Fast start is not quite enough for N-P girls

Lead Summary

Maybe there are two lessons to be learned in Nashua-Plainfield’s girls basketball loss to West Fork last week.  First, one quarter does not make a game.  Second, though, is that the Huskies have the ability to play with even elite teams like the Warhawks, who are 8-2 overall and have suffered just one loss in eight Top of Iowa Conference East Division outings.  Early on, the Huskies stayed right with West Fork and trailed just 21-17 after the first quarter.  “It was definitely one of the best quarters we've had this year,” said Nashua-Plainfield coach Josh Smith. “I think one of the things that set this quarter apart from other good ones we've had is that we weren't manufacturing offense through our press in this quarter. ... We were getting it inside and our outside shots were falling.   It's the best our halfcourt offense has looked all year.” For the full story, please see the Jan. 12 Reporter.
