Girls basketball: Breslin, Pinkerton know February schedule will be challenging

(Continued)

Small but aggressive

Georgetown Marisa Agganis is only 5-5, but she is aggressive.

Agganis, who entered yesterday averaging 13.5 ppg, posted 15 points and eight rebounds last Friday against Newburyport.

“She boxes out great, she takes the ball to the hoop great and is a fantastic foul shooter,” Georgetown coach Dave Tucker said. “Her intensity is unbelievable.”

King of the court

Londonderry posted a big 65-48 win over previously unbeaten Nashua North on Friday thanks for 18 first-half points from Jaime King and a 3-point barrage from Katherine Dzenis (4), King (3) and Jenna Conroy (3).

“What they tried to do was take (Aliza) Simpson out of the game, and I think that’s one of the reasons you see three other kids with three or more 3s,” Londonderry coach John Fagula said. (Simpson) was kicking it (to them).”

Player of the Week

Angelice Gonzalez had her best game in an Andover uniform on Friday, netting 18 points to lead the Golden Warriors to a 49-37 upset over rival Central Catholic.

Pinkerton (13-1), the No. 1 team in our Eagle-Tribune Fab 5, plays Londonderry (9-2), the No. 4 team, at 6 p.m. Friday at Pinkerton.

The game features two returning Eagle-Tribune All-Stars in Pinkerton’s Sam Breslin and Londonderry’s Aliza Simpson.
