GAME STATS  ||  CUMULATIVE SEASON STATS

The Wahoo Warriors prevailed over Arlington Eagles, 48-44 in the 1st round of Subdistrict play held at David City Aquinas. Perfect free throws and a three by Kendal Brigham put the Warriors in motion. Kelsie Sears followed the pursuit with a 2-pointer and free throw of her own. Before the quarter ended, Autumn Iversen took to the line, finishing on one of her two foul shots; however, it was Taylor Luben's savviness that came up big, grabbing the offensive put back after the missed free throw and earning an and-one. Wahoo took a 12-10 lead after 8 minutes of play. Fouls and turnovers cause inconsistency for Wahoo, but they still were able to build a 7-point lead to gain a little breathing room. A Luben break away layup and Kharissa Eddie’s clean up work expanded the lead, as Brigham sank her second trey and layup. Wahoo headed to the locker room, up 23-16. The Warriors expanded the lead at one time to eleven during the third; however, it began to dwindled over time. Threes by Iversen, Sears and Brigham, and a couple of deuces sank, but the fouls and turnovers allowed the Eagles to fly, outscoring Wahoo 14-13 in the third period. Wahoo still held a 6-point lead entering the fourth quarter. The Eagles kept striking and capitalizing on Wahoo’s errors, and the final stretch became intense. Eddie’s solid takes to the basket were much needed and made free throws down the stretch was a must. Wahoo found the line to be their friend and kept a clear 4-point lead. The final seconds of the game seemed like eternity; however, the light shined on Wahoo with a 48-44 victory! Wahoo will play #2 North Bend Central in the Subdistrict Finals Thursday at 7:00 p.m.

Wahoo girls find 'groove,' solve Malcolm for road win
(by Luke Mullin, Lincoln Journal-Star, Feb. 11, 2020)

The Wahoo Warriors and the Malcolm Clippers tipped off their last regular season game Tuesday night. It was a defensive battle for much of the game, and offensive scores were scarce in the first half. After five minutes of play, Wahoo and Malcolm were tied 2-2. An aggressive steal and and-one play by Autumn Iversen, and a three by Toni Greenfield, gave the Warriors a 7-6 lead. The second quarter brought more scoreless moments; however, two huge threes by Taylor Luben and Kendal Brigham gave Wahoo a one-point edge at half-time, 13-12. Malcolm scored quickly to take back the lead, but a change in defensive positioning proved to be the key. The fire was lit and the gloom disappeared when Luben sank her second three, followed by another from Brigham. Wahoo pursued with full force after that, and broke loose a 16-0 run on the Clippers. Malcolm was forced to go man, but that only gave Wahoo more power, as more Warriors caught on fire. Wahoo outscored Malcolm 18-2 in the final eight minutes of play, and sealed a 41-22 victory! “This was a big win for us and I’m super proud of these young ladies!" said Head Coach Linda Walker.

Wahoo captured a 41-35 victory over the Arlington Eagles. The Warriors had a slow start due to unexpected turnovers, and found themselves trailing Arlington, 9-12. The Warriors found their groove and became more aggressive defensively, and put some good finishing touches on the offensive end. Steals by Toni Greenfield, Alyssa Luedtke, and Taylor Luben disrupted the Eagles' progression, and a trio of threes by Kendal Brigham and Kelsie Sears fueled a 13-6 second quarter. Wahoo took the 22-18 lead into halftime. Wahoo came out of halftime and set the tempo once again, with a steal by Autumn Iversen that led Luben to finish on an and-one. Three more consecutive steals by Kharissa Eddie, and another by Iversen and Sears gave Wahoo the offensive advantage, expanding the lead to 32-18. After several minutes and attempts late in the third and well into the fourth period, the score remained dead locked, 37-26. Arlington tried to close the gap, but Wahoo remained in control. Wahoo sank the free throws needed and capped the win. Wahoo's win sealed a 7-1 regular season tie in the Capitol Conference play with Syracuse.

GAME STATS  ||  CUMULATIVE SEASON STATS

Wahoo fought through some adversity several times against the Platteview Trojans Thursday night in the Conference semi round. Wahoo trailed early, but found their fire and tied the game up 12 all after 8 minutes of play. It was a pretty slow second quarter for both teams on the offensive end, but Wahoo's defense was fierce, holding the Trojans to just 2 points. The Warriors lead at halftime, 18-14. The Trojans came out and switched it up on defense, catching the Warriors off guard. Many turnovers and poor decisions led to 12 unanswered points. After a timeout, Wahoo found their juice. Two back-to-back baseline shots by Kharissa Eddie, followed by Kendal Brigham’s and-one, ramped up the Warrior intensity. The Trojans outscored the Warriors 16-13 in the third; however, Wahoo took back the lead and never let it go. The Warriors outscored the Trojans 12-3, and the 1-3-1 was the key defense tonight. Wahoo won 43-33 and advances to the NCC Championship game at Arlington this Saturday against the Syracuse Rockets.

Wahoo trailed early against the Mercy Monarchs to start the game on their home court. A timeout turned the Warrior switch on, forcing 12 of 32 game turnovers and a 20-14 lead. Wahoo never again trailed; however, inconsistent team play caused rhythm issues throughout the game, and allowed the Monarchs to keep swarming until the end. Wahoo took the win 46-35, and moved to 7-4 for the season

GAME STATS  ||  CUMULATIVE SEASON STATS

The Wahoo Warriors took the #1 Crete Cardinals into O.T. and almost pulled off what would of been a huge victory! Wahoo's defensive game plan was key to the disruptions of the Cardinals' deadly shooter, Morgan Maly. Five foot-four Kendal Brigham took charge of defending the D-1 6’ Creighton recruit, while the other Warriors helped defend and shine in the diamond. Wahoo led at halftime 18-17 and came out 3rd quarter with the same intensity. Crete outscored Wahoo in the third, 12-11, and tied the game up 29-29. Wahoo held strong in the fourth. It was Autumn Iversen’s defensive rebound that led to a coast-to-coast layup, followed by an offensive rebound put back that guaranteed the overtime. Despite the outcome of the game, Wahoo showed poise and toughness against a very good team.

GAME STATS  ||  CUMULATIVE SEASON STATS

Wahoo faced a disappointing loss to start the new year to Lincoln Lutheran. Too little on the scoring end, turnovers and defensive breakdowns put the Warriors in jeopardy. Wahoo trailed at halftime by 4, 15-19; however, a terrible third quarter did them in, falling to a 15-point deficit, 17- 32. Wahoo finally awoke in the fourth and found their intensity, sinking 6 three pointers. The comeback, though, was too late in the game to avenge the damage that was created in the third, and Wahoo dropped to 6-3.

Several key Warrior steals produced layups, while Kelsie Sears' success in the paint was a key factor against their zone defense. Seward never stopped firing the three; however, the Warriors took control and never looked back. Wahoo wins the holiday tournament and ends 2019 on a great win!

The belief for a victory was inspired by a Taylor Luben three, followed by two steals by Kharissa Eddie and four perfect free throws cashed in by Kendal Brigham. Wahoo found what it took and their 'all in' tenacious defense was the key. With 18.2 seconds on the clock, Wahoo came down and ran a last second set to perfection and roared to an awesome 41-40 victory!

GAME STATS

The Wahoo Warriors opened with a tremendous first half performance against Bennington, 40-37, but unfortunately, the second half didn’t mirror the first. The Badgers slowed the game by going to zone, but revved it up with lights out from beyond the arc in the third quarter. The Warriors didn’t have enough mojo to sustain the shift in momentum, and fell to a 68-53 opening loss.
