No contest: Monessen rips Greater Works Academy

| Tuesday, Dec. 11, 2001

MONESSEN - The Monessen Lady Greyhounds opened the game with a 20-0 run and never looked back against the Greater Works Academy as they rolled to an easy 64-13 win.

"It is always good to get your first section win out of the way," said Lady Hounds coach, Major Corley. "We got off to a fast start, and that is exactly how we like to play."

The Lady Hounds (4-0, 1-0) led 20-1 after one quarter.

"The early lead allowed us to put in our reserves so they could get some good playing time," said Corley. "The more our reserves play, the better our depth will be come playoff time."

The Lady Hounds outscored Greater Works (1-3, 0-1) 14-2 to take a 34-3 halftime lead.

"Our subs might have played more than the starters," said Corley. "That will help us down the road."

Cassandra Tyree scored five of her game-high 15 points in the third quarter as the Lady Hounds extended their lead to 54-13 heading into the fourth quarter. Tyree also added 10 rebounds for the winners.

"Cassandra played a good all-around game," said Corley. "She likes getting physical inside."

The Lady Hounds shut out Greater Works 10-0 in the fourth quarter.

Charel Allen (14) and Nychole Whitlock (12) also hit double figures for the winners. Alicia Stein added seven points for the winners off of the bench.

"Charel passed more to get her teammates into the game," said Corley. Nycole gets the tempo going for us, and Alicia gave us seven points off of the bench. That is important."

Allen also added eight rebounds, six assists and six steals for the Lady Hounds. Whitlock had seven steals and five assists for the win-ners.

Amber Rogers led Greater Works with six points.
