“In the second half, the girls shot the ball a lot better at the free throw line,” CM coach Hilma Crawford said. “Happy with balanced scoring. Got some good play from the bench.”

Crawford said Emma Redman and Rylee Long played well in sub roles for the Falcons.

“We are starting to play with a lot of energy and confidence, which will be key in the second half of the season.”

Massie led 19-14 at the half but was just 3 for 13 at the free throw line. In the second half, the Falcons were 11 for 14 at the line and outscored the Rockets 41-21.
