The Southwestern Lady Warriors traveled to Clay County on Monday night, and after the game, maybe head coach Junior Molden summed it up best.
“My team showed back up tonight,” stated the Lady Warriors head coach.
Indeed, it did.
Southwestern absolutely pummeled homestanding Clay County on Monday night, rolling to a 67-31 victory to improve to a 12th-Region best, 15-3 mark on the season.
Alexa Smiddy led a very balanced scoring effort for Southwestern with 12 points, followed by 11 points from Kennedy Harris, 10 points from Jenna Wood, and nine points from Regi Cundiff, who pulled down a team-high 10 rebounds in the win.
“We have number 19-ranked South Laurel at home tomorrow (Tuesday) night,” pointed out Molden after the win at Clay County.
“I’m going to find out if my team is back to buying in and playing together real quick,” he added.
In Monday’s win at Clay County, the Lady Warriors grabbed this one by throat from the outset, leading the Lady Tigers by as much as 38 points, putting this game on a running clock.
South Laurel — 13-4 on the year and ranked number 19 in the state of Kentucky — will be Southwestern’s next opponent.
That game is tonight at The Wigwam, with tip off scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
