Brandon girls upend Vicksburg, 52-37

Published 11:54 am Wednesday, December 21, 2011

Brandon dominated the lane and that was enough to beat the Missy Gators at the Ridgeland Classic. Vicksburg’s top four post players combined for just four points while Brandon (11-2) got 12 points from Samantha Banks and 11 from Kristina Trigg to grab the win.

Vicksburg (4-8) is off until next week’s tournament at Mendenhall. Vicksburg coach Barbara Hartzog said her team must pick up its inside play.

“We’re getting killed in the post area,” Hartzog said. “My two smallest posts, Destinee (McCleary) and Sheridan (Morris), played the best of anybody.”
