That called for a changed in strategy.
“We went to a man to man and left one of our girls guarding two players,” Hingson said. “We were double-teaming (Saunders) and letting someone else take over for them.
“They weren’t able to step up and do it.”
The Tigers also were able to stay competitive on the boards despite the 6-foot Coleman sitting for long stretches due to early foul trouble. Paschal led them with nine rebounds, Hilliard with just a 39-37 edge for the game.
“That was amazing; I know we got outrebounded if you look at the stats, but to continue without Aaliyah,” Hingson said. “She’s just a huge presence for us offensively and defensively in the paint.”
Chipley controlled bench scoring 22-2 led by Williams’ effort. She scored 12 points in the second half, with Paschal adding all but two of her 13 after halftime.
The Tigers also got two key baskets by Braylee Pooser midway through the fourth quarter that opened a 47-38 lead. The margin expanded to 53-41 on a basket by Williams with 2:23 remaining, and Chipley was able to withstand a Hilliard rally by making 10 of 11 free throws.
