Edgemont senior Shayna Davner had a cold during Tuesday’s 44-34 win over host Bronxville, but she played like she had a fever.
Davner was hot, finishing with 27 points. She also grabbed five rebounds.
“I was feeling dizzy during the warmup, so I thought I wouldn’t be able to focus during the game,” Davner said. “I didn’t think I would make the passes that I wanted to and play as hard as I wanted to because I was distracted. It worked out. Some people play better when they are sick and I guess I’m one of those people.”
Of Davner’s 27, nine came from the free-throw line. She made the nine in 10 attempts, something she has been working on.
“I noticed last year that my free throws weren’t falling,” Davner said. “My free-throw percentage was somewhere around 70 percent. I felt like that it wasn’t good enough. I think if you’ve worked hard enough to get a foul-shot opportunity, you have to make it, especially in tight games.”
The Panthers have seven games left in the regular season, including the rest of the League 2-D schedule.
“This game showed us that even when things get tight, we can pull out the win,” Davner said. “We’re able to compete with every team. We played well, but I think we can play better.”
Claire Sargent scored 14 points for the Broncos.
