The Dukes, in contrast, had great balance. Juneman and Carley Schwartz each scored eight points and Sydney Molis, who guarded Stutelberg, added seven points and three steals.
“It shows that they can’t play like we can,” Krissinger said. “They take away one of our players, we’ve got four other good ones ready to go.”
That works at both ends of the floor.
“Molis is 6-feet tall, her arms are so long, she takes away shooters’ ability to shoot the ball,” Collings said. “That’s what she was able to do to Stutelberg today.”
The Dukes needed that because they weren’t able to stop Huff, who didn’t get enough help.
“Taylor did a great job tonight,” Glenbard West coach Kristi Faulkner said. “She was triple-teamed and still finds a way to score and got a lot of rebounds.
“We just had a hard time scoring in the fourth quarter. We hurried up on offense where we were taking quick shots versus being a little more patient and looking for a good shot, and I think they attacked the boards and got a couple crucial boards at the end.”
