Megan Hussey couldn’t remember the last time she hit a 3-pointer in a game. It was even tougher for the Fenwick senior to remember her last game with two 3-pointers.
The reserve guard rarely sees the floor for the Friars, but she took advantage of her limited opportunity to connect on back-to-back 3-pointers in Fenwick’s 66-30 victory over No. 21-seeded Curie Monday night in the Class 4A Reavis Regional quarterfinal.
“It’s nice to be able to get [out] there, especially at point guard,” Hussey said. “I don’t usually get to play point guard. I hit those two shots and the girls seemed to pick it up.”
The result of the game was hardly in doubt when Hussey’s baskets gave the Friars (12-17) a 62-26 lead midway through the fourth quarter.
Hussey, a co-captain with the Creighton-bound senior Jade Owens, has learned to contribute despite her limited playing time.
“It was nice. It was fun. I didn’t think either one was going in,” Hussey said. “I don’t usually take a lot of shots in a game.”
Owens led Fenwick with 15 points and junior Jennifer Mackowiak added 11.
No. 12-seeded Fenwick will play fifth-seeded Proviso East in the regional semifinal at 8 p.m. Tuesday.
After Shamiah Oliver (team-high 10 points, six rebounds) scored the game’s opening basket for Curie (11-18), Fenwick scored the next 15 points. The Friars scored 21 consecutive points midway through the game to open a 42-11 bulge.
