The Landrum girls’ varsity basketball team won again at home, this time against the girls from Chapman High School. The final score was 48 – 45 at the end of a highly-contested match up.
The Cardinals came out slow in the first quarter but started to get rhythm towards the end. The first half had a lot of turnovers from both teams.
Chapman kept trying to pound the ball inside, which led Landrum to go to a zone defense to try and keep the ball outside. Landrum stayed in the first half by making their free throw shots and keeping a very tough defense.
The score went back and forth right before the end of the half and into the second. The game was still close through the third quarter. Both teams were trying to gain an advantage. Chapman with their inside game and Landrum with their quickness. Landrum went into the fourth quarter with a 35-32 edge.
