Myah Lewis ready to be key contributor for Baldwin basketball

BALDWIN —  Baldwin’s girls basketball team will be focusing on speed and discipline to win ballgames this season and sophomore guard Myah Lewis hopes to play a key factor in that assignment.

Lewis said “attitude and my athleticism” are traits she’s looking to use to spark the Baldwin attack. She indicated she’s improved from last year.

“I’m not great, but I’ve improved in all my parts,” she said, adding that when she’s on the court, the team is looking for her to “hustle, steal the ball and pressure.”

Lewis is looking to help Baldwin with its pressure defense throughout the season. She said she’ll use her quickness, including her quick hands, to help the Panthers make key plays on offense and defense.

Lewis was a freshman for the Panthers last season.

“I feel more comfortable,” she said.

Baldwin is 0-2 and plays Friday night at Brethren.

“We have to play good defense,” she said. “We’ve made lots of progress. We’re hustling better.”

Lewis said she’s looking to improve her shot and not succumb to pressure.
