ROCHELLE — Preparation was key to the Lady Hubs’ 55-37 victory over Yorkville as Rochelle picked up its 15th win of the season on Friday to remain unbeaten at home.

With both teams measuring each other up early, both Rochelle and Yorkville took time to heat up in the first quarter but the Hubs managed to build a small 14-10 lead.

Senior forward Michelle Dobbs accounted for half of the Lady Hubs’ first quarter points, but it was the push by senior forward Talina Nava that really seemed to catch Rochelle head coach Kay Dobbs’s attention.

“Talina really didn’t feel well tonight,” said Dobbs. “She had been battling a cold, but you never would have guessed it tonight. She had a tremendous game.”

Nava’s effort led Rochelle to a big second quarter and Rochelle 27-18 lead going into halftime.

Nava opened the third quarter knocking down another open look, followed by both senior guards Christina Williams and Marin Meiners putting up points to extend Rochelle’s lead to 15 (33-18).
