Lawrence passes early test
(Page 2 of 2)
A 26-point second quarter gave the Golden Tornadoes a 36-32 halftime lead, but Hawkins (six three-pointers) helped Floral Park close the gap in the third and inch ahead in the fourth. “They played a great game,” Supple said. “They ran some complicated offensive sets that caught our defense off-guard. They run a lot of screens and had a few guys get hot. Hawkins had one of those nights where everything he shot went in.”
The same could be said of Lyerly, who had six standard field goals, a trio of three-pointers and four free throws. “He’s been knocking on the door for a triple-double,” Supple said of Lyerly, who had 18 points against North Shore. “He’s been our glue. His versatility is such an advantage. Not many guys can guard him.”
Lawrence opened conference play with a 74-25 rout of Manhasset on Jan. 4. Robinson had 20 points and Daniel 16, but the biggest statistic came in the assist column as Supple’s team dished out 24 helpers. “It’s the most complete game we’ve played this season,” he said.
