GIRLS BASKETBALL:Teaneck's late surge ends in an overtime win at River Dell
ORADELL – Teaneck turned up the defensive pressure to open the fourth quarter to spark a 6-0 run that helped it overcome a 10-point third-quarter deficit and send the opening-round, BCWCA Tournament game into overtime. The Highwaywomen then outscored River Dell, 11-6, in the extra session to come away with a 48-43 victory on Saturday night in Oradell. “With Teaneck basketball we think defense turns into offense,” said senior point guard Cedeja James.” If we play defense our offense is there. That’s how we won the game.” It did not start off well for the Highwaywomen, however. Although it seemed like they were pulling down every rebound early on, they missed shots and turned the ball over a bunch of times. As a result they trailed, 6-5, at the end of the first quarter. “The past couple of games the first and second quarters have not been where they should have been,” said Teaneck head coach Trinette Carruthers.” We came out flat. In the last two or three losses we had to play catch up in the second half. That’s something we have to fix in the next couple of practices to get ready for next week.” Senior Caton Henderson completed a 3-point play to boost the Hawks lead to 9-5, but Teaneck junior defensive specialist Jess Bernard hit a shot and James scored from in close to tie the game at 9.
