHOOT TWO. AND MISS THE FIRST ONE. YOU’VE BEEN DOING
TOO MANY MEN’S GAME. YEAH, YOU KNOW, BUT YOU
KNOW, THE THING IS — I THOUGHT FIVE WAS ONE AND
ONE AND THEN 7 WAS DOUBLE BONUS IN THE QUARTER. WELL, SHE WAS SHOOTING ANY
WAY, SO SHE WAS GETTING TWO SHOTS, NEVERTHELESS,
BUT SHE MISSES THE FIRST ONE. AND NOW NELSON WILL SEE
IF SHE CAN GET THE SECOND ONE. WELL, PUTS IT OVER
THE FRONT OF THE RIM, MR. LOWERY. AND SHE CUTS THE
LEAD TO 10, 27-17. SO NOW LOLIC
BACK IN THE GAME. LOLIC, NUMBER 21, FOR THE
GAUCHOS, A 5’3 SOPHOMORE. CONTACT THERE. BALL GETS TIPPED. AND IT’S TURNED OVER, AS
ARIEL NELSON NOW BRINGS IT UP BACK UP THE COURT, GETS
INTO THE LANE, OH, THEY DON’T STOP HER. AND THAT TAME NELSON FINISHES AT
THE NET, JEFF. 27-19. AND NOW, WELL, COACH
NIEBLING WILL TAKE A 30-SECOND TIMEOUT, JEFF. RIGHT THERE THEY
FINISHED IN TRANSITION. YOU GOT TO LIKE THAT,
IF YOU’RE COACH JACKSON. YEAH, I MEAN, THAT WAS AN
AGGRESSIVE DRIBBLE DRIVE FROM ONE END TO THE COURT
TO THE ANOTHER BY ARIEL NELSON, A 5’8 SOPHOMORE
OUT OF SHADOW RIDGE HIGH SCHOOL HERE IN ARIZONA. AND, YOU KNOW, THIS IS A
VERY IMPORTANT PART OF THE GAME FOR SOUTH MOUNTAIN,
BECAUSE, YOU KNOW, THEY PRETTY MUCH SINCE THE
LATTER STAGES OF THE FIRST PERIOD THEY’VE BEEN
DOWN AROUND 10 POINTS. SO IF THEY CAN CUT THIS
THING, TAKE A LITTLE MOMENTUM GOING INTO
HALFTIME, THESE NEXT 3:24 IS GOING TO SAY A LOT
ABOUT THE COMPLEXION OF THE THIS GAME. ABSOLUTELY. BUT AND YOU LOOK AT IT
FROM QUARTER TO QUARTER, JEFF, SIX POINTS IN THE
FIRST, ALREADY 13 HERE IN THE SECOND. GLENDALE 16 IN THE
FIRST AND ONLY 11 HERE. SO THEY’VE EACH SCORED 11
POINTS, BUT YOU’RE RIGHT, IF SOUTH MOUNTAIN HAD
FINISHED EVEN HALF THE HOOPS THEY MISSED IN THE
FIRST QUARTER, THIS WOULD PROBABLY BE A TIE GAME
OR THEY MIGHT BE UP. YEAH. NICE MOVEMENT
THERE DOWN LOW. AND I DID SEE
IT THAT TIME. SEE, JEFF, SHE PICKED
UP HER PIVOT FOOT, DID MAREENA DENHAM,
SO SHE TRAVELS. AND IT WILL BE A TURNOVER. AND AGAIN, IF YOU’RE SOUTH
MOUNTAIN, AGAIN, IF YOU’RE OPEN AND YOU’RE A SHOOTER,
I KNOW YOU WANT TO TAKE THE 3, JEFF, BUT, MAN,
THEIR STRUGGLES HAVE JUST BEEN MONUMENTAL FROM
THE 3-POINT LINE. WELL, IT’S JUST
SHOT-SELECTION DISCIPLINE. AND RIGHT NOW, IF SOUTH
MOUNTAIN IS GOING TO GET BACK IN IT, THEY’VE GOT
TO KNOW THEIR LIMITATIONS. AND A GREAT PLAY
THERE BY WOMACK. SHE GOT THE PASS A LITTLE
BIT OUT OF POSITION, JEFF, BUT SHE DRAWS
THE FOUL ON DENHAM. THAT’S HER FIRST. SO THAT’S THE 6TH FOUL
OF THIS SECOND QUARTER. WOMACK WILL SHOOT TWO. SHE IS SHOOTING
THERE AGAIN. AGAIN, SHE WAS KIND OF OFF
BALANCE, BUT JUST QUICK ENOUGH, BASKETBALL —
JEFF, YOU GOT TO LOVE HER GAME. WE SAID WHEN SHE WAS
LEADING TO PUT THAT SHOT UP, AND SHE MISSES
THE FIRST FREE THROW. WELL, IF SOUTH CANNOT GET
IN TRANSITION BASKETBALL, WHEN THEY SETTLE INTO THE
HALF COURT, THEY NEED TO HAVE HER AS THEIR
NUMBER-ONE OPTION. AND I HAVEN’T SEEN THAT
SO FAR HERE TONIGHT. IVY COTTON GETTING
SET TO CHECK BACK IN. WOMACK PUTS THE SECOND
THREE THROW UP AND IN. SO SHE’S IN
DOUBLING FIGURES. YEAH, THAT’S MAKES IT 27
— WE’VE BEEN DOING THIS A LONG TIME. GREAT MINDS THINK ALIKE. 10 POINTS FOR WOMACK,
MATCHES HER NUMBER. AND LOLIC WILL GET THE
BALL FROM MAREENA DENHAM. YOU KNOW, MIKE, VERY FEW
PLAYERS IN THE ACCAC ON THE WOMEN’S SIDE — HOW
MANY TIMES HAVE YOU EVER SEEN A PLAYER AVERAGE
OVER 10 REBOUNDS A GAME? IT’S RARE. YEAH. AGAIN, SHE’S AT 10.4,
NUMBER ONE IN DEFENSE REBOUNDS PER GAME. AND SHOT UP IN THERE
BY GLENDALE, NO GOOD. AS GOULETTE BRINGS IT
ACROSS COURT TO CANTU. WOMACK NOW UP TOP,
GETS IT TO COTTON. SETS HER A NICE SCREEN. THOUGHT ABOUT THE JUMPER. DOESN’T TAKE IT. NOW THEY WANT WOMACK
IN THE LOW BLOCK HERE. NOW SHE’S SET IN
THE HIGH SCREEN. SHE ROLLS TO THE HOOP. AND GOULETTE
GETS IT TO HER. AND STOPS WITH A FREE
THROW EXTENDED JUMPER, NO GOOD THOUGH. AND LOOK AT THAT, LOLIC
TRYING TO PASS IT DOWN. WOMACK STEALS IT,
GOES UNCONTESTED. OH, AND ALMOST DROPPED IT
OUT WITH THE LEFT-HAND LAY UP FOR WOMACK. AND NOW IT’S A FIVE-POINT
GAME, ONLY TRAILING BY 2 WITH 2 MINUTES LEFT TO
GO HERE IN THE HALF. THEY ARE ON A 6-0
RUN RIGHT NOW. KESLER-KLEIN HAD BALL,
GETS IT TO LOLIC, OVER TO SEGAL, BUT AGAIN, SWINGS
IT ALL THE WAY ACROSS FOR JADA SMITH. LOSES COTTON. SHE SLIPS DOWN, NO GOOD. AND COTTON ABLE TO
GET THE LONG REBOUND. AND LOOK AT COTTON RUNNING
UP THE COURT AS SHE HAS CANTU ON THE
OPPOSITE WINDOW. SHE STEPS BACK,
GETS IT TO WOMACK. NICE BALL FAKE. GOES RIGHT AT SEGAL. WELL, SHE MAY HAVE
INITIATED THE CONTACT, JEFF, BUT SEGAL
WASN’T SET. AND IT LOOKS LIKE, YEP,
THE FOUL WILL BE CALLED ON SEGAL, HER SECOND. AND THAT IS THE TEAM’S
7TH OF THE SECOND QUARTER. SO SHOOTING TWO. LET’S SEE IF SHE CAN —
NOW ONE THING ON THE LAST DRIVE BY SOUTH THAT I
REALLY LIKED, YOU SAW IVY COTTON COME DOWN. SHE GOT INTO SOME TRAFFIC. SHE DIDN’T FORCE IT THAT
TIME, AND SHE GOT IT TO AN OPEN PLAYER. WOMACK IS GOING TO BE
ABLE TO DO STUFF DOWN LOW. SHE’S GOT THE
ATHLETIC ABILITY. SHE’S GOT THE MOVES. THE HEIGHT. WE REALLY DON’T HAVE A
LOT OF HEIGHT OUT ON THIS GAME. NO 6’2, 6’3 PLAYERS
IN THIS GAME. SO WOMACK CAN DO SOME
DAMAGE DOWN LOW, AND YOU LIKE TO SEE A LITTLE MORE
OF THAT OF IVY COTTON. SO WOMACK MISSED THE FIRST,
AS YOU SAW THERE, BUT HE CLEANS OFF THE STRINGS
THERE, JEFF, AS SHE SWISHES IT. AND LOOK AT THIS. BACK TO WITHIN 4, 27-23. MAN, COACH JACKSON TALKED
TO ME ABOUT HIS TEAM. AND HE SAID, THEY HAVE
FIGHT ALL YEARLONG. AND, YOU KNOW, THEY’VE WON
SOME GAMES IN TWO YEARS PRIOR. THEY HADN’T WON ANY GAMES. AS KESLER-KLEIN PUTS UP
A JUMPER, ROLLS AROUND, HALFWAY DOWN, NO GOOD,
GETTING THE REBOUND THERE IS DENHAM. THERE MAY HAVE BEEN
A LITTLE CONTACT. BUT HERE COMES IVY COTTON,
SUSPENDING IN THE AIR, MISSES THE LAY UP, AND
DENHAM COMES BACK AND GETS THE REBOUND. BUT THAT WAS A GOOD TAKE
THAT TIME BY COTTON. THAT WAS A GOOD TAKE,
JUST COULDN’T FINISH. SHE’S HAD A LOT GOOD ONES
— SOME CONTESTED, I AGREE WITH YOU, BUT AGAIN, JUST
— POOR CHOICE COACH IS SAYING, YOU GOT TO — YOU
GOT TO HAVE CONTROL SPEED. I LOVE THAT SAYING, JEFF. CONTROL SPEED. AS DENHAM MISSES THE
LANE JUMPER THERE. BECAUSE YOU CAN BE AS FAST
AS YOU CAN, BUT IF YOU DON’T GATHER YOURSELF,
CHANCES ARE YOU’RE GOING TO PUT TOO MUCH
ON THE SHOT. 40 SECONDS — 41
SECONDS LEFT TO GO. AND A TRAVEL ON WOMACK. SO THAT WILL TURN THE
BALL BACK OVER, BUT SOUTH MOUNTAIN CAN HOLD OUT
FOR THE LAST SHOT. WELL, GLENDALE WAS DOING
SO WELL THEY BUILT AN 11-POINT LEAD. THEY WERE UP 27-16 AT ONE POINT
HERE IN THE SECOND QUARTER. AND ONE REASON WHY THEY
WERE HITTING THEIR OUTSIDE SHOTS, WHEN THE TIMEOUT
WAS MADE AT THE 3:49 MARK, GLENDALE WENT COLD. AND IT’S BEEN A GREAT RUN,
A 7-0 RUN HERE FOR THE COUGARS OF SOUTH MOUNTAIN. THAT WILL GO ON BASELINE. THE FOUL IS GOING TO
BE ON DANIELLE SAENZ. SO THAT’S THE THIRD FOUL
OF THE SECOND QUARTER, NON-SHOOTING AS — I’M
SORRY, CHECK THAT, THAT’S ALEXIS SMITH THAT
INBOUNDED IT. OH, THE CORNER, THREE, NO
GOOD BY KESSLER-KLEIN, BUT GETTING THE REBOUND
THERE IS JADA SMITH. AND SHE GETS HER FIRST
POINTS OF THE GAME. AND HER TEAM BACK UP BY 6. 23 SECONDS. COACH WANTS A TIMEOUT. HIS TEAM DOESN’T HEAR HIM. AND WE GET A — OH, SO ONE
OF THE OFFICIALS DID HEAR IT THAT WAS TREA DANEILS
THAT HEARD IT ALL THE WAY FROM THE BASELINE. THE OTHER TWO REFS A
LITTLE CLOSER, JEFF LOWERY. AND COACH WANTED A
30-SECOND TIMEOUT AGAIN. NO NEED TO RUSH THE SHOT
LIKE THEY DID IN THE FIRST QUARTER, USE UP THE CLOCK,
TRY AND GET THE LAST SHOT, AGAIN, BEING WITHIN 6 THEY
HAVE OUTSCORED GLENDALE 17-13 IN THIS QUARTER. YEAH, IT’S BEEN A GREAT
SECOND QUARTER AND ESPECIALLY THE LAST, LIKE
I SAID, THE LAST THREE AND A HALF MINUTES THIS SOUTH
MOUNTAIN TEAM HAS REALLY DOMINATED. AND HOPEFULLY THEY CAN SET
UP A PLAY HERE FOR WOMACK. NOW ANOTHER THING IS:
WOMACK, IF SHE CAN GET THE BALL DOWN LOW, WATCH FOR
22 ARIEL NELSON ON THE BACKSIDE, AND/OR COTTON
WITH MAYBE A DRIVE ALONG THE BASELINE OFF A PASS
FORM WOMACK, BUT LOOK FOR WOMACK TO BE THE
CENTER POINT HERE. GOULETTE INBOUNDS
— PLENTY OF TIME. GETS IT BACK TO GOULETTE. 12 SECONDS LEFT. DOWN TO WOMACK. SHE DRIVES IN AND
HITS THE SHOT. NICE PLAY BY
RAEGENE WOMACK. AND THEY ARE WITHIN 4,
BUT 5 SECONDS LEFT TO GO. LOLIC HAS THE BALL. SHE IS GETTING PRESSURED,
DRIVES IN THE LANE, AND THEY ARE GOING
TO CALL A FOUL. WELL, IT SHOULD BE
A NON-SHOOTING FOUL. AND THEY HAD ONE TO GIVE. SO THE NEXT FOUL —
THERE’S 1.4 SECONDS. THAT WAS ONLY THEIR
4TH TEAM FOUL. APPARENTLY SHE
IS GOING UP. I DIDN’T THINK SHE IS
IN THE ACT OF SHOOTING. THEY ARE GOING
TO SAY SHE WAS. AND LOLIC HITS THE
FREE THROW THERE. THAT’S WHERE AS A
DEFENSIVE PLAYER, YOU KIND OF NEED TO KNOW WHERE YOU
ARE IN THE GAME CLOCK. YOU KIND OF NEED TO
KNOW WHERE THAT IS. AND YOU JUST GAVE
THEM TWO EASY POINTS. SO IT MAKES IT 31-25. JUST ABOUT HALF-COURT
SHOT GOES UP, AND IT IS NO GOOD. 31-25, THE SCORE. THE GAUCHOS HOLDING ON TO
A LEAD, BUT A MUCH BETTER SECOND QUARTER AND LAST
HALF OF THE SECOND QUARTER FOR SOUTH MOUNTAIN. SO WITH THE LADY COUGARS
LEADING OVER THE LADY GAUCHOS, WE’LL STEP ASIDE. MORE ACTION COMING UP
HERE ON MCTV SPORTS. BACK HERE AT GLENDALE
COMMUNITY COLLEGE TO START THE SECOND HALF. AS 31-25, THE SCORE, SOUTH
MOUNTAIN IN THEIR ROYAL BLUE JERSEYS. AND THEY GET THE FIRST
TWO OF THE SECOND HALF AS THAT’S KAYLA CLARK
PUTTING THE HOOP IN THERE. ALONGSIDE THE
MAN JEFF LOWERY. I AM MIKE CAROTENUTO. CLARK ABLE TO PUT THAT IN. GET HER TEAM TO
WITHIN THE FOUR. AND THE 3 POINTER IS UP
AND REALLY OFF THERE BY JADA SMITH, CALLING THE
SHOT, GETTING THE REBOUND. AS THAT SHOT IS UP BY
KIARA MORGAN, NO GOOD. AND A REBOUND HERE. AND HERE COMES
SOUTH ON THE BREAK. A LITTLE TWO ON TWO. AND A SWAT FROM BEHIND
BY JORDYN KESLER-KLEIN. AND THAT’S HER FOURTH
SWAT, UNOFFICIALLY SINCE THE GAME IS NOT OVER YET,
BUT KESSLER-KLEIN ROCKING IT. ALMOST TURNED OVER THERE. GOOD PATIENCE DOWN IN
THE LOW BLOCK, MIKE. WHAT A SHOT THERE
BY ARIEL NELSON. PUTS IT UP AND IN. SHE HAD SIX POINTS IN THE
FIRST HALF AND HER TEAM — OH, IT WAS NO GOOD. MY APOLOGIES. I THOUGHT THAT ROLLED IN,
BUT IT ROLLED OFF THE RIM. SO NELSON NOT GETTING
THE HOOP, BUT A GOOD MOVE THERE ON THE POST IS JADA
SMITH HAS IT NOW, GETS IT OVER TO KESLER-KLEIN,
ABOUT A 10 FOOTER, NO GOOD, OFF THE
BACK OF THE RIM. THE REBOUND IS PULLED DOWN
BY MORGAN AND IT IS UP AND IN. 33-27 THE SCORE. GOULETTE WITH THE BALL. OH, A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT
STARTING LINEUP UP AS WOMACK WAS ON THE BENCH,
BUT NOW WOMACK IS GOING TO COME IN. AND NOW ALEXIS SMITH
PICKS UP HER SECOND FOUL. SO KAYLA CLARK WILL BE
SHOOTING TWO FROM TO FREE-THROW LINE. AND SHE MAKES
THE FIRST ONE. NOW SHE’LL HAVE A CHANCE
TO PUT THE SECOND ONE UP, AND SHE DOES. SHE PUTS IT IN. SO KAYLA CLARK 4 POINTS TO
START THIS THIRD QUARTER. VERY STRONG SECOND QUARTER,
MIKE, BY SOUTH MOUNTAIN. GLENDALE STARTED TO
STRUGGLE FROM THE FIELD. AND SOUTH MOUNTAIN
TOOK ADVANTAGE OF IT. THEY OUTSCORED GLENDALE
19-15 TO CUT IT TO A 6-POINT, HALFTIME LEAD. THEY’VE GOT IT
BACK DOWN TO 4. THIS IS THE SECOND TIME IN
THE QUARTER THEY’VE GOT IT DOWN TO 4. AS LOLIC TRYING TO
PICK UP HER DRIBBLE. GETS IT OVER
TO JADA SMITH. SHE JUMP STOPS AT
THE FREE THROW LINE. AND PUTS IT IN. JADA SMITH WITH
WITH THE HOOP THERE. WELL, JADA SMITH, A LITTLE
MISMATCH THERE, IVY COTTON 5’5, JADA SMITH 5’8,
DEFINITE HEIGHT ADVANTAGE. I DON’T THINK IVY IS
5’5, BUT BEAUTIFUL SHOT. NICE TOUCH SHOT. STRAIGHT OUT. GET THE GAUCHOS
BACK UP TO THE 6. THAT WAS THE
LEAD AT HALFTIME. JADA SMITH PICKS UP HER
SECOND FOUL THERE AND THE TEAM SECOND, WHICH
MAKES IT 35-29. BALL GOES DOWN LOW
AND IS UP AND IN. IF YOU’RE SOUTH MOUNTAIN,
YOU WANT KAYLA CLARK. YOU WANT TO GET THE
BALL IN HER HANDS. YOU JUST CAN’T — IT CAN’T
ALL BE WOMACK, WHO LED ALL SCORES WITH
15 AT THE HALF. ALEXIS SMITH,
SHE’LL TAKE A 3. AND LOOK AT THAT, YOU TALK
ABOUT HOME COURT ROLL, SHE HIT THE SHORT SIDE OF THE
RIM, BUT SHE GETS THE 3. AND NOW THAT WILL
MAKE IT 38-31. SOUTH MOUNTAIN — GETTING
TIED UP — LOLIC THERE. AND WOW, SHE IS JUST
ABSOLUTELY BATTLING KAYLA CLARK THERE. IT’S A JUMP BALL. AND NOW LOLIC
SLOW TO GET UP. I WONDERER IF SHE JAMMED
HER SHOULDER A LITTLE BIT ON THE THAT PLAY. SHE’S GETTING UP —
IT’S THE LEFT LEG. I’LL TELL YOU WHAT, YOU
GOT TO GIVE CREDIT TO BOTH THESE TEAMS. THAT IS WHAT ABOUT THE 5TH
OR 6TH TIME WE’VE SEEN, YOU KNOW, TWO OR THREE
GIRLS GO TO THE FLOOR TO GO FOR A LOOSE BALL. AND YOU GOT TO LOVE THE
EFFORT ON BOTH SIDES. BRYON JACKSON THE HEAD
COACH OF SOUTH MOUNTAIN AND THE JENNIFER
NIEBLING FOR GLENDALE. 38-31 THE SCORE. KESSLER-KLEIN A SHOT FROM
RIGHT OUTSIDE THE LANE. AND JORDYN KESLER-KLEIN
GETS HER FIRST TWO. AND NOW THAT WILL PUT THE
LEAD RIGHT BACK UP TO 9. GREAT START TO THE SECOND
HALF BY THE GAUCHOS. WOMACK HAD THE BALL,
GETS IN THE CORNER, A HIGH-ARCHING THREE. AND THAT IS NO
GOOD BY CANTU. BUT WOMACK’S ABILITY TO CRASH
THE BOARDS, GET THE REBOUND. SHE’S SO GOOD UNDERNEATH,
BECAUSE OF THE ATHLETICISM, THE LENGTH. AND SHE’S GOT A CHANCE TO
GET A 3-POINT PLAY HERE. THAT WAS A BIG PLAY,
BECAUSE GLENDALE LOOKED LIKE THEY WERE STARTING
TO MOVE AWAY FROM THEM. IT WAS 40-31. YEAH, A SOLID
MOVE BY WOMACK. SHE IS NOT BOTHERED
BY THE CONTACT THERE. AND MIKE, WHAT I LIKED
ABOUT WOMACK BEFORE SHE GOT THE REBOUND IN THE PUT
BACK, WAS THE FACT THAT SHE ON THE PREVIOUS PLAY,
SHE WAS ABLE TO GET THE PENETRATION AND THEN FIND
AN OPEN SHOOTER OVER IN THE CORNER. THEY DIDN’T KNOCK IT DOWN,
BUT YOU LIKE THAT CONCEPT FROM AN OFFENSIVE
STANDPOINT. WELL, FULL-COURT PRESSURE
THERE ALMOST TURNED OVER BY THE GAUCHOS. THE 3 IN THE CORNER IS
RUSHED BY SMITH, BUT THEY ARE GOING TO SAY THAT
SMITH WAS FOULED. AND SHE WAS FOULED
BY ARIEL NELSON. THIS TEAM’S FIRST, BUT
NOW JADA SMITH WILL BE SHOOTING THREE, JEFF, IT
LOOKS LIKE SHE RUSHED IT. AND MAYBE THAT’S WHY,
BECAUSE HE FELT SHE DREW THE CONTACT AND ALMOST
HAD A 4-POINT PLAY THERE, ALMOST SUNK IT AS SHE HITS
THE FIRST FREE THROW. IF GLENDALE IS GOING
TO CLIMB BACK INTO THE PLAYOFF RACE, WE
MENTIONED, TWO GAMES OUT RIGHT NOW, BEHIND THE
THREE AND THE FOUR SEED IN DIVISION II, PHOENIX
COLLEGE, SCOTTSDALE GOES INTO TONIGHT’S ACTION BOTH
7-10, GLENDALE WITH 5-12 RECORD. SO THEY ARE
TWO GAMES BACK. GLENDALE HAS TIED
SCOTTSDALE IN THE TWO GAMES, BUT THEY ARE 0-1
AGAINST PHOENIX, AND THEY STILL HAVE
PHOENIX TO PLAY. IN FACT, THEIR NEXT GAME
WILL BE AGAINST PHOENIX. THAT WAS A NICE RIVALRY
HERE IN THE WEST PART OF THE VALLEY. TWO FOR THREE FROM THE
LINE THERE, AS YOU SAW FROM SMITH. SO 42-34 THE SCORE. SOUTH MOUNTAIN TRYING TO
RUN THEIR — GET THEIR OFFENSE SET UP. THERE IS 10 LEFT ON
THE SHOT CLOCK, SWUNG OVER TO GOULETTE, DOWN
LOW TO WOMACK. IF SHE MAKES A MOVE
AGAINST 3 DEFENDERS SOMEHOW, MISSES, GETS
A REBOUND, PUTS IT UP. AND CHALLENGING HER WAS
MAREENA DENHAM, BUT IT LOOKS LIKE DENHAM
WILL BE OVER THE BACK. AND THAT WAS ON
THE MAREENA DENHAM. SO THAT IS HER SECOND
AND THE TEAM’S 4TH. AND WOMACK, WHO HAS MADE
A LIVING AT THE FREE THROW LINE IN THIS GAME, JEFF,
HAS OCCUPIED IT QUITE A BIT, WILL BE GOING
BACK TO SHOOT TWO MORE. YOU’RE GOING TO SEE —
SHE’S GOING TO GET A LOT OF CHANCES TO GO TO THE
FREE-THROW LINE TONIGHT, I WOULD IMAGINE. 18 POINTS. MAKE IT 19. THAT ONE ROLLS AROUND. AND THAT WAS
HER 9TH ATTEMPT. SO THIS WILL BE HER 10TH
ATTEMPT AT THE FREE-THROW LINE FOR WOMACK. AND ONCE AGAIN, A VERY
DIFFERENT — TRADITION SHE HAS THERE, THE WAY SHE
DRIBBLES THE BALL WAY OUT TO HER RIGHT SIDE, BUT
WORKS FOR HER, JEFF, SHE’S ABLE TO GET IN RHYTHM
AND HIT THAT FREE THROW. SO SHE’S MADE
THREE IN A ROW. AND NOW HER TEAM
STILL WITHIN 6. AND SHE’S GOT 6 REBOUNDS
TO GO ALONG WITH IT. SO SHE’S IN LINE TO GET
THAT SEASON AVERAGE OF 10 PLUS HERE TONIGHT
IN GLENDALE. AVERAGING A DOUBLE DOUBLE,
I KNOW IN THIS SEASON, ESPECIALLY — AS
THE 3 POINTER IS UP. AND LOOK THAT, ABOUT A
FOOT BEHIND THE LINE, AS IT ROLLS OVER THE FRONT
OF THE RIM, SMOOTHING THE SECOND 3 FOR ALEXIS
SMITH, MAKES IT 45-36. 5:35 LEFT TO GO HERE
IN THE THIRD QUARTER. THE BALL GOES DOWN LOW, UP TOP
TO WOMACK, A LITTLE CONTACT. AND NOT HAPPY WITH
THAT IS FAULKNER. BUT FAULKNER DOES PICK UP
HER SECOND FOUL, JEFF, AND THAT WILL BE THE TEAM’S
5TH OF THE THIRD QUARTER. AND WOMACK, AGAIN,
WILL GO AND SHOOT 2. AND LIKE I SAID TO YOU A MILLION
TIMES, YOU KNOW IT’S MY FAVORITE THING, ESPECIALLY
IF I WAS COACHING, YOU’RE DOWN, SCORING POINTS
WITHOUT THE CLOCK RUNNING, IS THE BEST THING EVER. IT’S STILL EARLY. YOU MIGHT WANT TO SAY THAT
IN THE FOURTH, BUT, YEAH, IT’S STILL EARLY. YOU STILL GOT HALF THIS
QUARTER AND THE 4TH STILL, BUT, YOU KNOW, YOU LIKE
SOUTH MOUNTAIN, THEIR ABILITY TO GET
IN TRANSITION. BUT YOU FIGURE WITH FIVE
GAMES LEFT TO GO, YOU GOT A WEAPON LIKE WOMACK. I MEAN, SHE’S — I MEAN,
SHE’S GOING TO DOUBLE HER AVERAGE POINT-PER-GAME
TOTAL HERE TONIGHT, NO DOUBT ABOUT IT. SHE’S GOT 22 WITH 5:32
TO GO HERE IN THE THIRD. YEP, AND SHE HIT BOTH OF
THOSE, UNOFFICIALLY, I HAVE HER 8-13 FROM
THE LINE, JEFF. BUT WHEN GLENDALE IS
KNOCKING DOWN THE OUTSIDE SHOTS, THAT’S WHEN THEY
START BUILDING THAT LEAD. OH, NICE CHALLENGE THERE
WOMACK ON ALEXIS SMITH. THE BALL GETS
KNOCKED AROUND. ANDREA GOULETTE
COMES AWAY WITH IT. AND SHE WILL FLY UP
THE COURT FOR THE LADY COUGARS, GOES RIGHT AROUND
FAULKNER, PUTS IT UP, CAN’T GET IT TO ROLL. AND COACH JUMPING UP,
BUT, AGAIN, I LIKE — YOU TALKED ABOUT IT THE FIRST
HALF, JEFF, TWO PLAYERS FOR SOUTH MOUNTAIN IN
COTTON AND GOULETTE THAT CAN DRIVE, BUT YET BOTH
OF THEM STRUGGLE TO FINISH AROUND THE RIM. WELL, AND YOU KNOW, YOU
TALK ABOUT SPACE IS THE MOST IMPORTANT
PART OF AN OFFENSE. YOU’RE TRYING TO PUT SPACE
BETWEEN YOU AND THE DEFENDER. AND GOULETTE GOES
COAST TO COAST. IT WAS A BEAUTIFUL
COAST-TO-COAST DRIVE. WHEN SHE WENT UP FOR THE
SHOT, I MEAN, THERE WAS REALLY NO HANDS
AROUND HER. SO THOSE ARE THE THINGS
THAT THIS TEAM HAS TO IMPROVE ON IF THEY ARE
GOING TO BE BETTER NEXT YEAR. AND WOMACK IS GOING TO
BE ONE OF THOSE PLAYERS COMING BACK NEXT YEAR. ELLA SEGAL IN THE
GAME FROM GLENDALE. YOU SEE HER WITH THE
BALL THERE, NUMBER 23 . 45-38. GAUCHOS LEADING. OH, A LITTLE
REACH IN THERE. I THOUGHT SHE GOT MOSTLY
ALL THE BALL, BUT I WANT TO SAY THAT’S HER 4TH. YEAH, IT IS HER 4TH FOUL,
JEFF, ON THE PA THERE. BUT ONLY THE TEAM’S
SECOND OF THE QUARTER. AND NOW — WELL, I WAS
GOING TO SAY — AND RIGHT BACK IN THE GAME RIGHT
AWAY IS ANDREA GOULETTE. DANIELLE SAENZ WILL
GET SET TO CHECK IN. WELL, DANIELLE SAENZ WILL
BE COMING IN FOR KAYLA CLARK. OH, WHAT A 3 POINTER THERE
BY KESSLER-KLEIN, GOT THE SCREEN, STEPPED BACK ON
THE WING THERE, AND BURIES THE THREE. SO NOW IT’S BACK UP TO
A 10-POINT LEAD, 48-38. AND COACH JACKSON, WELL, HE
DECIDES TO TAKE A FULL TIMEOUT. AND LIKE YOU SAID, JEFF,
HIS TEAM WAS WITHIN 6 AT HALF, BUT NOW THAT LEADS BACK UP
TO 10 FOR GLENDALE. SO LADY COUGARS TAKE A
FULL TIMEOUT, AND WE’LL STEP ASIDE WITH THEM,
48-38, GLENDALE LEADING OVER SOUTH MOUNTAIN
HERE ON MCTV SPORTS. BACK HERE AT GLENDALE
COMMUNITY COLLEGE WHERE THE LADY GAUCHOS
ARE LEADING 48-38. ALONGSIDE JEFF LOWERY,
I AM MIKE CAROTENUTO. AND JEFF, YOU KNOW, WE
TALKED ABOUT THIS GLENDALE TEAM BATTLING, BATTLING TO
MAYBE GET IN THE PLAYOFFS. I MEAN, MATHEMATICALLY,
SOUTH MOUNTAIN IS NOT OUT OF THE IT EITHER. THEY HAVE TO GO ON ONE
HECK OF A RUN AS WE SEE THE STANDINGS RIGHT THERE,
LIKE YOU MENTIONED, THE 5-12 WITH TWO 7-10 TEAMS
IN SCOTTSDALE AND PHOENIX. YEAH, THEY TAKE THE TOP
FOUR TEAMS IN EACH THE DIVISION I AND
THE DIVISION II. OH, THE SHOT UP AND NO
GOOD, ROLLING AROUND. GLENDALE COMES
DOWN THE REBOUND. FINALLY JUST GETS TIPPED
OVER TO EMINA LOLIC. AND SHE WILL BE
FOULED BY IVY COTTON. THAT’S HER
SECOND, TEAM’S THIRD. GLENDALE, AGAIN, IF YOUR
COACH NIEBLING, JEFF, YOU GOT TO BE FRUSTRATE
BECAUSE THEY HAVE RACKED UP FOULS A LOT FASTER
THAN SOUTH TONIGHT. AND AGAIN, I KNOW SOUTH
HAS MISSED EASY LAY UPS, BUT THEY’VE KEPT LADY
COUGARS IN THIS GAME. AND THAT SECOND QUARTER
MAKING A RUN CAN GIVE THEM A LOT OF CONFIDENCE. AS THE 3 GOES UP
BY ALEXIS SMITH. AND WELL, CONFIDENCE COULD
BE SAILING IN THE WIND THERE, AS ALEXIS SMITH
BURIES HER THIRD HOOP OF THE QUARTER. AND THEY ARE ALL FROM
BEHIND THE ARCH, JEFF. SHE’S HAD A BIG, BIG
QUARTER HERE AND A BIG REASON WHY THIS GLENDALE
TEAM LEADS BY 13. AND THE 3 POINTER THAT
TIME, AND SHE’S GOING TO SINK IT. AND THAT IS LIZETTE CANTU. SO SHE’LL HIT THE 3 AND
DESPERATELY NEEDING THAT. SO THAT MAKES IT A
10-POINT GAME, AGAIN, WITH 3:39 LEFT TO GO
HERE IN THE THIRD. WELL, WOMACK IS ON THE
COURT HERE FOR SOUTH MOUNTAIN. AND SOUTH MOUNTAIN RIGHT NOW,
MIKE, THEY ARE IN THE BONUS. SO IF THEY GET A CHANCE TO
GET INTO THE HALF COURT, THEIR HALF COURT OFFENSE,
IT MIGHT BEHOOVE THEM AND, AGAIN, GET IT
DOWN TO WOMACK. YEAH, SHE’S, AGAIN, WE
TALKED ABOUT AVERAGING A DOUBLE DOUBLE, 12 POINTS
A GAME, 10.4 REBOUNDS. YOU SEE COACH JACKSON
TALKING TO HIS STAR RIGHT THERE. SHE’S IN THE CORNER. OUT OF MARICOPA HIGH
SCHOOL, RAEGENE WOMACK. OH, AND LOOK AT THAT SHE
KNIFES THROUGH THE LANE, JEFF, AND GETS THE HOOP. WHAT A MOVE. SHE MUST HAVE LEARNED THAT
FROM WATCHING ME PLAY YOU, MR. LOWERY. MIGHT HAVE. I THINK HER LENGTH AND
ATHLETICISM IS MUCH BETTER THAN OUR. YES. AND SHE’S GOT 24
POINTS HERE TONIGHT. I WAS TRYING TO THINK IF
SHE’S — THAT’S HER SECOND TEAM FOUL. I THOUGHT HE SAID THIRD. I THOUGHT IT
WAS HER THIRD. IT SHOULD BE HER THIRD. YEAH, IT IS HER THIRD. UNLESS THEY SWITCHED IT. SO ALEXIS SMITH SHOOTS
THE FIRST FREE THROW. AND THAT’S THE FIRST SHOT
SHE’S MADE, JEFF, THAT WASN’T FROM
BEHIND THE ARCH. COACH JACKSON CAN’T TAKE
WOMACK OUT RIGHT NOW. YOU KNOW, THEY GOT THE
LEAD DOWN THE 4, SOUTH MOUNTAIN DID. AND RIGHT NOW ONE OF THE
ASSISTANT COACHES FOR GLENDALE IS GOING OVER
TO CHECK AND VERIFY THAT THERE IS INDEED THREE
FOULS ON NUMBER 10, RAEGENE WOMACK, THE GAME
HIGH SCORER WITH 24. SO 53-43, SMITH HITS BOTH. COTTON GETS IT
OVER TO GOULETTE. AND GOULETTE WILL GET A
HIGH SCREEN AS SEGAL COMES OUT, BUT GOULETTE
TAKES HER TO THE RACK. YOU KNOW, SHE
FELT THE CONTACT. AND IT WOULD HAVE NICE IF
SHE COULD HAVE MADE THAT, BUT SHE’LL BE SHOOTING
TWO AS SEGAL PICKS UP HER THIRD FOUL, JEFF. AND THAT IS THEIR 6TH
OF THIS THIRD QUARTER. WELL, I THINK GOULETTE,
EVEN IN THE HALF COURT, EVEN THOUGH SHE’S REALLY
GOOD IN TRANSITION IN GETTING IT OUT AND GETTING
IT GOING FOR THE SOUTH MOUNTAIN COUGARS, YOU
KNOW, SHE’S PROBABLY YOUR BEST POINT GUARD IN
THE HALF-COURT SCHEME. I THINK IVY COTTON HAS A
CHANCE TO BE A GREAT POINT GUARD, IF SHE LOOKS PAST
AND SHOOTS — LOOKS PAST FIRST. WELL, GOULETTE HITS
THE FIRST FREE THROW. AS IT’S 53-44. NOW SHE HITS BOTH, SECOND
ONE, AND MAKE IT 53-45. 2:40 LEFT TO GO HERE
IN THE THIRD QUARTER. LOLIC GETTING PRESSURED BY
COTTON, GOES TO HER LEFT, SPLITS THE DEFENSE. SHE HITS THE COURT. SO NOW — COTTON. LOLIC
HIT THE FLOOR, BECAUSE COTTON DID PUSH HER. PICKS UP HER
THIRD, TEAM FOURTH. AND LOLIC WILL GO TO
THE LINE TO SHOOT TWO. GLENDALE’S LARGEST LEAD
HAS BEEN 11 IN THIS GAME. THEY LED 27-16 AT ONE
POINT IN THE SECOND QUARTER. SOUTH MOUNTAIN HAS GOTTEN
IT TO WITHIN 4 ON A COUPLE OF OCCASIONS. AND LOLIC HITS BOTH. SO SHE IS PERFECT FROM
THE FREE THROW LINE, 4-4, JEFF, LOLIC. FIVE POINTS. AND NOW GOULETTE
WITH THE BALL. GETS IT OTHER TO SAENZ. AND TRIES TO GET
IT TO COTTON. AND IT’S POPPED UP IN THE
AIR AND TAKEN BY CLARK. CLARK PUTS UP A WILD SHOT,
AND THOUGHT SHE HAD THE CONTACT, BUT SAENZ KNOCKS
IT BACK OVER TO NELSON WHO WILL PUT IT UP AND IN. ARIEL NELSON SHE GETS
HER FIRST POINTS OF THIS THIRD QUARTER. AS IT MAKES A 55-47. LOLIC WITH THE
BALL UP TOP. AND SHE GETS IT
TO KESLER-KLEIN. DOWN LOW TO ALEXIS SMITH. WILL DEVELOP IT
OFF TO DENHAM. OH, MISSES A SHOT
FROM THREE FEET AWAY. SHE’S PROBABLY SHOCKED
BECAUSE SHE WAS THAT WIDE OPEN IN THE MIDDLE
OF THE LANE. SOMETIMES THAT’S THE
TOUGHEST SHOT TO MAKE ON THE COURT. AS CANTU TRIES TO GET
IT DOWN LOW TO NELSON. AND NELSON DIVING
ON THE GROUND. IT WILL BE A JUMP BALL. AND IT WILL STAY
WITH THE COUGARS. WELL, AGAIN, IF YOU’RE
COACH JACKSON OF SOUTH MOUNTAIN YOU WANT A VERY
STRONG FINAL 1:46 HERE IN THIS QUARTER WITHOUT
WOMACK IN THERE, THEIR TOP SCORER AND THE GAME HIGH
SCORER WITH 24 FOR SOUTH MOUNTAIN IN THE BLUE. BUT I THINK THE MOST
IMPORTANT STAT IS THE 3 FOULS. YEP. OH, AS GETTING STUFFED
THERE WAS GOULETTE. SO ALEXIS SMITH NOW WILL
BRING IT UP AND PASSING IT OVER TO LOLIC, WHO CATCHES
IT, AND JUMPS STOPS JUST PAST HALF COURT. 15 LEFT ON THE SHOT CLOCK. KESSLER-KLEIN LEFT OPEN,
THREE, SHORT, BUT SHE’S ABLE TO CHASE DOWN HER
REBOUND IN THE CORNER. SAENZ JUST COULDN’T GET
IT, OVER AND DENHAM, AND NOW A 3 POINTER BY JADA
SMITH, PUSHES IT RIGHT OVER THE FRONT OF THE RIM
AND SMITH WITH HER 7TH POINT OF THIS QUARTER,
MAKES IT AN 11-POINT GAME. AND COACH JACKSON NOT
HAPPY AS HE TAKES A TIMEOUT WITH HIS DEFENSE
NOT GETTING OUT TO THE THREE-POINT SHOOTERS. HE TAKES A FULL TIMEOUT. SO 1:04 LEFT TO GOING HERE
IN THE THIRD, WE’LL DO THAT WITH HIM. 58-47, LADY GAUCHOS
LEADING OVER THE LEADING COUGARS HERE
ON MCTV SPORTS. LOOK AT THAT GREAT SHOT
THERE BY DAVID HILE. BASELINE. THE GAME HAS
RESUMED, 58-47. JEFF, COACH JACKSON NOT
VERY HAPPY ON THAT LAST DEFENSIVE SEQUENCE THERE
BY THE LADY COUGARS. AS GOULETTE GOES DOWN THE
LANE, PUTS IT UP, NO GOOD ON THE DRIVE, A
LITTLE CONTACT. AND OH, WOW, THAT IS VERY
TICKY-TACK, A FOUL 93 FEET AWAY FROM THE OTHER
HOOP ON GOULETTE. AND THAT’S HER THIRD,
TEAM’S 5TH OF THIS QUARTER. WELL, BOTH TEAMS ARE
IN THE BONUS NOW. SO YOU’VE GOT TO HAVE
SOME DISCIPLINE ON THE DEFENSIVE SIDE AS EVERY
FOUL FROM HERE ON OUT AUTOMATIC TWO SHOT. ALEXIS SMITH WILL HAVE
TWO MORE AT THE FREE THROW LINE. FIRST ONE ROLLS AROUND. AND THAT’S YOUR HOME COURT
— WELL, JEFF, WHY WAS COACH JACKSON SO UNHAPPY
IN THE HUDDLE THERE? WELL, ON THAT PLAY THAT
ENDED RIGHT BEFORE THE TIMEOUT, THE 3 POINTER BY
JADA SMITH — AS GLENDALE GETS ANOTHER BIG REBOUND,
ALMOST THE PUT BACK. AND THEY ARE GOING BACK
TO THE CHARITY STRIPE. BUT, YOU KNOW, IT’S OVER
COMMITTING ON DEFENSE, NOT HUSTLING FOR THAT
LOSE-BALL REBOUND. THAT PLAY WAS STARTED ALL
BY JORDYN KESLER-KLEIN FOR GLENDALE, WHO
HAS 12 POINTS. I’VE BEEN REALLY IMPRESSED
WITH GLENDALE BALANCE SCORING. YOU’VE GOT 13
FOR ALEXIS SMITH. YOU GOT 12 FOR KLEIN. 7 FOR SEGAL. 9 BY JADA SMITH, INCLUDING
A BIG 3 THAT EXTENDED THE LEAD TO 11. AND NOW THE LEAD, THEIR
LARGEST, AT 14 FOR GLENDALE. YEAH, AND ALEXIS SMITH
MISSED THE SECOND FREE THROW THE FIRST TIME,
HUSTLES DOWN TO GET HER REBOUND, GETS FOULED, AND
YOU SEE HER HIT BOTH OF THEM THERE. 61-47, 35 SECONDS
LEFT TO GO. GOULETTE THE BALL,
TRIES TO DRIBBLE. IT BOUNCES OFF A FEW
GLENDALE PLAYERS. AND NOW HERE COMES ALEXIS
SMITH AS SHE GETS IT OVER TO LOLIC. AND LOLIC GOES TO THE
LEFT, GETS IN THE LANE, TRIES TO JUMP STOP. NO HOOP. NO CONTINUATION THERE. AND WOW, THAT’S IS GOING TO BE
NUMBER 4 ON GOULETTE. SO CLARK HAS GOT 4. GOULETTE HAS 4. OH, NO. I’M SORRY. GOULETTE HAS THREE. THAT’S HER THIRD. PARDON ME. WELL, AGAIN, BOTH
TEAMS — IT IS FOUR. IT IS FOUR. OKAY. AND THE FIRST FREE THROW
UP AND IN BY LOLIC. WELL, THE GAUCHOS ARE PUT
UP — THEY DOUBLED THEIR FIRST HALF TOTAL
IN THIS QUARTER. 31 POINTS IN THIS
QUARTER SO FAR, JEFF. AND LOLIC, WE’LL SEE
IF SHE CAN MAKE IT 32. AND SHE DOES JUST THAT. SO
63-47. SOUTH MOUNTAIN CAN HOLD
FOR THEIR LAST SHOT, AS BRINGING UP THE
COURT IS CANTU. SHE GOES TO HER LEFT. AND WOMACK TRYING
TO GET THE BALL. NICE MOVE THERE BY
GOULETTE, INTO THE LANE. NO GOOD. LEAVES IT SHORT. LOLIC COMES DOWN WITH IT
WITH FIVE SECONDS LEFT TO GO, SPEEDING ACROSS HALF
COURT, GOES TO THE LANE, THROWS IT UP, OFF THE
SIDE OF THE BACKBOARD. I THOUGHT SHE DREW THE
CONTACT, BUT SHE JUMPED WAY OUT THERE,
TOUGH ANGLE. AND THEY DON’T GET IT. SO 63-47 IS THE SCORE HERE
AT THE END OF THE THIRD. WELL, IT’S GOING TO BE A
BIG MOUNTAIN TO CLIMB FOR THE COUGARS. CAN THEY DO IT
HERE AT GLENDALE? STICK AROUND,
WE’LL FIND OUT. FOURTH QUARTER COMING
UP HERE ON MCTV SPORTS. AS WE GET SET TO START
THE FINAL QUARTER HERE. GLENDALE LEADING
SOUTH MOUNTAIN. LOLIC WILL BRING THE BALL UP THE
COURT FOR THE GAUCHOS. NOW SHE’LL GET IT
OVER TO JADA SMITH. LOLIC, JADA SMITH, MAREENA
DENHAM, ALEXIS SMITH, AND JORDYN KESLER-KLEIN ARE THE FIVE
ON THE COURT FOR GLENDALE. AND FOR SOUTH MOUNTAIN
WE HAVE IVY COTTON, KAYLA CLARK, BACK IN THE
GAME, RAEGENE WOMACK. BRINGING THE BALL UP THE
COURT THERE IS, PARDON ME, ANDREA GOULETTE, AND ALSO
NUMBER 24 LIZETTE CANTU. A TURNOVER THERE. AND NOT WHAT SOUTH
MOUNTAIN NEEDED, AS THEY TRAIL 63-47. WHAT A HUGE QUARTER, JEFF
SAID, BY GLENDALE, 32 POINTS TO 22. THEY’VE HAD
BALANCED SCORING. THEY’VE GOT FIVE PLAYERS
WITH 7 POINTS OR MORE IN THIS GAME. A 3 POINTER UP AND NO GOOD
BY GLENDALE THERE AS CLARK GETS THE REBOUND. PUSHING IT UP THE COURT
RIGHT AWAY IS GOULETTE, CALLING OUT THE
OFFENSE THERE. KAYLA SMITH PLAYING
WITH 4 FOULS, MIKE. NICE UP THERE, BUT AGAIN,
A LITTLE BIT TOO FAR INTO THE HOOP, CAN’T GET IT TO
GO IN, BUT GLENDALE KNOCKS IT OUT. LOOKS LIKE MAREENA DENHAM
MAY HAVE TOUCHED THAT LAST. NO GOOD COMING
BACK THE OTHER WAY. AND LOOK AT KESSLER-KLEIN,
RIGHT DOWN THE LANE. AND OH, THAT IS GOING TO
BE — THAT’S IT FOR CLARK. I THOUGHT IT
WAS OFFENSIVE. OH, IT IS OFFENSIVE. WELL, KLEIN HAS HAD A
BIG GAME HERE, MIKE, 12 POINTS, 4 BLOCKS,
MULTITUDE OF REBOUNDS. AND THAT IS JORDAN’S
THIRD FOUL THERE. AND YEAH, SHE HAS
HAD A COMPLETE GAME. SHE, AGAIN, WAS A
SPARK DEFENSIVELY. AS THE JUMPER FROM THE TOP
OF THE KEY, LONG THERE BY CLARK. REBOUND COMES
DOWN TO DENHAM. SHE GETS IT OUT
TO ALEXIS SMITH. AND NOW KESSLER-KLEIN
WITH THE BALL ON THE RIGHT WING. AND SHE GOES IN THE LANE. THROWS IT BACK UP TOP. JADA SMITH HAS TO
REACH TO HER RIGHT. PUTS UP THE 3 AND
JADA SMITH SINKS IT. 66-47. AND MIKE, GLENDALE CAME
INTO THIS GAME THE 10TH BEST OUT OF 12 TEAMS
IN 3-POINT PERCENTAGE. GLENDALE 10TH
OUT OF THE 12. AND THE 3 BALL HAS REALLY
BEEN THE DIFFERENCE IN THIS GAME TONIGHT. I WAS GOING TO SAY,
NEITHER TEAM, I MEAN, SOUTH MOUNTAIN WAS LAST AT
OVER 20%, GLENDALE AT 28%, JEFF, ABSOLUTELY. AND SOUTH MOUNTAIN HAS
ONE THREE-POINT PLAY THIS ENTIRE GAME. JADA SMITH BURIED
THAT SHOT THERE. SO 66-47. AND KESSLER-KLEIN
AGAIN WITH THE HOOP. AND THAT MAKES IT 68-47. NINE THREE-POINT GOALS
FOR GLENDALE IN THIS GAME. LOOK AT THAT, LOLIC
GETS THE BALL. SHE’S GOING DO BEAT
GOULETTE DOWN THE COURT, PUTS IT UP WITH THE RIGHT
HAND AND SCOOPS IT IT. AND NOW 70-47 THE SCORE. GLENDALE LOOKING TO
AVENGE THAT 10-POINT LOSS. WE SEE LOLIC VERY, VERY
HAPPY THERE, COACH. IT’S A BIG 15-0
RUN FOR GLENDALE. WELL, 15-0, LIKE JEFF SAID, AND
THEY TAKE A FULL TIMEOUT. 70-47, MORE IN THE FOURTH
QUARTER COMING UP HERE FROM GLENDALE
ON MCTV SPORTS. GAUCHOS FAITHFUL HERE. AND YOU SEE THEM HANGING
AROUND THIS FOR THE WOMEN’S GAME. THEY ARE VERY HAPPY. THE LADY GAUCHOS UP 70-47. THE MEN’S GAME CROWD
FILING IN FOR THAT AS WELL. BRINGING THE BALL UP THE
COURT IS ANDREA GOULETTE FOR SOUTH MOUNTAIN, TRIES
TO GET IT TO HER TEAMMATE CLARK, BUT IT’S
TURNED OVER. A TOUGH PASS THERE, 7:15
LEFT TO GO IN THIS GAME. AND GLENDALE IN
MAJOR CONTROL. AND WE WILL SEE IF — JADA
SMITH THOUGHT ABOUT THE 3, JUST COULDN’T
GET IN RHYTHM. SO DECIDES TO
TAKE A DRIBBLE. GOES INTO THE LANE, TRIES
TO BOUNCE A PASS TO SEGAL, IS BARELY ABLE
TO HANDLED IT. GETS IT UP TO
KESSLER-KLEIN. AND NOW LOLIC WITH 9 ON
THE SHOT CLOCK HAS IT. KESSLER-KLEIN, SHE’LL TAKE
THAT 3, ROLLS AROUND AND OUT AND A REBOUND
FOR WOMACK. NICE SOFT TOUCH THERE BY
JORDYN KESLER-KLEIN, JUST CAN GET IT TO GO. NICE SPIN MOVE
ON THE BASELINE. UP OFF THE GLASS
FOR NELSON. AND THAT’S ARIEL NELSON’S
10TH POINT OF THE GAME. SO 70-49. ALEXIS SMITH GETS IT
OVER TO KESSLER-KLEIN. IVY COTTON — LOOK
AT KESSLER-KLEIN. SHE ROLLS TO THE HOOP,
GETS THE PASS, AND GETS THE HOOP. 72-49. 16 POINTS FOR KLEIN. THAT WAS A GREAT ASSIST,
A NICE LITTLE TWO-MAN GAME WITH JADA SMITH. AND THAT TIME WOMACK WILL
BE FOULED BY — TWO BODIES DOWN THERE. NOW A COUPLE OF
PLAYOFF SCENARIOS HERE. WE’VE GOT PHOENIX COLLEGE,
SCOTTSDALE BOTH TIED FOR THE NUMBER THREE SEED. NOW, WE LIKE TO REMIND YOU
IN THIS CONFERENCE THEY TAKE THE TOP FOUR IN EACH
OF DIVISION I AND DIVISION II. AS COTTON MISSES THE SHOT. SO GLENDALE COMES
IN TWO GAMES BACK. IVY COTTON MISSED
THAT THREE. JADA SMITH, A LITTLE TOO
HAPPY AT THE THREE-POINT LINE. AND THAT WAS WAY SHORT. COTTON CALLING FOR
THE BALL ON THE WING. FINALLY GETS IT. OH, A NICE PASS. AS CUTTING THROUGH THE
LANE THERE NICELY WAS KAYLA CLARK,
GETS THE HOOP. AND MAKES IT 72-51. AS CLARK, AGAIN, PICKED UP
THE FOULS, BUT, JEFF, I AM NOT TRYING TO MAKE A
SILVER LINING, BUT WITH 7 PLAYERS AND THEY GOT TO
WITHIN 6 — AS THE 3 IS UP AND NO GOOD BY ALEXIS
SMITH — BUT COACH JACKSON TALKED ABOUT THE FIGHT. YOU GOT TO LIKE THAT,
BECAUSE THEY DEFINITELY WENT TO WORK THIS GAME
AND TRYING TO MAKE STUFF HAPPEN. JUST MISSED A LOT
OF EASY SHOTS. RIGHT THERE WOMACK
TRAVELS, BUT THEY FOUGHT IN THE WHOLE GAME. YOU SAID THEY WOULD
FIGHT, AND THEY HAVE. I KNOW THEY ARE DOWN
72-51, BUT FOR A TEAM THAT’S ONLY WON 5 GAMES
OVERALL, THREE GAMES IN CONFERENCE, THEY
DEFINITELY HAVE A DIFFERENT ATTITUDE THAN YOU
MIGHT EXPECT THIS TIME OF YEAR. YEAH, YOU KNOW, WE WERE
TALKING TO COACH JOHNSON BEFORE THE GAME, DEREK
JOHNSON, ONE OF THE ASSISTANT COACHES FOR COACH
BRYON JACKSON OF SOUTH MOUNTAIN. AND HE SAID, YOU KNOW,
LOOK, YOU KNOW, THIS IS A PROGRAM THAT WENT WINLESS
FOR THE LAST TWO SEASONS. YOU KNOW, THEY
COME IN HERE. THEY’VE BEEN PLAYING
SHORTHANDED IN EACH OF THE LAST THREE YEARS, THIS
SEASON NO DIFFERENT. THEY ARE 5-14 COMING IN. THIS IS A TEAM, ESPECIALLY
IF WOMACK COMES BACK NEXT YEAR, SHE’S JUST A
FRESHMAN, I THINK YOU’RE GOING TO SEE SOME
FOUR-YEAR SCHOOLS LOOKING AT HERE. ABSOLUTELY. WHEN YOUR AVERAGING
A DOUBLE DOUBLE, AND YOU’RE CLEANING UP ON THE
BOARD AS HER HEIGHT. AGAIN, NOT THAT SHE’S
CRAZY SHORT — SHE MUST HAVE HEARD YOU TALKING
ABOUT HER, JEFF, THAT WAS A HECK OF A REBOUND THERE. SHE WAS ALMOST OUT OF
POSITION, REACHES BACK, AND PULLS IT DOWN. NOW SHE GETS — JUST
DRAGGED THAT FOOT. SHE MISSES THE
HOOP ANYWAY. AND, YEAH, TWO YEARS COACH
JACKSON TELLING ME HE TOOK OVER A DAY BEFORE
THE SEASON STARTED. ONLY FIVE — HE HAD ONLY
5 PLAYERS ON THE TEAM. SO THEY HAD TO PLAY THE WHOLE
TIME, THE WHOLE 40 MINUTES. 3 OF THEM WERE
SOCCER PLAYERS. AND 3 OF THEM WERE
SOCCER PLAYERS. AND I SAID, WELL, I WAS
KIDDING — I SAID, YOU DIDN’T HAVE TO WORRY. CONDITION WISE THEY WERE
THERE, BUT AGAIN PLAYING BASEBALL — AND LAST, YEAR
PLAYERS HE ONLY HAD 7 PLAYERS. THIS YEAR, I KNOW ONLY
7 ACTUALLY SUITING OUT TONIGHT, BECAUSE OF
INJURES, ACTUALLY HAD 11 ON THE TEAM, BUT HE SAID
THEY WON SOME GAMES. THEY GOT THAT LITTLE
BIT TASTE OF WINNING. AGAIN, YOU’RE RIGHT, YOU
CAN BUILD AROUND WOMACK. THIS TEAM, AGAIN, I KNOW
WE SEE THE SCORE — JEFF, THAT WAS A FOUL THERE ON
SOUTH MOUNTAIN, BUT 72-51, BUT, AGAIN, IT’S
ONE OF THOSE THINGS. SO WOMACK PICKS UP HER
4TH, BUT YOU LOOK AT IT — AS DENHAM WILL GO TO THE
FREE THROW LINE TO SHOOT TWO. YOU LOOK AT IT TO WIN
FIVE GAMES, LAST TWO YEARS WINLESS, THEY BEAT THIS
GLENDALE TEAM ONCE. HE’S GOT IT GOING IN
THE RIGHT DIRECTION. HE’S GOES, YOU KNOW WHAT
THE LAST THREE SEASONS THOUGH, NOT ONE TIME, LIKE
I WAS SAYING, HAS A TEAM JUST KIND OF PUT THEIR
HEADS IN THE SAND AND SAID, OH, FORGOT IT. WE’RE NOT GOING TO
SHOW UP FOR A GAME. WE’RE NOT GOING
TO PLAY HARD. HE GOES, THEY’VE
PLAYED HARD. THEY MAY HAVE NOT DONE THE
BEST OF THINGS — AS THE FREE THROW WAS
NO GOOD THERE. BUT, YEAH, IT’S VERY
INTERESTING, JEFF, HOW THEY HAVE BEEN
ABLE TO FIGHT. YEAH, YOU GOT A
LITTLE BIT DEPTH. IT WILL DEFINITELY
HELP THIS TEAM. WELL, I THINK NOW THEY
BELIEVE THAT THEY HAVE SOMETHING TO BUILD ON. AND A NICE LEFT-HAND MOVE
THERE BY KAYLA CLARK. AND KAYLA CLARK
ONLY A FRESHMAN. SO YOU CAN BUILD A TEAM
AROUND KAYLA CLARK AND WOMACK. NO QUESTION ABOUT IT. AND REALLY IVY COTTON, SHE
COULD BE AN OUTSTANDING POINT GUARD IN THIS CONFERENCE
NEXT YEAR. ABSOLUTELY. AS CLARK MISSES THE
FREE THROW IS NO GOOD. SO YOU’VE GOT 3
ELEMENTS RIGHT THERE. YOU GOT AN INSIDE PRESENCE
WITH WOMACK WHO CAN RUN THE FLOOR AND DO IT ALL. YOU’VE GOT COTTON, WHO
MIGHT BE THE FASTEST POINT GUARD IN THIS CONFERENCE,
AT LEAST IN DIVISION II. AND THEN YOU GOT KAYLA
CLARK WHO CAN SURE UP THE BOARDS AND GET YOU
SOME POINTS DOWN LOW. OH, A LATE FOUL CALL
THERE, AS GOING TO THE HOOP WAS KIARA MORGAN. AND THAT WILL
BE ON WOMACK. SO WOMACK WILL BE
CEREMONIOUSLY LEAVING THE GAME. WELL, SHE’LL LEAVE WITH
24 POINTS, THE GAME HIGH SCORER. 16 FOR JORDYN
KESLER-KLEIN. AND 15 FOR ALEXIS SMITH. KIARA MORGAN MISSES
THE FIRST FREE THROW. AND 12 FOR JADA SMITH. AND JEFF, WE TALK ABOUT
THE STANDINGS, MESA — PIMA HAD A LITTLE BIT OF
A LEAD ON MESA A FEW WEEKS AGO. AND NOW LOOK AT
THIS MESA 14-3. THEY PLAYED THE LAST GAME
OF THE REGULAR SEASON. MESA BEAT PIMA THE FIRST
TIME THEY PLAYED THEM, SO IT WILL BE A HUGE MATCH UP
FOR MESA AND PIMA THERE. MESA COULD HAVE THE NUMBER
ONE SEED AND COULD MAKE PIMA COME UP FOR ANOTHER
ONE OF THOSE CLASSIC DIVISION II CHAMPIONSHIP
GAMES WE HAVE SEEN THROUGHOUT THE YEARS. BUT NEVER COUNT OUT
PHOENIX COLLEGE AND KRISTI KINCAID, BECAUSE THEY WERE
IN THE SAME BOAT A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO. AND THEY WENT ON A RUN
AND DID VERY WELL AT NATIONALS. AS KAYLA CLARK CONTINUES
TO POUR IN THE SCORES. SHE’S GOT 12. AND THEY’VE GOT A YOUNG
LADY WHO PUT 41 UP ON MCTV WEDNESDAY — LAST
WEDNESDAY IN ALEXIS DELGADO. WHEN YOU’VE GOT A PLAYER
OF THAT CALIBER, YOU’RE DANGEROUS ANY TIME YOU
GO ON A BASKETBALL COURT. YEAH, THAT HELPED HER EARN
HER DIVISION II PLAYER OF THE WEEK. I WAS GETTING TO
PHOENIX COLLEGE. I WAS SAYING MESA AND PIMA
— WE TALKED ABOUT PHOENIX AND SCOTTSDALE AT 7-10. THIS GLENDALE TEAM NOW
GOING TO GO UP TO 6-12 AS THEY ARE UP 73-55. BUT MESA AND PIMA ARE
GOING TO BE VERY TOUGH TO BEAT. AND FOR MESA, I WAS
TELLING YOU, I’LL HAVE TO CHECK WITH COACH KORI
STEPHENSON, BUT THEY BEAT CENTRAL AT HOME LAST
WEEK BY 4 POINTS 65-61. AND I WANT TO SAY IN HER
CAREER THAT IS THE FIRST TIME — HER ILLUSTRIOUS
CAREER THERE AT MESA, THAT SHE HAS BEATEN CENTRAL. LIM LARSON STARTED IT
COACH GOOCH TOOK OVER. AND THEY’VE BEEN ROLLING. THIS IS THE FIRST TIME IN
A LONG TIME THAT YOU’VE SEEN CENTRAL UP TOP IN
THE STANDINGS OVERALL. COCHISE IS THIS YEAR, ON
THE WOMEN’S SIDE, BUT, YEAH, SO FOR COACH
STEPHENSON, THE NATIONAL TITLE — MANY, OBVIOUSLY,
DIVISION II TITLES, QUITE A FEW DIVISION II TITLES
— A NATIONAL TITLE SHE BOUGHT HOME A
FEW YEARS AGO. HER TEAM BROUGHT
HOME, I SHOULD SAY. DENHAM GETS
THE HOOP THERE. BUT NOW SHE HAS FINALLY BEAT,
SLAYED THE DRAGON, IN CENTRAL. CENTRAL PROBABLY THE
GREATEST NATIONAL JUNIOR COLLEGE ATHLETIC
ASSOCIATION WOMEN’S BASKETBALL PROGRAM,
NO DOUBT ABOUT IT. OF COURSE, CALIFORNIA IS
NOT INCLUDED IN THE NJCAA. AND I WOULD IMAGINE THERE
ARE SOME TEAMS OUT THERE THAT WOULD — MIGHT HAVE
DUG INTO THOSE RECORDS, BUT, I MEAN, FOR LARSON
TO HAVE A CAREER RECORD — AND WE DON’T HAVE IT IN
FRONT OF US, BUT, I MEAN, SHE’S WON LIKE A THOUSAND
GAMES WITH LESS THAN 100 LOSSES, MAYBE
EVEN LESS THAN 50 LOSSES. IT’S JUST MIND BOGGLING. IT’S LIKE SHE’S WON
97% OF THE GAMES. OF COURSE, SHE RETIRED
A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO. AND THAT’S A
GREAT PROGRAM. WE WERE TALKING ABOUT
KRISTI KINCAID OVER AT PHOENIX COLLEGE. SHE PLAYED FOR
COACH LARSON. WELL, THE ATHLETIC
DIRECTOR COACH EZELL PLAYED FOR COACH LARSON.
SAMANTHAT EZELL. YOU KNOW, THEY’VE DONE A
GREAT JOB OVER THERE AT PHOENIX. SHE’S BEEN A GREAT ATHLETIC
DIRECTOR FOR THAT PROGRAM. AND PHOENIX COLLEGE,
OF COURSE, THEY HAD A NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP TWO
YEARS AGO WITH THEIR MEN’S BASKETBALL PROGRAM. FIRST TIME IN ARIZONA. THE SAME YEAR THE MESA
WOMEN’S BROUGHT IT HOME IT TOO. AND THEN MESA WON IT
IN BASEBALL TOO AT THE NATIONAL LEVEL. YEAH, COACH SIRELLI HAS
BEEN BE THERE A LONG TIME. DEFINITELY — YOU KNOW,
A LOT OF COACHES ARE DESERVING, BUT YOU WORK AT
IT AT THIS LEVEL FOR THAT LONG AND YOU STAY WITH IT. AND I WAS KIDDING AROUND
EARLIER, YOU AND I KID AROUND EVERY YEAR, AND I
KNOW THAT ALWAYS MAKES HIM UNCOMFORTABLE CALLING
— AS ANDREA GOULETTE PLAYED HARD PICKS
UP HER 5TH FOUL. SO THEY ARE
PLAYING WITH 5. THESE ARE THE FINAL 5 ON
THE COURT, THE LAST 2:29 LEFT TO GO. YOU CAN PLAY WITH 4. YOU CAN. YOU CAN. HEY, MAYBE WE CAN
— SUIT YOU UP. OH, NO WAY. I’D HAVE TO CALL THE GAME. YOU GO OUT THERE. YOU SHOW THEM THE JUMPER. 75-59 THE SCORE. ALEXIS SMITH INBOUND, GETS
IT OVER TO JADA SMITH, RIGHT BACK DOWN TO ALEXIS. SEGAL GETS IT
OVER TO LOLIC. AGAIN, THEY’LL CHEW UP
SHOT CLOCK, CHEW UP A LITTLE BIT OF TIME. AS AGAIN, LIKE I SAID,
THEY ARE UP 75-59. THEY MOVE THE BALL AROUND. NOW THE SHOT
CLOCK IS UNDER 10. AS LOLIC GETS IT
OVER TO DENHAM. SHE GOES TO HER RIGHT. TWO SECONDS LEFT
IN THE LANE. AND THE BALL
IS TURNED OVER. NICE TAKE AWAY BY KAYLA
CLARK, GOING AT LOLIC WITH A NICE JUMP STOP. WELL, A LITTLE
CONTACT, BUT NO CALL. JEFF, JUST LIKE THAT,
KAYLA CLARK HAS HER 6TH POINT OF THIS QUARTER. AND 14 ON THE GAME. SHE’S QUIETLY PUT SOME
NICE NUMBERS UP ON THE BOARD IN WHAT PROBABLY
WILL BE A LOSING CAUSE. SHE HIT THE
TWO FREE THOWS. I APOLOGIZE. I FORGOT TO
COUNT THOSE TOO. SO 75-61. THIS YOUNG LADY WITH THE
BASKETBALL HERE FROM TEL AVIV, ISRAEL. A LONG WAYS FROM HOME. I WAS GOING TO SAY, A LONG
WAY TO END UP AT GLENDALE COMMUNITY COLLEGE. AND A SHOT CLOCK VIOLATION
THERE AS LOLIC HITS THE FLOOR. YOU KNOW, IT’S INTERESTING
WITH THE MARICOPA COMMUNITY COLLEGES, THE
INTERNATIONAL OUTREACH, SO TO SPEAK, IS IN
EXISTENCE HERE. AND, YOU KNOW, WE HAVE HAD
A CHANCE AT MCTV FOR OUR SHOW “INSIDE MARICOPA
SPORTS” WE DID A PIECE ON THE MESA TENNIS PROGRAM
WHO HAD A MULTITUDE OF PLAYERS FROM THE OUTSIDE
THE UNITED STATES. SO IT’S GOOD TO SEE
THE DIVERSITY AT THE MARICOPAS. IT’S ALWAYS BEEN A
TOUGH CONFERENCE. AS NELSON SCORES THERE. IT’S ALWAYS BEEN, SPORTS
WISE, IT’S ALWAYS BEEN A VERY, VERY SOLID
CONFERENCE, JEFF. WHETHER YOU’RE TALKING
FOOTBALL, BASKETBALL, BASEBALL — PEOPLE LOOK
THAT AT THAT — YOU’VE GOT SOFTBALL, OBVIOUSLY,
PHOENIX COLLEGE. BUT THEY’VE DONE OVER
THERE — I MEAN, GLENDALE — OBVIOUSLY WITH
FOOTBALL BEEN VERY SOLID. IN BASKETBALL — BUT JUST
IN GENERAL, I MEAN, MESA, MEN’S AND WOMEN’S
BASKETBALL. I MEAN, FOOTBALL HAS THAT
POWER, SCOTTSDALE AS WELL TOO. SO IT’S — YOU WILL
SEE IT FROM ALL OVER. AND AGAIN, IF YOU’RE
TRYING TO GET COLLEGE CREDITS AND WANT TO SAVE
A LITTLE BIT, IT DOESN’T HELP — BUT TALENTED
ENOUGH TO COME PLAY IS ALEXIS SMITH YOU
SEE ROLLS THAT IN. SOUTH MOUNTAIN GOING ON A
LITTLE BIT OF A RUN TRYING TO GET BACK IN IT, BUT
THEY JUST DUG TOO MUCH OF HOLE, JEFF, AS SMITH
MISSES THE SECOND FREE THROW. AND NOW JADA SMITH
GETS IT UP TO LOLIC. FINAL 45 SECONDS
IN THIS GAME. WELL, MIKE, THE 15-0 RUN
IN THE LATE STAGES OF THAT THIRD PERIOD, THAT WAS
THE BIG DIFFERENCE. AND I THINK WOMACK MAYBE
EVEN GETTING INTO SOME FOUL TROUBLES, THE TOP
SCORER FOR THE SOUTH MOUNTAIN COUGARS, MAY HAVE
PLAYED INTO WHAT MAY BE A DOUBLE-DIGIT LOSS HERE
FOR SOUTH MOUNTAIN AT GLENDALE. AND TRAVEL THERE BY CLARK,
BUT, YEAH, IT WILL BE VERY — YOU’RE RIGHT,
PC WENT INTO MESA. COACH KINCAID DID IT. IT WAS A LITTLE
OF AN UPSET. MESA JUST COULDN’T
GET ANYTHING GOING. PC KEPT IT CLOSE. WE WERE THERE
FOR THAT GAME. AND YEAH, YOU KNOW, PIMA
OR MESA IS PLAYING A LOWER SEED IN THAT
CHAMPIONSHIP GAME. I KNOW THEY’RE NOT GOING
TO OVERLOOK THEM, BUT, YEAH, THE WAY MESA HAS
BEEN PLAYING, THE WAY THEY’VE COME ON
TO OVERTAKE PIMA. AND COACH STEPHENSON,
AGAIN, HAS HER TEAM ROLLING. AS THAT BALL GETS KNOCKED
OUT IN THE FINAL 11. 1 SECONDS. I THINK A CREDIT SHOULD GO
OUT TO OUR OFFICIALS HERE TODAY. I THINK THEY’VE CALLED
A VERY GOOD GAME HERE TONIGHT. YEAH MIKE BARBER, TREA
DANIELS, AND THE LEAD OFFICIAL, RICK SHOWERS. AGAIN, THEY’VE BEEN
CONSISTENT ON BOTH ENDS AS GETTING IT THERE
IS KIARA MORGAN. AND THAT MAKES IT 78-63. AND THE JUMPER FROM THE
FREE THROW LINE, KAYLA CLARK, PUTS IT IN. AND THAT WILL MAKE IT
78-65 IS THE FINAL, AS CLARK GETS THAT SHOT. WE’LL STEP ASIDE AND
WRAP IT IT FROM HERE AT GLENDALE COMING
UP ON MCTV SPORTS. ALL RIGHT. BACK HERE AT GLENDALE
COMMUNITY COLLEGE WHERE THE GAUCHOS COME
UP WITH A BIG WIN. THEY NEEDED A WIN COMING
INTO TONIGHT’S ACTION, TWO GAMES BEHIND FOR THE
PLAYOFF SPOT, THAT LAST PLAYOFF SPOT. JORDYN KESLER-KLEIN
JOINS ME NOW. AND JORDAN, YOU
HAD A GREAT GAME. YOU HAD A GREAT FIRST
HALF; 16 POINTS, 4 OR 5 BLOCKS. HOW DO GUYS FEEL ABOUT
YOUR CHANCES OF GETTING INTO THE PLAYOFFS? ARE YOU GUYS
CONFIDENT RIGHT NOW? WE’RE PRETTY CONFIDENT. YOU KNOW, WE WANT TO COME
OUT STRONG IN OUR NEXT COUPLE OF GAMES, PLAY AS
A TEAM, WIN AS A TEAM. WHAT DO YOU GUYS GOT TO
DO DIFFERENTLY TO — YOU KNOW, YOU GOT
FOUR GAMES LEFT. YOU STILL GOT ONE GAME
AGAINST PHOENIX COLLEGE, A TEAM YOU’RE CHASING. WHAT DO YOU GUYS GOT TO IMPROVE
ON TO GET INTO THE PLAYOFFS? I THINK MENTAL TOUGHNESS. YOU KNOW, SOME OF US JUST
LET THE GIRLS GET IN OUR HEADS. WE KNOW WE’RE BETTER
THAN — WE CAN BE BETTER. WE CAN BEAT THEM, JUST IF
WE CAN PULL IT OUT AS A TEAM. AND WE HAVE TO
DO IT AS A TEAM. WHAT ARE YOUR GOALS GOING BEYOND
BASKETBALL HERE AT GLENDALE? LIKE CAREER WISE? FBI, HOPEFULLY. OH, REALLY. AND HOW’D YOU GET
AN INTEREST IN THAT? I WANT TO HAVE A PHYSICAL
JOB, AND MY UNCLE IS A COP, SO. OKAY. ALL RIGHT. WELL, YOU HAD A
GREAT FIRST HALF. YOU GUYS FINISHED OFF. YOU HAD A 15-0 RUN
IN THE SECOND HALF. GLENDALE GETS THE VICTORY. MIKE WILL BE BACK WITH THE
COACH IN JUST A MOMENT. BACK HERE AT GLENDALE
WHERE THE LADY GAUCHOS AVENGE A LOSS
FROM LAST MONTH. AND THEY BEAT
THE LADY COUGARS. COACH JENNIFER
NIEBLING JOINING ME. COACH, CONGRATULATIONS
ON THE WIN. THANK YOU. A GOOD FIRST QUARTER. THEY CAME BACK HARD
IN THE SECOND QUARTER. GOING INTO HALFTIME, WHAT
WERE YOU TELLING YOUR TEAM TO CALM THEM DOWN? YEAH, WELL, WE FIGURED
IF OUR D WAS SOLID, IF WE KEPT THEM TO ONE SHOT,
WE DIDN’T PUT THEM ON THE FOUL LINE, DIDN’T GIVE
THEM EASY BASKETS ON THE TURNOVERS, THEN THEY
COULD STOP THEM. BUT WE TEND TO HURT
OURSELVES A LITTLE BIT IN THAT SECOND QUARTER. THEY GOT A COUPLE OF
BREAKAWAY LAY UPS. THEY LIVED AT
THE FOUL LINE. BUT ONCE WE SURE THAT UP,
WE KNEW THAT WE COULD STOP THEM. WELL, YOU TALK ABOUT
LIVING AT THE FOUL LINE. THEY ALSO MISSED A LOT
OF EASY SHOTS AS WELL. I MEAN, DOWN LOW, YOUR
TEAM HAD AN — ESCAPING A LITTLE BIT THERE. IT HAD TO FEEL CONFIDENT,
BECAUSE QUITE A FEW BLOCKED SHOTS IN THIS
FIRST HALF, SETTING THE DEFENSIVE TEMPO. DID YOU FEEL THAT CARRIED
ON INTO THE SECOND HALF AS A GAME WENT ON? YEAH, OUR TEAM JUST —
SOMETIMES THEY SACRIFICE POSITION TO
GET THE BLOCKS. AND TONIGHT THEY
GOT AWAY WITH IT. JORDAN IS REALLY LONG. MAREENA IS REALLY LONG. BUT I FEEL LIKE WE
GOT ENOUGH STOPS. YOU KNOW, WE FORCED
A LOT OF TURNOVERS. WE STARTED DOUBLING
IN THE POST THERE. AND WHEN THEY DID NOT EVEN
GET A SHOT OFF, THAT’S THE BEST DEFENSE FOR US. AND THEN AT THE OTHER END,
ALEXIS MAKING SHOTS, JADA MAKING SHOTS, EMINA
MAKING IT ALL HAPPEN. I WAS REALLY HAPPY
FOR THOSE GUYS. YEAH, THAT THIRD QUARTER,
YOU COME OUT, YOU SCORED MORE POINTS IN THE THIRD
QUARTER THAN DURING THE FIRST HALF. YOU DOUBLED IT UP. THEY COULDN’T
REALLY DO ANYTHING. I KNOW THEY’RE
PLAYING WITH 7. COACH WAS TRYING TO
GET CREATIVE WITH THEIR SUBSTITUTIONS PATTERN, BUT
YOU DID A PRETTY GOOD JOB ON WOMACK TOO, LEADING HER
TEAM IN SCORING, LEADING THE CONFERENCE
IN REBOUNDS. AND WE SAW ONE IN
THE FIRST HALF. BUT THAT THIRD QUARTER;
WHAT WAS KIND OF THE TURNING POINT THERE? I THINK, YOU KNOW,
YOU PLAY ENOUGH GAMES. AND THESE GUYS BEAT
US EARLIER THIS YEAR. THE GIRLS JUST SAY
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. AND WE KNEW WE COULD SPEED
THE GAME UP AND WITH EMINA AT THE POINT. AND WHEN SHE STARTS GOING,
EVERYBODY FEEDS OFF THAT. AND WHEN SHE’S IN THERE
PENETRATING AND KICKING OUT AND WE’RE GETTING OPEN
THREES, EVERYBODY GETS FIRED UP. AND I THINK OUR
ENERGY JUST LIFTED. AND THEN LASTLY, I KNOW
YOU’RE A LITTLE BIT BEHIND THE EIGHT BALL IN THE PLAYOFFS,
BUT YOU’RE RIGHT THERE. COMING IN TONIGHT, TWO
GAMES BEHIND SCOTTSDALE AND PHOENIX, I KNOW IT DEPENDS
ON WHAT THEY DID TONIGHT. YEAH. YOUR TEAM IS KIND
OF GETTING HOT. IF YOU WERE TO GET IN THE
PLAYOFFS, CAN YOU SURPRISE SOME PEOPLE? CAN YOU MAKE THAT PUSH? THAT WOULD — I MEAN, I
THINK IT WOULD A GREAT ACCOMPLISHMENT FOR
THIS TEAM TO GET THERE. BUT THEN MESA AND PIMA
ARE A WHOLE ANOTHER STORY. SO WE GOT PHOENIX
HERE NEXT WEEK. SO THAT’S THE NEXT
BIG ONE FOR US. SO I AM GLAD WE
GOT THIS ONE. AND THEN WE CAN FOCUS
NEXT WEEK ON PHOENIX. YEAH, DEFINITELY
BUILD A MOMENTUM. COACH, CONGRATULATIONS
ON THE WIN. WE’LL STEP ASIDE. WE’LL COME BACK AND JEFF
AND I WILL WRAP IT UP HERE FROM GLENDALE
COMMUNITY COLLEGE. 78-65, THE FINAL. BACK HERE AT GLENDALE
COMMUNITY COLLEGE. THE LADY GAUCHOS WIN IN
EASY FASHION TONIGHT OVER THE LADY COUGARS. IT GOT CLOSE IN THE
SECOND QUARTER, JEFF, BUT GLENDALE, AGAIN, THEY WERE
ABLE TO JUST TO DO ENOUGH IN THAT THIRD QUARTER DID
MORE THAN ENOUGH TO BLOW THIS GAME OPEN AND WIN IT. WELL, IT’S IRONIC
THAT THEY CAME IN HERE STRUGGLING FROM
THREE-POINT RANGE. AND THEY HIT 9
THREE POINTERS. AND THAT WAS A BIG PART
OF THAT 15-TO-NOTHING RUN THAT THEY HAD AT THE END
OF THIRD PERIOD TO BREAK LOOSE FROM THIS TOUGH COURAGE
TEAM, PLAYING SHORTHANDED. ONLY 7 PLAYERS
HERE TONIGHT. THEY GET 24 FROM THEIR SUPERSTAR
WOMACK, BUT IT WASN’T ENOUGH. YEAH, AND WOMACK
FOULS OUT. TWO PLAYERS FOUL OUT. SO THEY FINISH THE GAME
WITH JUST 5 PLAYERS ABLE TO BE ON THE COURT. NOT TOO LONG OF A TIME. BUT AGAIN, FOR COACH
JACKSON, WE TALKED ABOUT IN THE BROADCAST, HEADED
IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION, BUT IN JUST TALKING TO
COACH NIEBLING, YOU KIND OF SAW THE LOOK
ON HER FACE. SHE KNOWS THEY ARE A LITTLE BIT
BEHIND THE EIGHT BALL. SHE GOES, WELL, MESA AND
PIMA ARE ON ANOTHER LEVEL, BUT SHE’S STOKED ABOUT
THAT GAME NEXT WEEK THEY HAVE AGAINST PHOENIX
COLLEGE, JEFF, BECAUSE IF THEY CAN BEAT PHOENIX
COLLEGE, THAT IS GOING TO BE HUGE FOR THE GAUCHOS,
AND MAYBE, MAYBE GETTING THAT 4TH PLAYOFF SEED. WELL, WHEN YOU LOOK AT
WHAT GLENDALE BRINGS TO THE COURT, I MEAN, TONIGHT
THEY PROVED EVIDENT. THEY HAVE HAD SIX PLAYERS
WITH 8 POINTS OR MORE, A LOT OF BALANCED SCORING. IF THEY CAN IMPROVE THEIR
OUTSIDE SHOOTING THOSE OPEN LOOKS, I REALLY
BELIEVER GLENDALE IS GOING TO BE A TEAM TO CONTEND
WITH DOWN THE STRETCH HERE. YEAH, YOU TALKED TO JORDYN
KESLER-KLEIN AND HER DEFENSE IN THE FIRST HALF. SHE MAY NOT HAVE A LOT
OFFENSE, BUT HER DEFENSE IN THAT FIRST QUARTER
DEFINITELY SPARKED THE TEAM. SO WE’LL SEE WHAT
THE GAUCHOS CAN DO. AGAIN, THEY WIN 78-65. SO FOR JEFF LOWERY AND OUR
ENTIRE MCTV CREW, THANKS FOR JOINING US HERE
ON MCTV SPORTS. AGAIN, THE LADY GAUCHOS
WIN AT HOME 78-65. GOODNIGHT FROM GLENDALE
COMMUNITY COLLEGE.
