Selma girls coast to win

ORRVILLE — With three games under their belts this season, the poised Selma girls had little trouble handling Keith in a 76-55 victory.

“We came out with a lot of intensity tonight,” said Selma coach Anthony Harris. “Our first group did a tremendous job for us.”

The Lady Saints lit the scoreboard up for 22 first-quarter points, while the turnover-plagued Bears netted nine.

Selma scored 18 unanawered points from the 2:48 mark of the first quarter to the five-minute mark of the second quarter to go up by 20.

The trio of Ashley Grimes, Kamesha Strong and Keisha Moore netted 36 of Selma’s 43 first-half points to build a 43-22 half time lead.

The Saints led by as much as 25 points in the third quarter to all but put the game away.

Grimes scored a game-high 20 points. Strong chipped in 17, and Moore finished with 14 points.

Anjelica Dukes scored 18 points for the Lady Bears, and Jasmine Thomas contributed 10.
