Dayton, OH- Sinclair Women’s Basketball (16-3, 5-2) cruise over the Hawks of Hocking College for an easy win with a score of 71-29. The Tartan Pride looked good on both offense and defense sides. Every player for Sinclair was able to get into the game and score some points.
In the 1st quarter, Sinclair was looking good with their offensive and defensive rebounds. They did falter with their turnovers on offense, but were able to hold off Hocking College by forcing them to make bad shots and turn the ball over themselves. Defense was solid for most of the game and that started in the 1st quarter. At the end of the 1st quarter, Sinclair was up 20-6. Doriann Carter (5-09/SO-Northmont H.S.) led the team with 8 points and Zechariah Bond (5-10/FR-Troy H.S.) had 4 points.
The 2nd quarter was all about the defense. Sinclair held Hocking College with their defense and more rebounding. Forced turnovers on the Hawks stood out. Layups for the Tartans were working and going in. Before the buzzer, Dorianna Carter hit the basket for a 2-point FG to put Sinclair up 42-11 at halftime. Nia Martin (5-04/FR-Trotwood-Madison H.S.) had 6 points and Aaryn Evans (6-00/FR-Thurgood Marshall H.S.) had 4 points.
The Tartans went on a 7-2 run to start the 3rd quarter. Even with this run, the offense for the Tartans was a little slow. Free throws were being missed and shots were not going in. Sinclair dominated again in the 3rd quarter and led Hocking College 52-17. Reanna Dudley (5-04/SO-Chaminade Julienne H.S.) had 5 points.

This game was all Tartans and the final score was 71-29. Lauren Roetgerman (5-10/FR-Minster H.S.) and Madison Connally-Banks (6-01/FR-Fairmont H.S.) each had 5 points in the final quarter.
