Despite defensive intensity, offense still not there for Lummi girls


Lummi's girls' basketball team played stiff defense, but couldn't muster up enough offense as it lost to Tulalip Heritage 59-14 on Tuesday, Feb. 4, at Lummi High School. The Blackhawks were led by Treena Humphreys' six points.

"We pressured really well. In the last game (against Tulalip) they had 10 turnovers, so we doubled that with our press," Lummi coach Randy Kaui said in a phone interview. "Treena got hurt, so she sat out the second half, but she played tough."

Harley Ellenwood added four points and Issabella James had three more for Lummi. Kaui was impressed with the defensive play of both Ellenwood and James at the top of the Blackhawks' press.

Lummi plays next at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 6, at Highland Christian.
