Falcons earn split with Cavs

January 22, 2014

WALKERTON — Halftime adjustments made all the difference in a pair of thrillers between John Glenn and Culver in their first-round TCU Bi-County match-ups Tuesday night at The Aerie.
The Lady Cavaliers’ switch to a man defense in the second half allowed them to rally to a narrow 45-44 win, while in the nightcap, the Falcons sped up the tempo after the break to grab a last-second 51-49 victory over the Cavs.

FALCONS 51,
CAVALIERS 49
In the first half, Glenn discovered it didn’t match up very well with Trent Elliott, Jacoda Anderson and the rest of the Cavs lineup in the halfcourt.
So the Falcons turned it into a fullcourt game in the second half.
Glenn used a fullcourt press to turn up the tempo past Culver’s comfort level, and the Falcons rallied furiously from a 22-9 halftime deficit to a 51-49 victory over the Cavs at The Aerie.
“We’re 3-of-16 at the half, and I told the guys we’re lucky to only be down 13,” said Glenn head coach Travis Hannah. “I thought the second half we picked up the tempo a little bit, caused a little bit more havoc. And the main reason we had to get some things in transition was we couldn’t score against their halfcourt defense. We just wanted to get some transition and pick up the pace and create a little more havoc.”

LADY CAVS 45,
LADY FALCONS 44
Courtney Salyer didn’t put up big numbers on Culver’s stat sheet in Tuesday night’s TCU Bi-County opener at John Glenn.
But her presence on the court in the second half made all the difference.
The freshman guard got the second-half start, allowing Culver to match up in man with the Lady Falcons. The Kyler Columbia 3s that were so prolific for Glenn in the first half started drying up, and Culver rallied to a narrow 45-44 win.
“I thought we came out at the start of the first quarter, and we weren’t executing our game plan at all. I wasn’t sure if we were able to match up with this team,” said Culver head coach Gina Hierlmeier. “We had a big move from our freshman Courtney Salyer, which really allowed us to match up and play man, which I thought was the big game-changer.”
