Alton Marquette beat Waterloo 57-21 in the Tip Off Classic consolation game in Columbia. Coach Lee Greens Explorer team jumped out early and never let up to claim 5th place.

  • The Explorers have gone young and it seems to be working so far. Coach Green is starting 3 freshman and a sophomore. Payton Connors a senior and lone returning starter handles the other spot. The 3 freshman led the team in scoring for the game. Kamryn Fandrey had 12 points, Adrenna Snipes and Abby Williams each had 9.
  • Aubrey Hubbard had been lights out the first two games for Waterloo. The junior transfer made 5 and 6 shots from 3 in the first two games. Both games Waterloo faced a zone and she was able to get open shots. Against the Alton Marquette man to man she could not find those looks. Aubrey ended up with 2 points for the game. In the first two games Waterloo made 14 shots from the 3 and in this game they were held to 1. This was a big key to the victory.
  • Alton Marquette employs a full court pressing defense that is a key part of what they do as a team. This press was very effective
