Southeast Raleigh hold off Green Hope girls basketball comeback
November 28, 2012Tri-Nine Conference
CARY - Green Hope and Southeast Raleigh’s girls’ basketball teams were in an unusual spot after Tuesday’s nonconference showdown. One lost, the other won, but yet both were happy with how their teams came back.
For Southeast Raleigh, it prided itself on how it was able to withstand a late rally on the road to come away with a 50-42 victory in a place where only one road team has won since the beginning of the 2009 season.
And for Green Hope, it took comfort in how it didn’t give up after trailing by 18 after the first quarter.
At the time, the 22-4 Southeast lead going into the second quarter seemed insurmountable, but Green Hope led 37-36 at the start of the fourth quarter.
But Bulldogs (2-0) point guard Alexus Hicks hit back-to-back 3-pointers to put Southeast up for good.
“We showed some mental toughness,” Southeast coach Nicole Sampson said. “To have that shown this early in the season gives me high hopes.”
