One of the regular contributors, junior Kia Wilson, was able to help the team overcome a slow start and eventually finish out a close game against Seaman. Wilson contributed 42 percent of the team total points. Despite the fact that Wilson was the one who got the statistics, it wasn’t done alone.

“I think our teamwork was huge,” Wilson said. “We had some really great passes that made a huge impact. I think that is great especially for us because that is something we have been putting emphasis on.”

Wilson has played basketball throughout her entire high school career and has no plans to stop anytime soon.

“I love basketball and I don’t know what I would do without it,” Wilson said. “The best part of basketball is definitely my team.”
