Oaker girls can't handle La Salle's press

January 7, 2011

COVENTRY — The scoreboard with 11 minutes, 33 seconds left in Friday’s game showed the improvement the Coventry girls basketball team has made since the beginning of December.
Even though the Oakers had been heavily outplayed by visiting La Salle, they were still only down six points with a chance to cut the deficit even further.
La Salle went on to run away with the Division I-South contest 53-37 thanks to their full-court, man-to-man defense, but the Oakers showed with some offensive refinement they could be a team that competes for a playoff spot in a very tough division.

Friday’s game may have finished just the first third of the season, but for coach Tom Campbell and the Oakers, Friday’s game was nearly a must-win after dissipating losses to La Salle and Smithfield where the Oakers had a lead in the second half and blew it.
