If they wanted to run the floor and play fast, they could, and if they wanted to slow the pace of the game, they did just that. Trimble had great ball movement, swinging the rock all over the court and sharing the love with all team members.
The difference in this game was tempo, as stated before Trimble controlled the tempo for the entire game, and they did not take their foot off the gas until the final buzzer sounded.
Trimble looks to keep rolling this Thursday as they travel to Stewart, Ohio to take on the Federal Hocking Lady Lancers and pick up their 12th win of the season. They need to keep the momentum on their side to keep pushing through this tough TVC-Hocking schedule.
