Three players scored in double figures to lead Richmond Heights to a 53-48 win at Wickliffe in a Chagrin Valley Conference Valley Division win on Monday.
Tamia Farris led the Spartans with 19 points while Imani Hendon added 16 and LaRissa Williams contributed with 10. Josie Gates pitched in with six points and Aniyah Smith scored two in the win.
“It was a good win and an overall good team effort,” Richmond Heights coach Evonne Glover said. “The girls took their time and executed well on both ends of the floor.”
Sticking to the game plan helped the Spartans maintain a balanced offensive effort.
“We shared the ball getting good touches from everybody resulting in LaRissa Williams, Imani Hendon and Tamia Farris all being in double figures,” Glover said. “We made good decisions on the shots we took, remained calm and got settled into a good rhythm.”
Farris was dominant under the hoop, which led to several easy scoring chances.
“Tamia was very aggressive on the boards putting herself in position to get some put backs and the team did well getting her the ball,” Glover said. “We had solid contributions from everyone who played. Josephine Gates also had double digits in rebounding and Aniyah Smith gave great energy on the court.”
Ayanna Chenevert and Tracy Tanner provided a spark for the Spartans on both ends of the court.
“They each made significant plays on the boards, gave assists and had a couple of steals,” Glover said. “A job well done by all.”
