FCC takes Hawks to school in JuCo
By BILL STERNER / Staff Correspondent
Frederick Community College women's basketball coach Jack Mehl believes that every game his Cougars play is a learning experience.
So when Mehl reviews Wednesday's 70-50 win over rival Hagerstown Community College at the HCC athletic complex, the teacher should be pleased with his pupils.
FCC (14-4, 7-0 Maryland JuCo) has won 12 in a row and the Cougars are making it look easy. Wednesday was an example of textbook basketball, as the Cougars contolled the tempo of the game, played great defense and forced the normally prolific HCC guards into taking uncomfortable shots at the basket.
On offense, the Cougars ran the floor behind diminutive point guard Dani Thomas, who scored 18 points, but was much more of a force setting up the Cougars' passing lanes and keeping HCC (8-6, 5-3) reeling on their heels.
