Olathe Northwest ladies basketball team is experiencing some changes not only in their lineup but also in their overall style of play.
The ladies went 1-2 on their three-day tournament that took place at Winnetonka High School. This past Saturday the lady Ravens took on Ray Pec in the Winnetonka tournament. The ladies took a tumble in the first game with 27 turnovers against Smithville and also lost on Saturday. Nonetheless, the Ravens finished off Ray Pec High School in a marquee 64-49 victory. The Ravens finally ended their scoreless streak in the 1st quarter by scoring 14 points.
“It was a rough start but we put it together,” said Junior Shaleia Jamision.
Jamision had 27 points and shot 57% from the field. Senior Shea Shipman had double-double with 17 points and 11 rebounds. The Ravens cut down their turnovers from the first game and they only had 15 turnovers against Ray Pec. As a team the Ravens shot 39% and 41% behind the arc.
Rocky would be the best way to label this start for the Lady Ravens, but they want to avoid the typical roller coaster season. With big shoes to fill from losing last year’s seniors Kelsey Brooks, Jayla Jackson, and Michaela Crall, this year’s squad is trying to rise on their roller coaster and never come down.
The Lady Ravens next game is Friday at home against the Blue Valley Tigers.
