After watching her team get waxed by top-ranked Timpview on Tuesday, East head coach JoAnn Orr had more than a few words to say to her team at practice on Wednesday. Enough to make her a bit hoarse.

But the discourse didn't fall on deaf ears as the third-ranked Leopards jumped out early and never looked back in a 61-40 home victory over Sky View Thursday night.Senior forward Charlotte Norman poured in a game-high 20 points for East (2-1), which increased its intensity and used a strong pressure defense in the first half to rattle the Bobcats.

"The difference was that we came out with more intensity," said Orr. "Timpview's intensity was very high and that took us out of our game."

Another difference was that East was able to score in the first quarter. The Leopards fell behind 23-0 to Timpview before finding the nets. But against Sky View, East was able to dump the ball inside to its post players for some easy layins and a number of fouls.

It only got easier when Sky View's main inside player Taffy Smart picked up her third foul midway in the first quarter and sat on the bench for the next 10 minutes.

"We have great inside players and we want to get the ball inside," Orr added. "What we want is the high percentage shot."

After leading 16-8 at the end of the first period, guard Brooke Neeley took over in the second, scoring all eight of her points in the period and helping the Leopards to a 33-16 lead.

East went back to its post players in the third as Norman, Tarynn Tanner and Brooke Stevens scored all but two of East's points in the quarter en route to a 22-point bulge.

Tanner added 10 points for the Leopards, while Melissa Nyman topped Sky View with 12 points.
