After losing five of its last six games, the Hudson girls basketball team now has a winning streak.
The host Explorers earned their second consecutive victory after routing Brecksville-Broadview Heights 51-27 Saturday at Ray "Buck" Hyser Gymnasium.
Hudson dominated the game from start to finish, particularly in the first half. The Explorers, who improved to 7-8 overall and 3-6 in the Suburban League National Conference, led 38-14 at halftime.
"We really put a lot of pressure [on the Bees], mixing up defenses," Hudson head coach Dennis Lawler said. "We were great moving the ball and made the extra passes to find the open person for shots."
The Explorers knocked down eight 3-pointers. Sophomore guard Paige Albrecht led Hudson with 13 points, including 11 in the first quarter. Albrecht was forced into the starting lineup Saturday since Ali Menendez was unavailable due to an injury.
"Paige was a huge spark," Lawler said. "It was great to see that when we talked about stepping up and taking advantage [of opportunities] when given your opportunity, she did that [Saturday]. I’m very proud of her. "
Jocelyn Weaver finished with nine points and Delaney DiGeronimo and Sarah Hinkle contributed eight and seven points, respectively, for the Explorers.
