Akiba Hebrew's basketball team continued its mastery over visiting Woodlynde School on Tuesday afternoon, and Cougars' coach Steve Gittleman cited a solid defensive effort for the victory.
The Cougars dumped Woodlynde, 71-38, in a Tri-County League game for their second win over the Warriors this season and ran their overall record to 10-12 and 9-3 in the league.
"We played excellent pressure defense," Gittleman said. "Once we started pressing them, they weren't able to stay with us. Good defense has helped us out in all of our wins this year."
