Dibrell’s Lady Wildcats continued their unbeaten streak as they played host to the Irving College Lady Wildcats on Monday night, securing a 48-24 victory.
“We’ve got one more to go to be undefeated on the season,” said Dibrell coach Marc Pyburn. “We came out to play hard and I couldn’t be more proud of this team.”
Dibrell did an outstanding job distributing the basketball as seven players posted points for the win. Leading the offense for the Lady Wildcats was Rhealee Johnson with 17 points to her credit, followed by Sadie Simmons who also posted double digits with 11.
Dibrell headed into the break with a 21-8 lead the Lady Wildcats wouldn’t relinquish as they pressed hard on defense and converged on Irving College’s run for the paint all game leaving the outside shot to the Lady Tigers.
Irving College’s Breezy Wanamaker hit for three treys while Mia Hobbs made two 3-pointers, but it wasn’t enough to keep up with Dibrell. Wanamaker and Hobbs led the Lady Tigers scoring drive with 9 points each.
Dibrell had the advantage on the foul line, converting 6-of-10 for 60 percent, while the Lady Tigers were 3-of-8 for 38 percent.
Also scoring for Dibrell were Kylie Young with 8 points, Rachel Bell 5, JuJu Pyburn 4, Aniston Wood 2 and Bailey Glenn was good for 1 point.
Hitting more hoops for Irving College were Ella Bond, Kristen Turner and Braelee Curtis, each with 2 points.
Monday was White Out Night as well for Dibrell, and they had the floor covered in tissue at the start of the boys game.
If Dibrell, which played host to Centertown on Tuesday night, hung on for a win it would make a perfect season for the Lady Wildcats. Results were not available at press time.
The 7-8 grade postseason tournament begins at Warren County High School on Monday, Jan. 30.
