Stevenson 62, Warren 50

THE SKINNY

After a week off from NSC Lake play, the host Patriots and Blue Devils resumed conference action Thursday night. It took almost four minutes for Stevenson to score, but once the Patriots did, they didn’t stop, scoring 44 total points in the second and third quarters. Stevenson (15-6, 7-1) won for the ninth time in 10 games.

TURNING POINT

Warren (6-16, 2-7) led 10-9 after the first quarter. But a three-minute stretch to start the second quarter saw Stevenson go on a 10-0 run and take a 19-10 lead. The Blue Devils went almost seven minutes without scoring in the first half. Stevenson junior Sophia Way’s buzzer beater to end the half made it 33-12, a deficit too great for Warren to overcome.

THE STAR

Way. The Patriots’ shooting guard shot 5-of-6 from three-point range, finishing with a game-high 21 points. Junior forward Taylor Buford added 13 points for Stevenson. “We were excited for the game but once we calmed down, we started making better decisions on shot selection,” Way said.

BY THE NUMBERS

Stevenson rested four of its starters the entire fourth quarter.

QUOTABLE

“I think we missed our first six shots then we made six in a row. It became pretty contagious. I’ve said this is the best-shooting team I’ve had since I’ve been here. Early on, we made the game interesting but once we got the hot hand, we made a nice run.” — Patriots coach Tom Dineen
