Allasha Dudley got the stats at halftime Tuesday and didn’t like what she saw.

The Anniston sophomore shooter’s line for the half from the 3-point arc was an uncharacteristic 1-for-8, and that one came sometime in the second quarter. She knew she had to do better.

So, setting the semi-slump aside, she came out firing in the third quarter and nailed five from behind the arc in the quarter extended an already safe lead over White Plains to a 63-24 victory.

Dudley hit six 3s in the first quarter of her last game against Guntersville, but had only two total field goals at halftime.

“Halftime I was 1-for-8, so when I came back I just had in my mind I’ve got to do better because I know that percentage is not good for me,” Dudley said.

Dudley finished with 24 points. Eleven different players scored for Anniston in the game.

While Dudley’s second-half shooting was impressive, it wasn’t her main focus in the game. With head coach Eddie Bullock defense is Job One and on this night his team held White Plains to single digits in every quarter.

“Tonight we just tried to focus on defense, that’s our main thing,” Dudley said. “Focus on help side, because we’ve been having trouble with help side, so coach has been talking with us about playing help side and hedging and doing all that stuff so we can be more effective in the end.”
