Cy Woods "Big Three" on fire in win over Dekaney

Two things before we start, don't let the title or the score 58-41 fool you because Cy Woods Big Three can change multiple ways and on last night, it was Erica Ogwumike (16) Nancy Mulkey (14) and Catherine Reece (13) putting up the numbers however at any given time throughout the season Jasmine Williams and Tatyana Perez' names could be interchanged. Ogwumike was simply unbelievable getting to the rim every way imaginable and finishing with body control I wish I had on video. EO was so smooth that I added SILK to one of her nicknames because that smoothness was definitely one of the keys as this game started off super slow (12-10) after one and (23-20) at the half with Woods up

Lauren Grigsby and Jaelyn Richard Harris were keeping Dekaney close early however Nancy Mulkey was simply too much in multiple ways and I was talking with the Channel 11 cameraman about her and I told him if we count the deflections, she's close to a triple double. This game was still within reach reach after three (34-28) but Woods came alive in the final period. Jasmine Smith hit a couple of big shots to try and ignite a run however it wasn't meant to be as the Wildcats defeated the Wildcats
