Emily Elmgreen wasn’t about to take credit for her career-high 33 points. Instead, the Evergreen senior deferred the accolades to her teammates, who drove the lane before dishing the ball off to her. That’s why she went off for 24 points in the second half in the host Lady Cougars’ 67-45 girls basketball conquest of Conifer on Jan. 24.
“(They) were cluttering up the defense, and it left me wide open. I had plenty of time” to get her feet set and square up for shots, Elmgreen said.
