St. Pius junior Asia Durr had nine points and five steals in the Lady Golden Lions’ win against Towers last week.
Without starters Jasmine Carter and Hannah Jones, the St. Pius Lady Golden Lions still didn’t have any problems with Towers.

Adriana Daves scored 10 points, Asia Durr added nine and Miah Allen finished with eight as the Lady Lions netted the first 21 points of the game en route to a 47-7 road victory over the Lady Titans last Friday.

Even though the Lady Lions defeated Towers by a large margin for the third straight time, they owned just a 9-0 start after the first quarter and a 21-2 advantage at the break.

“We played well enough to win,” St. Pius girls’ basketball coach Kyle Snipes said. “I wasn’t really pleased with our effort in the first half. I thought we didn’t play to the standard that we set for ourselves.

“I was a little disappointed about that but I thought we played better in the second half,” Snipes said. “We picked things up defensively and got some stops when we needed them.”

In the third quarter, the Lady Lions outscored their opponents 15-1 and continued to cruise in a shortened fourth quarter due to mercy rules. Durr and Leah Middleton both finished with five steals.

“Asia leads us in about every statistical category but we are pleased with what we get from her,” Snipes said.

“I think we are getting there,” Durr said. “There is still more work that needs to be put in. We’ve improved a little but still have more work to do.”

As far as this contest, Jones was sick but Carter’s return is yet to be determined.

“Jasmine will be out for a little bit,” Snipes said of the Georgia signee. “I’m not quite sure how long yet. We will just take it a game at a time.”

The Lady Lions continued to roll on Saturday, posting a 65-34 road win against Riverwood. They will play Cross Keys today at home.
