SHADY SPRING — PikeView's Madison May didn't just play a good game Wednesday night against Shady Spring.
It was the performance of her lifetime.
So far.
May, a 5-foot-11 senior guard — the definition of a matchup nightmare for opposing defenses — scored a school record 45 points while doing everything else except selling popcorn in an 85-35 victory at Shady Spring High School
"It's probably the best game I've had," May said. She made 10 steals, most for baskets, and had nine rebounds and four assists.
"We are so proud of Madison. Tonight was her night to break the record," coach Karen Miller said. "She wanted to do something special and she was able to do it.
"She can play any position, and she can play defense. She's a complete player."
May scored 30 points in the first half alone as PikeView (3-2) rolled to a 58-20 advantage. For the game she was 18 of 28 from the floor, including 1 of 2 from the 3-point arc.
Her quickness and length on defense, and her speed at racing down the court were just too much for the 2-4 Tigers.
May estimated she's averaging 30 points a game for the Lady Panthers. Surprisingly, she wasn't a huge scorer her previous three seasons.
PikeView had three veteran seniors, Courtney White, Lyndsay Hatfield and Lauryn Hatfield, who had led their school to several state tournament appearances in basketball, soccer and volleyball.
"I had a lot of help last year. We had five girls who could score as many as I could," May said. "Of course I wish I'd scored more, but this is my senior year and it feels pretty good."
The Lady Panthers are playing two freshmen and a newcomer who transferred in. May has team leader duties as well.
"The last two years Madison didn't have to score a lot. She wants this team to do well," Miller said.
Most teams use anyone 5-9 or better on the inside. And while May is very capable of posting up, she's happier outside.
"I started out as a point guard when I was little. I just grew," she said. "What I like is playing the 3 (wing/small forward), but I need to shoot outside better."
She obviously has the defensive part down.
"Defense is what wins games. It gets you lay-ups," May said. "Defense is for sure what's most important."
But while May controlled the passing lanes, the other PikeView players didn't just stand around. Freshman guard Ashley Scott had eight steals, along with 15 points and four assists.
"Our goal is to keep getting better," Miller said. "They're starting to see each other now."
PikeView will play at Mount View on Friday.
Shady Spring was led by 10 points apiece from Morgan Brown and Abby Gwinn and nine from Ashley Harding. Keyra Chitwood added eight rebounds.
The Lady Tigers will play at Class AA No. 2 Wyoming East on Monday.
