Colorado Hawks Michaela Onyenwere tallies 43 and 29 in Sweet 16 loss

@ColoradoHawks Michaela Onyenwere scored 43 points and grabbed 29 rebounds (20 offensive) in a tough loss to Lakewood in the Sweet 16 of the Colorado HS State Tournament.  A few quotes about her performance:

“Despite an enormous effort by Grandview sophomore Michaela Onyenwere (43 points and a few dozen rebounds) in the Sweet 16 game at Lakewood High School, the Tigers took an 86-83 victory.”

“You can’t stop her (Onyenwere). She is amazing,” Lakewood coach Chris Poisson said. “We were hoping to contain her a little, but that didn’t happen.”

“The Tigers (20-5 overall) built a 17-point lead with five minutes to play in the fourth quarter. However, led by Onyenwere’s 18-point final quarter, the Wolves (20-5) actually took an 81-80 lead with 1:10 left.”
