Rebels cruise to victory over MHS

The 2019 Chilton County Basketball Tournament got off to a roaring start for the Thorsby girls basketball squad after a 43-13 victory against Maplesville in the opening round Dec. 16.

“It felt great, because this is my third year playing in the tournament and the first time we’ve been able to advance past the first round,” Thorsby guard Lindsey Wood said. “Moving on is a pretty cool thing.”

Thorsby jumped out to an early lead en route to the 30-point triumph. The Rebels led 27-3 at the halftime break.

The Red Devils were led by Shaveon Dunlap’s eight points.

Unfortunately for Maplesville, Dunlap was the only offense it could muster throughout the night.

The Rebels consistently looked to push the pace and the guards were responsible for grabbing offensive rebounds and surveying the court for quick transition buckets.

“We have a big group of leaders on the team,” Wood said. “There isn’t just one person that sticks out. We all want to score, but we first look to pass the ball.”

The past two seasons Wood’s father Kris has also been her head coach.

According to Wood, it is a special dynamic that creates some interesting conversations at the dinner table.

“Basketball never stops,” Wood said. “It’s not just at practice and games, but continues at the house. It’s been fun, and he makes me work hard and earn my spot.”
