SPENCERVILLE — No matter how complex an offense or defense is, the game of basketball still comes down to one thing: putting the ball in the basket.
The Elida girls couldn’t do that Saturday night versus Wapakoneta, hitting a miserable 9-of-49 from the field (2-of-13 3s) for 18.4 percent, including an 0-fer in the second period, to fall 48-24 in Division II Sectional final action at Spencerville High School.
“It doesn’t matter what kind of defense you play; if you can’t score, you aren’t going to win. We held a team like Wapak to 48 points, 23 the first half,” Elida co-coach Chrissy Billiter noted. “That’s good enough to win. The defense has never been an issue for us this year; the offense has been a struggle at times and it was tonight.”
