But when junior Anna Morris dished the ball off to senior’Eliya’Herriott for an easy score on Thursday, it showed the type of unity that has Immaculate Heart (8-0), No. 20 in the NJ.com Top 20, off to such a strong start.

“We discuss the importance of hunting for good shots and that’s been our mantra this year,” said Immaculate Heart coach’Steve Silver. “We want to pass up something good for something better. We set the tone early today and Anna Morris right off the bat had a decent shot she could have taken, but she sent a bounce pass to’Eliya and she laid it in.

Smudge makes her mark: Franklinville’s Haskell shooting up WNY’s all-time scoring list

That’s the family nickname for Franklinville junior Dani Haskell, the 5-foot-7 sharpshooter who rose to 17th on the career list with 1,884 points after scoring 35 in the Panthers’ season-opening loss at Sacred Heart.

‘When she was born, her grandpa thought she had a big head,’ Dani’s father, Jeff Haskell, recalled. ‘He said she looked like a smudge. And that stuck with some of us.’

* * *

‘From my dad and people who know me through my dad, I really like it,’ she said ‘It’s weird if he doesn’t call me Smudge.’

It also reminds her of her late grandfather Rick Hughes, a passionate supporter of Franklinville basketball. His daughters Laura, Debbie and Dani’s mother Jill were all standout players, along with grandchildren Sam Kopp and Ally Haskell.
