- The Galaxy Girls
Basketball Tournament tipped off last week and brought out some of the best
talent in girls basketball including Harlan, Bloom Township, Bishop
McNamara, Lincoln-Way North, Rich South, Shepard, Thornwood, and returning
champion, Hillcrest Hawks.
The event has become a big part of girls
basketball program, and all of the players and parents are involved in
making the classic a reality every year. It's a nice tournament to obtain an
early measuring stick of your teams abilities, pro's or cons, against
competition you normally wouldn't see until post-season.
The championship game put Hillcrest up
against Bishop McNamara, where the Lady Hawks went on to win 64-46. On
this night big things came from a fast, sturdy package - Hillcrest's
5'2" sophomore Samirah Ali. She finished the game with 21 points, six
assists and four steals. Shannise Heady added 18 points, and DePaul
recruit, Uniquah Hampton 9 points.
Hillcrest was up by only 3 points until
late in the third quarter when they went on a 10 point run and opened
the game for a clear victory.
"In the second half, Samirah brought us out and made us look good," said
team captain, Ms. Hampton. "She's fun. I don't have to worry about anything
when she goes to the hole. I can just chill at halfcourt. I know she's going
to make it. I've got confidence in her."
Ironic part of all of this is Ali is a transfer student from the host school
It's starting to look like the Lady Hawk's
opening night loss to Homewood-Flossmoor is beginning to fade as the team
gets their legs underneath them.
In the consolation game, Harlan won 54-52 over Rich South.
