BELLBROOK – Led by 6-2 center Gabby Ozoude, unbeaten and fourth-ranked Bellbrook overpowered Wilmington 62-39 Monday night in a non-league game on Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

Ozoude put on a dazzling show as she towered over the other nine players on the floor, finishing with 27 points, five rebounds and four blocked shots. She was 13 for 17 from the field.

“She’s a force,” WHS head coach Mark Short said of Ozoude.

Wilmington was led by Mya Jackson who had 12 points and Katlyn Jamiel, who had 11 points. Sarah Quallen came off the bench to lead WHS with seven rebounds. Jackson also had seven boards. Faith Sanderson, who was in foul trouble much of the night, led with three assists.

Cassidy Hofacker scored 10 for Bellbrook while Stephanie Dorn tossed in nine.

“You have to be at your best to have a chance (against Bellbrook),” said Short. “And that was the worst we’ve played in five or six games. They had a lot to do with it.”

The battle against Bellbrook is just another in a run of games against top-flight, state-ranked type teams. Wilmington is coming off a close loss late last week to state-ranked Miami Trace and Clinton-Massie, who was state-ranked in the first girls poll, later this week.

“I’ve seen Bellbrook three or four times this year and they’ve yet to play man defense,” Short said. “They chase you and trap you and with their length make it hard on you. And then they have (Ozoude) to protect the middle.”
