Printy, Hamlin lead victory push in Game Time contest

The presence of the Iowa women’s basketball team was felt in a big way on Tuesday evening in North Liberty.

In the Game Time contest between Active Endeavors/McCurry’s and Goodfellow Printing/ Imprinted Sportswear, the four Hawkeyes — three current and one former — had more points than everyone else combined.

Incoming Iowa freshman Jaime Printy had 20 points, six rebounds, and five assists to help lead Active Endeavors/McCurry’s to an 84-73 win. Also coming up big in victory was Hawkeye senior-to-be JoAnn Hamlin, who finished with 16 points and six boards.

Iowa sophomore-to-be Shante Jones had game- high with 27 points and 12 rebounds, while former Hawkeye Kristi Smith had 20 points for Goodfellow/ Imprinted in defeat.

Absent from the court again Tuesday night for Goodfellow/Imprinted was Iowa sophomore Kamille Wahlin, and Jones said the team misses her.

“She would be a big help,” Jones said. “We don’t have very much depth on our bench. Her dribbling and shooting skills would have been appreciated. She was definitely missed.”

Although Printy came up on the winning end, she concurred with Jones.

“[Wahlin] is a great player, and she would help any team,” she said.

Jones said she didn’t really know how the game slipped away from Goodfellow/Imprinted.

“I’m not really sure why [we lost],” Jones said. “I guess we just had some defensive mistakes, and our shots just weren’t falling.”

The game started with Active Endeavors/McCurry’s jumping out to a 10-2 lead, sparked by five of Printy’s 20 points. Minutes later, the squad went on another 10-3 run to widen its lead. Goodfellow/ Imprinted then answered with a 15-2 run of its own right, but Active Endeavors/McCurry’s closed out the half on a 12-0 spurt that featured Hamlin scoring half her points, giving Active Endeavors/McCurry’s a 42-34 halftime lead.

“I did all right,” Hamlin said. “I forced a few shots, but we did well as a team. We passed the ball well and shot well from the floor.”

To open the second half, Goodfellow/Imprinted went on an 11-6 run behind seven of Jones’ 27 points. Goodfellow/Imprinted eventually got within two points, but Active Endeavors/McCurry’s never relinquished its lead the rest of the way.

Printy said teamwork proved to be her squad’s key to the 11-point win.

“You can always play better [individually],” she said. “But we played well as a team. Our defense was better tonight, and everyone was hitting her shots.”

Also having big games for Active Endeavors/McCurry’s was Kirkwood’s Kalli Hansen, who scored 12 points and pulled down 10 boards, and Carlton College’s Ally Weaver, who had 12 points as well.
