MONROE— The Lady Jets' New Years resolution, according to coach Sam Beer was simple: don't wait until January 1 to play well.
The tactic worked wonders for Adams Central against the visiting Muncie Southside Lady Rebels who were blown out of the building early and often by the Lady Jets in a 70-42 rout.
AC scored a season-high for points in a quarter in the first when they came out and put 23 on the board compared to Southside's nine and the tone was set for the game.
The Lady Jets' pressure defense caused the Rebels fits forcing bad passes and unforced turnovers giving AC the edge in points off of turnovers, 30-10.
"We were just doing things well," coach Beer stated after the game. "We played the pace we wanted to play. To score 70 points at that pace is what really helped us. We shot the ball well tonight."
The Lady Jets shot over 41% for the game, something they have struggled to do all season long. The pace was vigorous for most of the game when AC pushed down the court looking for easy shots and getting them.
The win puts AC at 4-7 on the season with Lakewood Park Christian coming to town next Tuesday with a JV start of 6 p.m.
