Dixe Inside Game Too Much for South








After sparring for the first part of the game, Dixie started working the ball inside and grew a lead.  Defensively the Greyhounds generated turnovers in the 2nd quarter and that fed into a run where Dixie held South scoreless for the entire 2nd quarter and scored 11.  Both teams used some zone and man to man during the night. And South did try to press late to attempt a comeback. But they were not able to make a serious challenge.

At halftime it was 21-6 Dixie.  South did not score until about midway through the 3rd quarter.  So Dixie's defense held them scoreless for about a quarter and a half.  At the end of 3 quarters it was 29-13 Dixie and by games end it was 39-28 when South made a late run to close the scoring gap.

The biggest difference for Dixie in the game was denying South any open shots inside and South was cold shooting from the perimeter. Faith Russell had a good night for Dixie in the post.  Meanwhile Dixie was able to work the ball inside or drive to the hoop and score from close to the basket on offense.
