The Lady Wolves hit the ground running as they out scrapped a very talented Lady Panther Parkview team this past Saturday afternoon during the Wesleyan Showcase. Many Georgia fans were home watching the UGA Bulldogs scrap and claw for a SEC title, but the ones that came to watch basketball this day got a show as the Lady Wolves showed what playing with heart and hustle will do for an undersized basketball team. Bodies were hitting the floor and many Lady Wolves had floor burns as they ran and hunted for a full 32 minutes on this day. This was a day that displayed the relentless defense and aggressive offense the Lady Wolves thrive on in their version of basketball in the fast lane. Sometimes it was not pretty, but the effects still were shown as the ladies of Buford posted another win of 54- 46, to keep their season perfect with a record of 5-0. The Lady Wolves had an 18 point lead with three minutes left in the game, but some experience mistakes gave the Lady Panthers life and the Lady Wolves some valuable lessons for end of the games situations. The win gave this team another quality win over another 7A opponent and more confidence for games to come in the future.
Tate Walters lead all scorers with 18 points followed by another great effort by Preston Reid with 12 points. Many other Lady Wolves contributed in the win with points and plays.
