Bill Iezzi: Salem Girls' Hoops Happening

Don't count out Samem, the sixth seed in South Jersey Group 1 girls' basketball, against Florence, the top seed in Central Jersey Group 1.

The two teams are scheduled to clash tomorrow (March 11) at Williamstown in a state semifinal game.

Florence, which drew a bye in round 1 of the sectional tournament, has averaged 53.6 points and allowed 27.6 in three playoff games.

Salem has averaged 52.5 and permitted 44.5 in four playoff games. The Rams gave up a lot more points than Florence, but if their man defense can play tighter, they certainly have the athletes to score points.

Salem junior point guard Shaqui Coppage scored a game-high 33 points in a dramatic, come-from-behind victory over top-seeded Paulsboro yesterday for the sectional crown.

Salem center Theresa Krawiec pumped in 15 points, including the gamne winner at the buzzer.

Both reached double numbers while being closely guarded.
