Law shows off unlimited shooting range

Alex Law claims she doesn't pay attention to where she is on the floor when she fires up 3-pointers.

On Friday evening, the fans at Mona Shores High School certainly took notice.

Law knocked down four 3-pointers on Friday, including two of them from deep behind the 3-point line, as the Buccaneers scored a 30-point victory over the Sailors to win the Class A district championship.

The second long-range bomb prompted the public address announcer to call out, “Alex Law hits that one from the parking lot!”

Law doesn’t even notice.

“I just shoot when I’m open,” she said with a grin.

Law’s success comes as no surprise to Nicole Scanlan Tiefenbach, who coached Law as both a fifth grader and again in eighth grade.

“Absolute dedication,” Scanlan Tiefenbach said. “She’s got the drive.”

The Sailors saw the result of that drive and dedication first-hand. Each time Mona Shores tried to claw away at Grand Haven’s lead, Law demoralized the Sailors with another dagger 3-pointer from well beyond the range of Mona Shores’ defense. 

“It doesn’t stun us anymore because we see it every day in practice the last four years,” said Buccaneers’ coach Katie Kowalczyk-Fulmer. “You give her an open look and it doesn’t matter if she’s 3-4 steps beyond the 3-point line. She has the green light.

“She’s the best pure shooter I’ve ever coached.”

Law, who earlier this year eclipsed the 1,000-point mark, said she and her teammates will do whatever it takes to continue winning.

“”We just have to keep playing like we’re playing,” she said following the Bucs’ district championship win. “This is just the first step. We’ve got a lot more to go.”
