continued Offensive rebounding was also a big part of West Genesee’s comeback. Marissa Hugdins attacked the boards and continued to give the Wildcats second-chance opportunities on offense, also finishing with seven points.
“Marissa Hudgins is a beast,” Hallinan said. “I think she’s the best rebounder in the league. She went after it time and time again.”
So now WG heads back to the Dome, where two years ago it lost in the sectional finals to C-NS in Breanna Stewart's senior year.
With Stewart gone, the Northstars appear more vulnerable, but did beat the Wildcats 52-38 back on Feb. 4 and avenged a defeat to Nottingham with its own second-half comeback to win the other AA semifinal 52-42.
