EAST LANSING – It’s all about how one handles the pressure.

The pressure of the moment.

The pressure of the game.

The defensive pressure.

On Saturday morning from the Breslin Center on the campus of Michigan State University the Mt. Pleasant Sacred Heart girls basketball team buckled under the never-ending pressure being thrown its way from top-ranked Pittsford.

The Irish, who entered the contest ranked third in Class D, stayed with the Wildcats for the better part of the first half before turnovers and easy transition baskets on the other end ended their season via a 48-30 defeat in the Class D state title game.

“I thought we had a good first half, we got to a good point there (but) they had a run to start the second half and that got us on our heels a little bit,” said SHA head coach Damon Brown, whose team closes the campaign out at 24-2. “Hats off to them, their pressure forced us to do things faster than we wanted to and made it difficult for us to get into our offense. When you can’t get into your offense it’s difficult to be effective.”

The Irish took a 2-0 lead on a pair of free throws from Hadyn Terwilliger with 6:28 left in the first quarter. A three-pointer from freshman guard Scout Nelson made it 8-6 halfway through the frame, but from this point on out things became very difficult for the Irish.

Senior All-State center Averi Gamble sat a good part of the first half after picking up her second foul with 5:14 left in the opening stanza. Yet the Irish did a nice job of weathering the storm initially as the first quarter ended with Pittsford (27-0) leading 11-8.

A Nelson three-pointer in the second quarter knotted the game at 13-13 with 5:12 left before the break, yet the Wildcats turned up the defensive pressure and forced eight second-quarter turnovers which led to nine unanswered points and a 22-13 halftime lead.

A 7-0 run to open the third quarter pretty much sealed the game as SHA was not able to get back within striking range.

“It was a tough press and we had not really seen anything like that this season,” said SHA senior Megan English of Pittsford’s defensive pressure. “By the time we got into our groove in the second half it was a little too late.”

From the outside looking in the game pitted two very different styles against one another in that Pittsford wants to play super-fast while SHA prefers to set up in the half court.

In the end the up-tempo style won the day.

For the game SHA turned it over 29 times while Pittsford finished with 18 turnovers.

The Irish also took 18 less shots from the field and were out-rebounded 30-22.

Nelson led the Irish with nine points while Gamble chipped in eight points and seven boards.

Sophie Ruggles added in six points.

Maddie Clark had a monster game for the Class D state champions as she had 23 points, 10 rebounds and four steals.

The Wildcats, who lost a heartbreaker in the Class D finals last year, will likely be an early favorite to repeat in 2017.
