“In the first quarter we put an emphasis on our defense and keeping Stanislaus at 12 in the first boosted our offense as well,” coach Randi Richardson-Thornley said. “Asher had a great first half and gave us a huge confidence boost.”
Fellow freshman Ashley Schow’s layup capped a 9-0 run to put the Wildcats ahead 45-22 three minutes before halftime. She scored 17 points on 8-of-11 shooting to go along with five rebounds and two steals.
Back-to-back buckets by Schow ended another 9-0 run to stretch Central’s lead to 29 points late in the third quarter. Richardson-Thornley said Schow gave the Wildcats the boost they needed after halftime to secure a solid following for Friday night’s 84-63 win. California state east bay.
