Next Stop For East Girls Basketball: Playoffs

Titan Girls Go 7-1 In District Second Half

East girls basketball, heading into the playoffs with momentum.

With their 48-38 win over West Tuesday night, the Titan girls finished district in third place at 13-3, going 7-1 in the second half of district. Giani Wimbish-Gay once again led the way for East with 18 points, followed by older sister Leilani with 13. I asked Giani and head coach Yulonda Wimbish-North about their team’s defense and offense in the win.

Said coach Wimbish-North, “I thought we had some moments where we were in passing lanes, being able to get some steals and to score in transition. That’s probably the thing that probably gets us going. ”

Said Giani, “It was off. But we made up for it by making the right decisions on our two-on-one’s and three-on-two’s.”

East girls basketball takes on Tuloso-Midway in the 5A Bi-District playoffs Tuesday night at 8:00 at Woodsboro.
