New Trier 53, Maine South 38
The New Trier girls basketball team defeated Maine South 53-38 in Winnetka on Thursday night. The Trevians improved to 9-0 overall and 3-0 in the CSL South with the victory.
The Trevians led 13-12 at the end of the first quarter, but they began the second quarter with 16 consecutive points. They increased their defensive intensity during the second quarter, speeding up the game and forcing turnovers en route to a 31-17 lead at the half.
New Trier sophomore center Jeannie Boehm left her imprint on the game at both ends of the court. She and the Trevians' defense limited the Hawks (6-4, 1-2 CSL South) to very few open shots in the paint. Boehm blocked four shots and hauled in a game-high 10 rebounds against Maine South. She also added a game-high 16 points.
BY THE NUMBERS
New Trier went 13-for-14 from the free throw line. Its lone miss came with 55.1 seconds remaining in the game. Meanwhile, the Hawks were 8-for-16 from the charity stripe.
“We came together as a team in the second quarter. We walked into the game, and I don't think we were ready for Maine South. We had just come off of (a 73-64 win over) Evanston, and we were feeling confident. We didn't have the energy we had for Evanston, and we need that to be successful, so I think the difference between the first and second quarter was definitely the energy.” — Boehm
