The Hyde girls took advance of 32 Valley turnovers in a 48-28 win over the Cavaliers in a Western D quarterfinal Monday morning.

It was a tough ending to the season for the No. 6 Cavaliers (5-14), who played the Phoenix tough in a regular season meeting.

Hyde defeated Valley 52-42 at the end of January in Bingham.


Hyde coach Richard Polgar said the team was without injured 5-foot-10 forward Diamond Brown, which forced him to change the game plan against the Cavaliers.


“We were a little light in the post so we went with a 3-2 defense,” he said. “The offside guard had to get to the paint on the shot, and for the most part it worked.”


The Phoenix also played tough defense on Valley guard Teagan Laweryson.


The junior guard, despite finishing with a team-high 15 points, was often double-teamed and struggled to get good looks.


“We shadowed her,” Polgar said. “we played good pressure defense on the perimeter. We had to make sure we knew where (Laweryson) was on the court at all times.”
