PRINCETON—The Princeton girls basketball team came off of its long Christmas break and hosted Hobbton last week in a Carolina 1A Conference game and was without two of its senior starters for much of the game.
It didn’t matter, however, as the Bulldogs were in complete control from the get-go in cruising past the Wildcats, 52-13.
Six different Bulldogs scored in the opening quarter as Princeton quickly jumped out to a 13-1 lead after the opening stanza.
“We had a different lineup because Emily (Ricks) had gone to London over Christmas break so she wasn’t at practice and Megan Bryant had a wisdom tooth cut out so there’s two of my starters,” said Princeton coach Paula Wooten. “Some of the younger kids got a chance to play tonight and I was pleased with them.”
LeOnna Nelson was impressive during her increased playing time as the freshman was key inside for Princeton as she scored eight points and had six rebounds.
Reanna Braswell and Michaela Radford put in some important minutes for the Bulldogs as well.
