North Andover too much for Methuen

(Continued)

“I just ran the floor,” Chittick said. “It’s what I do best.”

Lumb added: “Us three guards know how to read each other. We look at each other in the eyes. And when we make eye contact we know to go backdoor. When I get the rebound, they break and we get fastbreaks. That’s how we’re going to not be stopped.”

Chittick nets 10

Lumb had a typically fine game with 20 points. Chittick, a sophomore guard, showed she can score, too. She finished with 10 points, all in the second half.

“She had just an outstanding freshman season,” Breen said about Chittick. “She was a sixth player last year and this year she starts. It’s a nice luxury to have because I don’t have to have Pam Coufos guard the point guard. So I think our defense can be sort of in waves because Pam is one of the best and Leah just never gets tired. Her tenacity is just amazing. She’s a great on-the-ball defender.”
