Goodwin impresses for Edison girls

Count Mount Vernon girls’ basketball coach Terry Henderson among those impressed with how Edison senior point guard Myisha Goodwin is meshing with her teammates after a sort of getting-to-know-you phase last season for the Eagles.

Edison beat Mount Vernon, 64-50, Wednesday in a game pitting the top two National District contenders.

“Myisha just has so much confidence in them now,” Henderson said. “Credit to her. With her being as smart as she is, she’s definitely making sure her role players are in certain positions where she gives them the ball, they only have to do so much...The bigs, all they have to do is turn and lay it up.”

Goodwin, who has committed to North Carolina State, had 27 points, 8 rebounds and 5 steals against Mount Vernon, her 10th consecutive game with 20 points or more. She turned in one of the game’s highlights with a long no-look pass to sophomore Christine Dua for an easy basket.

“We’re building,” Goodwin said. “It’s exciting. Actually, I think we’re ahead of schedule. I think everyone knows their role on the floor.”

Dua had 10 points and eight rebounds and sophomore Ruth Sherrill added eight points and 10 rebounds. Junior Kierra Graham scored nine points off the bench, all in the second half.

Senior guard Tracy King led Mount Vernon (7-4), the defending district champion, with 18 points and eight rebounds.

The teams meet again Jan. 26 at Mount Vernon. Edison (11-1) has won 11 straight since dropping its season opener to No. 19 Osbourn Park.
