No tropical storm as Hurricanes defeat Bears

In a battle between the last two undefeated teams in District 23, Hastings jumped out to an early 8-0 lead however a 9-4 run to close the quarter had the Fighting Bears up only by 3 and when the half closed, Hightower was up 20-17. Not a pretty first half for either team, too many turnovers however a couple of things stood out, Hastings has a legitimate chance to sneak up on some people in the playoffs and create some problems

Much of that "sneaking up" depends on Ashley Moore who just does some things athletically you can't teach and with her size and length, she's definitely capable of a double double every night while flirting with triple or even quadruple doubles because she plays the passing lane. Her supporting cast also has some athleticism and multiple long range shooters so we'll just see how this plays out

Eneily Rodriguez basically took this game over scoring double digits in the 3rd quarter in which she and Adrianna each dropped threes while Jasmine Harvey nailed a couple of them plus that electrifying Maddison Glass did a little bit of everything to help them to a 44-29 lead after three which kind of changed the momentum for good. The Hurricanes are still without Treazure Mouton and Taylor Howard, I called them a  sleeper to get out of here, at 100% they'll be wide awake
