By izzy Published: February 15, 2010

The Hudson girls baskeetball team (13-6) will open play 2:45 Saturday afternoon against a solid Kent Roosevelt team, which is 11-7 after defeating Garfield Saturday, 78-44. This is the third game of a tripleheader that day, with No. 2 seed Wadsworth opening plat 11:30 in the morning against Garfield followed by Kenmore and Copley at 1:15.

“We did beat them earlier this year at our place. I thought we would get the three or four seed and the kind of teams we though would be in our bracket and end up were we did,”  said Hudson coach Dennis Lawler, “They are physical tough team.”

Lawler said that he did not want a first round bye because he feared a long layoff of 10 days or more would be detrimental.

“We wanted to keep in a routine,” Lawler said.

Hudson finishes the regular season Wednesday night at home against NOC Valley Division foe Strongsville.

Hudsn's top scorer is junior guard Jessica Monsman.
