A day after she was named a McDonald’s all-American, St. John’s guard Lindsay Allen displayed the mettle that earned her the honor in Friday’s pressure-packed game against Paul VI. With her team down by two late in the fourth quarter, the senior All-Met made the most notable hustle play of the night.
When a teammate’s three-point attempt fell short and the ball fell in front of two Panther post players, Allen darted across the court and through the wall to grab the rebound, drop in a layup and draw a foul. And after she converted the three-point play, it was evident that the Cadets weren’t going to be denied.
“We always talk about, emphasize offensive rebounding at practice,” Allen said of her key play down the stretch. “Amari [Carter] shot it, and I was like, ‘Okay, I should crash.’”
