The formula worked well once more Tuesday night as the Lady Wildcats crushed invading Fairview 57-20 in non-league action at Jefferson High School.
The stats don’t lie: the Wildcats (2-1) forced 31 miscues (11 of their own) — even throwing in a 46-38 winning of the backboards (22-16 offensive) — that accounted for a 64-44 disparity in field-goal attempts.
The Red and White finished making 22 shots (including 4-of-5 3-balls) for 34.3 percent to the Lady Apaches seven (1-of-3 triples) for 15.9 percent.
“We are in a much better flow offensively when the ball is moving up and down the court. That is our game and we’re at our best in that style,” Hoffman said. “We moved the ball better as the game wore on, using the skip pass and so forth. We are getting more aggressive taking the ball to the basket as well.”
