The Logan Middle School girls’ basketball team stayed undefeated on the season as the Lady Wolves cruised to a 42-20 win at home over Guyan Valley on Wednesday night at the LMS gym.
Tomi Nelson led the Wolves with 14 points, six rebounds and two blocked shots.
Lexi Hines added 10 points, seven rebounds, three assists and two blocked shots for LMS.
“Lexi had an off night shooting, but she made up for it in hustle and solid rebounding,” Logan Middle School coach Carol Workman said. “She gets down on herself quickly which is something that her and I discussed. She is one of our captains and we need her to stay positive if we hope to have a shot to win a conference title. Tomi played another solid game all around. She gives us size and mobility.”
Sydney Roberts chipped in eight points, two steals and one assist for Logan.
“She played under control tonight and did some good things for us out front,” Workman said. “Her shot from the left corner in the third quarter was a big time basket.”
Jamyaa Knox tallied six points, two assists and a team high eight steals for the Lady Wolves.
“She has exceptional foot speed. She just has to continue to work on her shooting,” Workman said. “Once that happens then she will score 10 or more points per game.”
Steph Curry and Jazmyne Early both contributed two points and seven rebounds. Curry added four steals and a blocked shot, while Early added a steal and a blocked shot.
“Steph is tough-nosed and gets after it,” Coach Workman said. “Jaz is a great weapon underneath the basket and is working on her touch shooting.”
Jaden Oney added two rebounds for Logan.
“Oney’s shot is coming around. Soon her name will start popping up in the scoring column,” Workman said.
In JV action, LMS posted a 30-17 victory over Guyan Valley.
Jazmyne Early led the way with 10 points and three rebounds.
Ally Sipple added four points, three assists and two steals.
“Ally is doing a good job leading our team right now. She handles and distributes the ball well and doesn’t turn it over much,” Logan JV coach Hazel Mollet said.
Chelsea Napier had five points, two rebounds, two assists and two steals.
“Chelsea has the ability to score as many points as she wants, if she will just slow down and think about what she needs to do,” Mollet said.
Lara Elkins added four points and three rebounds.
“Lara played well tonight — very physical underneath,” Mollet said.
Alexis Perry added three points, three assists, two rebounds and one steal.
“Alexis hustles and gives it 100 percent all of the time. One day her hustle and determination will turn into points,” Mollet said.
Steph Eplin added two points, three rebounds and two steals.
“Steph does a nice job breaking the press and finding the open person,” Coach Mollet said.
Logan’s Britney Welch had two steals, while Jaden Oney had a rebound and a steal.
“Both girls played strong defensively,” Mollet said.
C.C. Knox added two points.
“I’m glad she made her first points of the year, hopefully that will encourage her to work harder to get better,” Mollet said.
LMS returns to action Friday at 1 p.m. in varsity action as they host Man Middle, while the JV follows. The game will be played in front of the student body.
