season. which is a lot better than hug. the hawks have won just once... and came in with an eight-game losing streak would zonathan williams be the difference maker? he starts off with the nice assist to number 4 gerald roscom... for the three but you can t leave williams alone as he steps back and drains a three but reed has the answer in lincoln turner... in the air and makes the basket. turner has outside range as well... hitting a three at the top of the circle. reed's jeremy ramos is no slouch ethier... as he drives and makes the nice layup. but it was too much turner... as reed wins 66-53 to the girls game we go... reed girls can play defense as number 34
serene townsell- williams makes the nice steal... you want to see a star in the making??? that would be vanessa hernanadez.... draining
and drains the three again... hernanadez would finish as their leading scorer in the hug trying to get something going ... but reed's defense comes up again... nice pass
