Montini doesn't play like it's nickname. A bronco is a 'wild' or 'half-tamed' horse but these Broncos are fully equipped to make another Redbird Arena run.

That was evident after the Broncos withstood Normal Community's biggest blow early on en route to a 62-31 rout over the Lady Iron. This was the second game of a home-and-home after the Broncos rallied late to beat Normal Community in Lombard last season.

Here are five takeaways from Saturday's game, which was littered with college prospects.

1. Montini dissects the zone

From the opening tip to the closing horn, the Broncos moved the ball with ease and passed up good shots for great shots. Their ball movement netted 19 assists on 24 baskets. The Broncos were 24-for-48 from the floor and 13-for-27 from 3-point range.

Tatiana Thomas (2022) had good size at 5-foot-11 to work the free throw line in the middle of the zone. She dished out five assists, four of which came in the first half. The perimeter passing across the court was solid as well. Sophie Sullivan (2022) and Zoe Zacker (2019) accounted for eight assists in the game, five were in the second quarter.
