Marta Sniezek and National Cathedral fend off C.H. Flowers

Daniel Gallen,, December 13, 2014

With National Cathedral leading by three in the final seconds, a C.H.Flowers player drove across half court and started to put up a game-tying shot attempt. But Marta Sniezek stuck out her hand and deflected a shot, preserving the No. 16 Eagles’ 56-53 win over No. 9 C.H. Flowers at the Tina Thompson She Got Game Classic at St. John’s.
“I’ll probably give her some time,” Sniezek said with a laugh after the game. “I’d never seen their team play, so I didn’t know what to expect. I know she’s a phenomenal player, so I knew we had to watch for that, but I didn’t know anybody else on the team, so we were kind of going in blindly. So for us to pull out a win against one of the top teams is incredible for us and for our school.”
Sniezek, a Stanford signee who elected to pass on the National Soccer Coaches Association of America High School All-American Game to play in Saturday’s contest, scored a game-high 31 points and dazzled with an array of no-look passes as she sliced through the Jaguars’ defense to the basket. In the second half, she drew contact inside time after time and made 17 of 23 free throws on the day.
Sniezek frequently drew double-teams from C.H. Flowers.
“Marta’s a great player,  National Cathedral Coach Brittany Mitch said.
