Lady Rams Surrender Second Loss to Tough South

West Hempstead varsity girls suffer defeat after a shortened week of practice.

On Friday night the Lady Rams lost to a tough Valley Stream South team 48-37 after a shortened week of practice.

"We weren't able to get into the gym to practice on Wednesday or Thursday," said Rams Head Coach, Chris Van Kovics. "The snow really messed with our schedule."

He did not take anything away from Valley Stream's performance saying they were able to win by playing to their strengths. The Lady Rams struggled they met this team on the court in late December.

"They got it to their big girl (Ugo Nwaigwe) inside, and she was able to score on us all game. They also pressed us on offense and were able to force turnovers."

Van Kovics said his team needs to slow the game down, be smart with the ball and  value each possession.

"A lot of teams in this conference want to run, but we need to play at a slower pace. Our last week is a good example of us controlling the tempo and keeping the game at a low score."

Katie Lynch had a good game, leading the team with 13 points. She was solid from the outside hitting three 3-point shots.

Nicole Christenson had 10 points off of three field goals and was 4 of 6 from the free throw line.

Freshman Angela Gracie also put in a nice performance with 8 points and collected many hard-fought rebounds.

The Lady Rams are now 3-10 (2-6) and will play at top seeded North Shore on Wednesday night at 6:30.
