Whittier dictates it terms

Cats club Georgetown, advance to quarters

(Continued)

After Sanchez provided the foundation, the youngsters showed off their talents in the second half. With Andrea Terranova scoring nine of her team-high 18 points, Whittier turned a seven-point halftime lead into 12 points late in the third quarter. Michaela Martin contributed half of her 16 points and Samnell Vonleh all eight of hers after intermission. The Wildcats nailed 12 of their first 17 second-half, field-goal attempts.

Defense prevented any thoughts Georgetown (7-15) had of mounting a comeback as the the Wildcats held the Royals to 1-of-19 shooting in the fourth while forcing seven turnovers. A couple nights after Kristin Hogan and Marisa Agganis combined for 39 points in a preliminary-round victory over Matignon, the Royal tandem managed only 25 (3 in the fourth) against a rotating Wildcat defense.

“Whittier was hitting everything,” Georgetown coach Dave Tucker said. “Their (pace) wears me out. They are definitely quick. It’s a tough way for some of our seniors to go out, but they have nothing to be ashamed of.”
