While Loudonville girls basketball coach Tyler Bates and his assistants mulled over a disappointing first half outside the locker room on Dec. 27 against East Knox, players were inside debating the flaws that had left the Redbirds with only a slim lead.
Those meetings blended together, and with an 8-0 run to open the second half, the Redbirds didn't have much else to worry about on their way to a lopsided win at the Mansfield Christian Holiday Showcase.
Nikki Weber scored 18 of her game-high 25 points in the second half, three others chipped in eight and Loudonville moved to 7-1 on the season with a 64-32 drubbing of East Knox, which was held to just 16 points in the second half.
"We went into the locker room at halftime and we all said -- we need to fix this, we need to talk better, we need to play better defense, we need to execute our plays, stay spaced," Weber said.
Weber flirted with a triple-double, adding seven rebounds and seven steals to her ledger, while Madison Leedy, Steph Kline and Emily Seboe each added eight points and five rebounds.
