Seniors strike back

Jennings leads Indiana All-Stars past Juniors

COLUMBUS — Miss Basketball Whitney Jennings said her Indiana All-Stars team had to regroup following a 21-point loss to the Juniors earlier in the week.

“We were pretty disappointed after the loss but our coaches just told us that we had to keep our heads about it and we’ve just got to fight back,” she said.

The Seniors struck back with a 73-71 win over the Juniors Wednesday at Columbus North High School.

Jennings led the Seniors with 17 points and three assists in the win. She was 6 of 12 from the field, 1 of 2 from 3-point range and 4 of 5 from the foul line. She added three rebounds, a block and a steal in 31 minutes.

She said the improved effort started on the defensive end of the floor for her team.

“Yesterday in practice we just really worked on pressuring the ball on defense and being a lot more aggressive on defense, just being really energized there which led to our offense,” she said. “I think having a game under our belt and having already played a game together as a team, having another day of practice, we just felt more comfortable out there and played together well.”

The Juniors, who won 82-61 Monday in the Berry Bowl, jumped out to a 7-0 lead in the first 3:30 of the contest.

The Seniors responded with a run. Jennings started getting to the basket and scored five straight points and gave them their first lead of the game at 16-15 with 9:19 left in the first half.

A Jennings driving basket gave the Seniors a 25-19 lead, and her 3-pointer off a steal and assist by Ana Owens gave them a 30-19 lead with 4:05 left in the half. They held a 33-28 at halftime.

Jennings had a highlight-reel, behind-the-back crossover pullup in the lane to give the Seniors a 40-39 lead with a 16:15 remaining. A Lauren Whitlatch basket one minute later on an assist by Maura Muensterman made it 42-39.
