Lady Bucs Win Seven in a Row

The Milford High School girls’ basketball team has had quite a turnaround in the second half of the 2011 season, winning seven in a row before a 61-52 loss to Cape Henlopen on February. 4.

The Bucs started off the season with some big losses to Smyrna, 62-13, and Cape Henlopen, 54-32, but since defeating Laurel, 69-34 on January 1. Milford (10-6) has not scored less than 60 points during their win streak, including a 60-24 win on February 2 against Nandua.

The Bucs started off that game with a dominant lead that they took into the locker room at halftime, leading 36-12. In the third quarter, Nandua managed to score just four points to the Bucs 17.

Junior Aaliyah Davis believes that the Lady Bucs will be able to beat everyone left in their schedule if they keep up the offensive dominance. Davis must also keep scoring, something that she believes helps Milford to beat other teams.

“Being the leading scorer, it tells opponents what I can do,” said Davis. She also commented how the Bucs’ opponents have to focus more on her during games, and that lets her teammates have more chances to score.

With only four games left, the Bucs must continue to play like they did during their winning streak want to have a shot at making the state tournament.
