Winless no more.
The Scottie girls basketball team erased the zero they had in the win column on Saturday night at home in front of an energized crowd as they squeaked by with a 42-40 victory over Harlem.
Girls head coach Emilee Morehouse said that the team is relieved to get their first win of the season.
“They [the girls] were excited,” said Morehouse. “There was a lot of encouragement coming from them after the game.”
The excitement didn’t come without a heart-stopping final few seconds of the game for Morehouse.
Harlem had the ball for the final shot and had multiple looks at the basketball for the potential game-winning shot.
“All I could think of was ‘Do not foul’,” said Morehouse. “I did not want to give them a chance for that free throw to tie the game.”
Things don’t get any easier for Glasgow after their win as their reward is with a showdown against conference leader Malta.
On top of that, Glasgow freshman Khloe Krumwiede is sidelined with a broken bone in her foot, something that Moorehouse said has been bothering her since around Christmas break.
“Her foot gradually got worse so she finally got an X-ray and it showed a break in the bone,” Morehouse said. “The issue is that she had been playing on it broken for a bit so the bone started to heal on its own.”
Morehouse said that Krumwiede is in a walking boot now and she expects to find out more about the injury within the next couple of weeks.
