Prior to the 2015-16 season, the Twinsburg girls basketball team built itself into quite a powerhouse in the last eight years.
It's safe to say the Lady Tigers are still very much a powerhouse again this winter.
Host Twinsburg cruised to a lopsided 71-28 victory over Hudson Dec. 17.
With the win, the Lady Tigers, who earned their fifth straight victory, improved to 5-1 overall and 5-0 in the Suburban League National Conference.
Twinsburg has had the Lady Explorers' number in recent years.
The Lady Tigers forced 31 turnovers and turned many of those steals into fast-break layups.
Twinsburg also was superior inside as it had a 37-25 advantage on the glass.
If the Lady Tigers weren't pounding the ball inside, they moved the ball around the floor and sank open jumpers from the perimeter.
Twinsburg made seven 3-pointers and converted 14-of-23 shots from the foul line.
While the Lady Explorers (2-5, 1-4) received plenty of floor burns for their tireless hustle and effort, they had too many flaws in their execution.
Hudson had key players in foul trouble throughout the afternoon and its shooting accuracy, which has been an issue for much of the season, was off target once again.
The Lady Explorers struggled to put the ball in the basket even without anyone guarding them. They were just 3-of-12 from the charity stripe and made just 11 total field goals. The Lady Tigers converted 22 total field goals.
A total of 11 players scored for Twinsburg, which earned a 52-32 victory in the junior varsity contest.
Senior guard/forward Dasja Anderson led the Lady Tigers with a game-high 15 points and senior guard/forward Jasmine Bishop added 13 points. Senior guard Jailyn Reid contributed 10 points for Twinsburg.
Sophomore guard Emma Messina led Hudson with 12 points. She knocked down all three of the Lady Explorers' 3-pointers.
