North Dallas’ Lady Bulldogs kept the ball rolling with a 54-28 win over W.T. White on Monday at W.T. White.
Then on Tuesday, North Dallas (5-3) extended its win streak to four, with its biggest win of the season in a 75-36 victory at Fort Worth Polytechnic.
In Monday’s win over White, Ashley Poole hit a 3-pointer to open the game, then W.T. White tied the score on a 3-point play, but after that, it was the Lady Bulldogs’ show.
Jakolby Flemings led the Lady Bulldogs with 21 points and Poole had 10 points. Teia Leroy had 9 points and 16 rebounds. SaNiya Lampkin had 8 points and 17 rebounds.
The Lady Bulldogs’ pressure defense and quickness was too much for the under-sized Lady Longhorns. North Dallas led 21-5 after the first quarter and 31-10 at halftime. ND led 41-19 after three quarters.
“We still have areas for improvements,” Girls coach Erik Grayson said. “They’re working hard every time they line up. The main thing I keep preaching is that their basketball IQ has to continue to get better. But we’re working. One-stop shop is playoffs.
Flemings, Lampkin and Poole are all sophomores, which gives Grayson high hopes for the future.
“We have sophomores running the team, so we still have a little inexperience,” Grayson said. “Still, the team can get better.
“I’m excited about the progress. I’m excited to see where it’s going to go. We’re only two years into the right direction. Give me one more year, we’ll be on board.”
In Tuesday’s win, Poole scored 31 points, including 7 of 16 3-pointers, along with 5 rebounds and 4 steals. Flemings had 25 points and 7 steals. Leroy had 8 points and 11 rebounds.
The Lady Bulldogs led 25-2 after the first quarter and 47-11 at halftime.
