“It’s an unreal feeling that still hasn’t really hit me yet,” Timothy said of setting a new school record for 3-pointers in a game. “Never did I think I would set a record for Wickliffe. It’s a very special moment for me. My teammates made it so much more exciting and knowing they have faith in me is a good feeling.”
Timothy, whose previous best was three 3s in a single game, knew she found her shooting rhythm after draining her third 3 against the Heralds.
“I knew I was hot in shooting the ball,” she said. “I knew if I wanted to hit more shots I had to find the open spots on the floor to maximize my opportunities.”
Wickliffe led 16-9 after the first quarter and 31-13 at halftime.
The Blue Devils outscored the Heralds in the third quarter, 20-10, and then closed out the win with a 9-7 fourth quarter.
