Concordia dominates Fisk in win

Concordia finished January on a good note with an 87-40 win over Fisk on Saturday.

The Hornets were dominant over a Bulldog team that played without two starters, and is fighting back after the Fisk athletic program was disbanded two years ago.

“I give Fisk a lot of credit for being undersized and undermanned,” said Concordia coach Steven Washington. “We’ve come together. We had a difficult start, but we’re gelling now.”

The Hornets used consistent shooting and smothering defense to run out to an 11-0 lead in the game’s first three minutes. The Bulldogs had trouble finding looks, and at the same time, couldn’t defend Concordia shooters.

Leading 15-6, two Santana Seay layups and a Shanice Price 3-pointer sparked a 15-0 Concordia run to put the Hornets ahead 28-6 at the 10:39 mark of the first half.

“We made unneeded turnovers and missed layups,” said Fisk coach Wendy Majors. “We’re trying to reestablish the program. From what we have done this year, we’ve made progress.”

After taking a 46-19 lead into the intermission, Concordia (6-7) picked up where it left off in the second half. The Hornets opened the period with another 15-0 run, capped by a Price 3-point play to increase their advantage to 61-19.

Five Hornets finished in double figures, with Tiffany Hill leading the way with 16 points. Seay added 15, Price finished with 12, Shacora Preyer scored 11 and De’Ira Price chipped in 10.

Angel Thompson led the Bulldogs (1-8) with 14 points.
