“We like to come out and play aggressive defense which will get us going if we cause turnovers,” Wells said. “We’re not going to back down. We’re going to fight out there. This was a good win for us and we’re excited for regionals, especially after this win.”
The Rockets had little difficulty beating St. Charles North’s pressure. Wells was the key to that as she often sliced through the defense. When she wasn’t attacking the basket, she was finding her teammates or getting comfortable behind the 3-point arc where she connected three times in the first half.
“I just came out and I kind of thought to myself that if I’m open then I have to shoot it,” she said. “I can’t rely too much on the drives so if I get open looks I’m going to take the shots.”
