LaFAYETTE — The Chambers Academy girls basketball team remained undefeated after a blowout win over Eastwood on Thursday.

“I thought we played well again,” Chambers Academy girls head basketball coach Brandi Fuller said. “We’re shooting the ball much better than we have been in the past, and my post players played excellent [on Thursday].”

Both of the Chambers Academy bigs finished the night in double-digit scoring.

“I hate to single just the post players out, all of them played well,” Fuller said. “I’m mixing all of my guards up, and giving them time. I’ve got four guards that I wished I had on the floor at the same time. We mix them around, give them a break, they’re all playing well.”

Fuller said that she was also impressed by the Rebels’ intensity on defense on Thursday as well. 

“That’s what I’ve been stressing the whole time,” Fuller said. “Intense, intense, intense defense. We like to play [a full-court] press [defense]. The players like to press. It’s kind of hard to sit back and play zone.” 

Now sitting at 3-0, the Rebels travel to Lanett for their biggest test yet at Springwood School.

“The girls freeze up when we walk in that Springwood gym,” Fuller said. “I have been working with them to get that mentality out of their head that we can play with them. I think these last couple of games, we’ve got the confidence to do that.”

With the team’s play so far this season, from the guard and post play offensively to the full-court press defensively, Fuller’s one key to coming out of Springwood with a victory was simple.

“Keep going,” she said.
