Marquette wins the opening tip

Marquette, MIMarch 6, 2020 – The Marquette Redettes girls basketball team won the District 1 title on Friday evening with a 49-35 victory over the Traverse City Central Trojans.  The Redettes, coming off two games downstate this week, were able to take care of business on their home court and add some hardware to their collection in a game broadcast live on Fox Sports Marquette 105.1-99.9.

The Redettes won the game’s opening tip, and Aspen Michelin wasted no time making a layup and drawing a foul in the process.  Michelin converted the and-one, and shortly thereafter added two more to give Marquette an early 5-0 lead.  TCC wasn’t deterred though, and quickly cut the lead to 5-4.  The offensive pace was hectic through the first quarter, and through forced turnovers and steady shooting, the Redettes held a 14-11 advantage after one.

Marquette gained some momentum early in the second quarter when Aspen Michelin kept her impressive night going with a quick bucket.  Things slowed down after that for both teams, as shots weren’t falling as easily as they were in the first quarter.  Aspen Michelin was the exception to the rule, as she had 14 points at the half.  Behind strong play from Michelin that included a late triple, Marquette led 24-15 at halftime.

The Redettes came out charging in the third quarter, with early points from Rayna Warchock and Maria Millado fueling a 9-0 run to start the frame.  Even after the run ended, stellar shooting from Michelin, Millado, and Sofia van den Ende allowed the Redettes to extend their lead.   TCC was able to stop the bleeding, but not before Marquette opened up a 37-21 lead going into the fourth quarter.
