Pressure defense and transition were in full swing for the Seymour girls basketball team early in Friday’s Bedford North Lawrence Tournament game against Irvington Prep Academy.
Eight of their first 11 points were off of turnovers, and that trend continued in building a 24-2 lead through one quarter. The Owls led 47-8 at halftime and coasted to a 78-22 victory.
“Early on, we needed to get some energy,” Owls coach Jason Longmeier said. “We had to come out and try to get something going early, and that’s what our focus has been the last couple of weeks anyway, was a little more pressure, a little bit better transition. Early on, we did that.
“We’ve spent a lot of time in the zone the last couple weeks, and (today), you’re going to see us mostly in zone both games,” he said. “I think there are some running opportunities for us, also. That’s got to be a big part of what we do.”
