Maret Coach Garrett O’Donnell can’t recall the last time his team shot lights out from the floor. What he and his players do remember well is that it’s been a long time – three years and five games, to be exact – since the Frogs beat Mid-Atlantic Conference rival Sidwell Friends.
During Tuesday’s home tilt, No. 12 Maret used a memorable performance from the field to erase its nightmarish skid, draining nine three-pointers in a 59-55 win against the ninth-ranked Quakers in Northwest.
Steffen Davis led the Maret (11-2, 2-0 MAC) barrage from long range, recording five three-pointers and a season-high 21 points. Meantime, Sidwell’s Josh Hart struggled with foul trouble, scoring a season-low eight points before fouling out with 7 minutes 21 seconds left in the contest.
“Against a great team like Sidwell, you have to do all the right things — shooting, rebounding and defending. Ultimately, along with our shooting, I thought we did a really good job on defense,” O’Donnell said. “[Hart] is such a good player that you’re not going to stop him, so we wanted to make him work for everything he got.”
