JANUARY 30, 2014 - WEST ALEXANDRIA
The weather has been brutal this winter forcing games to be cancelled and rescheduled on what seems like a regular basis.

For Covington, winners of five of the last seven games, looking to keep the momentum rolling is a challenge when two straight games get cancelled, forcing a seven-day layoff between games.

But Covington was able to overcome the adversity with an impressive 61-10 win over a very young Twin valley South team on Thursday.

"They (Twin Valley South) had some injuries and have been playing a lot of younger kids," said Covington coach Craig Maschino. "We knew that coming in and we stressed how important it is for us to come in playing with intensity regardless of whether its a team with a winning record or a losing record."

It was also important for Covington to finally get into the gym and shake off some of the rust, especially with a huge slate of games coming up.

"That's the thing, it seems like we haven't been in the gym forever," Maschino said. "It's really hard to develop some consistency when you have games moved and practices cancelled because of the weather."

Despite the lopsided win, Covington did leave points on the floor from missed bunnies at the basket and failing to convert on a consistent basis at the free throw line.

In all, Covington was 25 of 61 from the floor for 41% and just 7 of 17 from the free throw line for 41%.

" That's a direct relation to not being able to get into the gym consistently," said Maschino of his team's shooting. "We are normally a very good free throw shooting team, but we have struggled in our last four or five games. It takes reps in the gym and we haven't been able to do that."

What Covington was able to do was play smothering defense and crash the boards.

The Lady Buccs forced 25 turnovers and pulled down as many offensive rebounds (20) as Twin Valley South had in total rebounds.

The result was 43 more shot attempts for Covington than what Twin Valley South had.

"We talked about playing aggressive and just playing our style of basketball," Maschino explained. "The girls did a nice job defensively with ball pressure and forcing them into mistakes."

Covington took command early, surging to an 18-4 lead after one and pushing the margin to 31-8 at the break.

The Lady Bucc then outscored the Panthers 30-2 in the second half, all the while utilizing every player on the varsity roster as nine of the eleven girls in a Covington uniform scored on the night.

The win improves Covington's record to 8-9 overall and 6-4 in the CCC.

The Lady Buccs host Newton on Saturday.
