HILLMAN, MI – The Hillman Tigers Girls Basketball squad was looking to follow up the guys win from Monday with a win tonight. The Tigers hosted Whittemore–Prescott who are looking for their first win of the year. Hillman just got their first win last weekend against Rogers City and were looking to even out their record with a win tonight.
Hillman quickly gets on the fast break and Nicole Barbeau has the lane to take it to the rack and she does with a nice layup. Barbeau would grab the ball again off a steal. She cuts back up the middle and passes to Julia Taratuta and the Junior gets the nice layup in the paint.
Whittemore-Prescott now with it. Walking right up to the 3-point line is Camryn Gibson. She fires the shot with a defender right in front of her and sinks it. A great shot there from the Senior.
Now Taratuta recovers the ball from the Cardinals. She quickly gets it to Saige Flaugher who puts it up just inside the 3-point line and sinks it. Flaugher is gonna get it again on another play for the Tigers. She’s gonna use her quickness on the fast break to put it up with her left and drain that layup for Hillman.
We then had some nice ball movement from Hillman. Nicole Barbeau is gonna get it in the paint then dish it back out to Saige. This time she fires and hits it from 3-point range.
Next up one freshman showcases some true toughness on this one play. Hannah Crane working inside lays it up and draws the foul to get a nice and-one for Hillman.
Following up that play was another Hillman and-one. Barbeau gives it to Taratuta, Barbeau the cuts in and gets it back. She goes for the layup and makes it despite the contact and the foul for the and-one.
Hillman gets the win and brings their record to an even 2–2 on the year. Final score is 65–46. Whittemore-Prescott will keep their road trip going as they face Hale on Friday and Hillman has the battle of the Tigers when they take on Alcona also on Friday.
