On the court, it looked like a mismatch.
“The girls came into the game and our coaching staff came into the game ready,” Campbell coach Bobby Allan said. “These girls are in here every day working and that work shows up in games. When you open up a lead like that it’s about holding the lead and continuing to work hard. That’s what we did tonight.”
“She’s our quarterback on the floor,” Allan said. “She loves to come to the gym, loves to get extra shots up, and loves to go to work. I can honestly say that about all my girls this year.”
The Cougars led 34-8 at halftime and 51-17 entering the fourth.
Conant, which also entered the game 3-0, was held to two field goals in the first half. The Orioles didn’t score until 2:03 remained in the first quarter, and made their first field goal with 5:36 left in the second.
Sophomore center Sarah Gonsalves led Conant with 15.
