Three-point goals – Westminster: 4 (Williamson 2, Fuller, Curry). Bulloch Academy 1 (Williford).

Westminster’s Lady Wildcats used a 17-6 fourth quarter spurt to make up a 9-point halftime deficit and avenge its only loss of the season with a 36-33 decision over Bulloch Academy. The win, which came on the last day of final exams for Westminster’s students, not only provided a measure of payback, but it also contained a hint of symmetry in the way each game’s outcome between the two teams has been reached, as explained post game by Westminster’s head coach Greg Wilson after we asked him what led to his team’s comeback win.

“History helped,” Wilson started. “We were up 30-14 on them at their place 2 weeks ago only to have 2 posts go down to injuries in the third quarter and Bulloch went on a 27-3 run to beat us by 8. Our girls have been stewing over that loss – our only one of the pre-Christmas portion of our schedule – for the past 2 weeks.”

Kaleigh Bakeman, who led Westminster with 14 points, scored 6in the decisive fourth quarter. So did Cammi Williamson, who drew special mention from Wilson for her clutch shooting (Williamson made 2 threes in the fourth), as did Wellsley Fuller and Rania Curry.

“I thought point guard Rania Curry (7 points) had a solid floor game and made some great decisions with the ball in her hands down the stretch,” said Wilson. “She does a great job of keeping her teammates involved and getting everyone touches.” 

“I also thought it was great to see our 2 main perimeter shooters – Cammi Williamson and Wellsley Fuller – both hit big threes as we made our run in the fourth quarter,” Wilson continued. “The game is always easier & more fun when you make shots, right? Well, they made theirs in the second half and it keyed our run for sure. I thought our body language was impeccable in the second half & that is often an indication of how you will play.”

Westminster will break for the holidays with a 6-1 record.

“Sophomore Malik Ferguson picked up a loose ball in the middle of the paint with one second remaining, and right before the fourth quarter buzzer sounded, he released a shot that found its mark to give Grovetown 61-60 win over Evans Friday, a result that threw the top spot in the class 6A, region 5 standings into a three way tie between Grovetown, Evans and Heritage to mark the beginning of the stretch run for the league’s regular season championship. Ferguson’s shot came at the end of a full court dash by Grovetown after head coach Darren Douglas was able to draw up a play during a timeout that was meant to result in a bucket in only six seconds. The play was designed for senior Zach Bell, who eventually fumbled the ball after spinning between defenders at the end of a drive that began near half court after he gathered the ball from freshman Derrion Reid.”

That was Chad Cook’s rundown of the instant classic that these two teams played two weeks ago. That win by Grovetown sets up a must-win scenario for Evans as they look to maintain their footing in the race for a region championship.

Be sure to get your ? ready early because if tonight’s game is as exciting as the last one, you just might forget those jokers altogether!

Streams will be posted here. Tip-off times are as follows:
Girls – 6:30 PM
Boys – 8:00 PM
