 “Even before we arrived here, I was feeling in a comfortable rhythm shooting in our gym back in Montclair; and, that translated to the game itself,” said Wiley. “This was my best offensive output in a big game this year, and I’m glad it came tonight.”  

The Lions hot shooting and solid defense in containing Gill’s 6-foot-6 University of Connecticut commit Gandy Malou-Mamel (13 points, 9 rebounds) for much of the evening helped keep IC in a fairly comfortable position with the lead all game long.

IC opened up a 37-22 lead with 4:44 left in the third quarter as Wiley scored seven points, and extended that to 45-30 heading into the fourth quarter.

Gill’s impressive Boston University-bound senior guard Brooke Baisley scored seven of her team-high 16 points in the fourth quarter, while junior Navy commit Sidney Quinn added 14 points for a highly-skilled and well-coached Gill squad.

“They have a nice team, but we were able to shoot the ‘3’ ball and do a good job defending their big girl, which really helped,” said Wiley. “We really like the way we’re playing right now.

“We had a lot of doubters early in the season who didn’t think all our players would mesh together with the new girls coming in. But, being in school together, and just spending a lot of time with each other on and off the court has been a huge plus and we’re really meshing as a unit.

“We’re more than ready to compete for a state championship!”
