Forcing turnovers while playing tenacious defense is a trademark of Hampton basketball. This was never more true than on Thursday evening at Van Huss/ White gym as Hampton knocked off Chuckey-Doak 82-50 in a non conference clash.

The Bulldogs forced 16 first half turnovers and took a 42-24 lead at the halftime break behind 10 points from junior guard Charlie Butler and six each by Wyatt Lyons and Jose Velazquez.

“We played good defense and forced some turnovers,” Bulldogs head coach Ned Smith said. “But on the flip side we turned it over about 20 times ourselves. I would like to cut that down to about 10. I like the way we shared the ball tonight. We had 17 assists and we got everyone involved.”

A third quarter basket from Adam McClain staked Hampton to a 50-33 lead with 4:05 left in the period. Buckets after steals from Nathan Norris and Lyons gave Hampton its largest lead of the contest at 55-34 with 3:24 still remaining in the third quarter.

Hampton took a 64-40 lead into the final period and were never threatened thereafter.

In all the ‘Dogs collected 27 turnovers from the Black Knights and C-D showed some frustration as Peyton Fletcher tangled with Jared Wiltshire at midcourt after a rebound. Both players were assessed a technical foul.

Dakota Greer led all scorers with 14 points for C-D, while Butler was high man on a balanced Hampton scoring ledger with 12 points. Norris and Lyons each scored 10 for the ‘Dogs.

“We have been needing a win,” Smith said after his team snapped a two game losing string. “South Greene got us, so it was good to get this one. We have a lot of kids that can play so when we get in foul trouble we have 10-11 kids that can play different positions.”

After a first half in which Hampton seemed like a truck stuck in the mud offensively, the Lady Bulldogs turned up the intensity in the second half for the victory.

The first half was nip and tuck with neither team able to take more than a three point advantage, but Chuckey-Doak (4-5 overall) led 19-18 after a deuce from Erica Lamb, who then gave the Black Knights a three point lead at 21-18 with a bucket off the baseline in bounds pass.

The Black Knights led 14-13 after one period with guard Candy Majors knocking down a pair of three point shots for Chuckey-Doak in the period. Alexus Grubbs had a trey among her seven first period points for Hampton (7-4 overall).

A steal and an end to end dribble drive by C-D post Brittney Ramsey saw the Knights take a 23-22 lead, and moments later Ramsey repeated the feat to stake C-D to a 25-22 halftime lead.

In the first half, Hampton committed 10 turnovers of which Lady Bulldogs head coach Bud Hazelwood said, “There were several topics of discussion at halftime. Turnovers, lack of intensity, defense, and rebounding were among them. We came out scoring in the second half, but we still weren’t playing any defense. We traded baskets with them until midway through the third period when we switched up defenses.”

C-D took it’s biggest lead of the game on a three point play by senior guard Keri Ricker that gave the Knights a 30-26 lead, but Grubbs took down a rebound and raced end to end for a layup to cut the lead to two.

After a C-D bucket by Ramsey, Bree Hoyle hit a basket and free throw for the ‘Dogs to make it a one point game. A Grubbs three, followed by a shot in the lane from sophomore Shyanne Tuelle gave the ‘Dogs a 36-32 lead at the 4:31 mark of the third quarter.

A Tuelle trey, followed by a deuce from Grubbs gave Hampton a 41-34 lead inside of two minutes left in the period. Grubbs added another deuce to give the ‘Dogs a 43-34 lead and force a C-D timeout.

Hampton outscored C-D 24-12 in the third period to take a 46-37 lead into the final stanza. The ‘Dogs extended to a 53-40 lead at the 5:31 mark of regulation after a technical foul on Ramsey and Grubbs knocked down three-of-four.

Grubbs led all scorers with 21 points and nine rebounds for the ‘Dogs, while Tuelle added 13 and senior post Megan Garland had eight points and eight boards.
