Curry's big night helps Lakewomen advance

Niagara Gazette — Jamie Curry's triple-double helped propel the top-seeded Wilson girls basketball team over No. 4 Southwestern, 58-49, in the Class B-2 semifinals Wednesday night. 

Curry's versatile game, plus a stifling defense proved to be too much for Southwestern to handle. 

"We played such great defense in the first two quarters," Lakewomen coach Brian Baker said. "... They only had six field goals in the first half."

The Lakewomen jumped out to a 34-17 halftime lead and extended it to 52-31 after three. Baker said his team was able to build the big lead because of its play on its own half of the court.

"All year we've been able to create offense from our defense and we were able to do that (Wednesday) off of our blocks and steals," Baker said.

Curry contributed to the defense, registering 10 steals to go with 12 points, 10 rebounds and three assists. Emily Lasher led the team in scoring with 16 points, and added 11 rebounds, six steals and three assists. Dana Smith had 10 points, seven rebounds and four blocks.

The Lakewomen will play in their fourth straight Class B-2 final at 7 p.m. Saturday at Niagara County Community College when they take on second-seeded Buffalo Arts.
