Seniors strike back

Jennings leads Indiana All-Stars past Juniors

(Continued)

But Jennings went to the bench to get a breather and the Juniors made a run, utilizing the size advantage they showed on Monday. A 3-pointer by Alexa Bailey gave the Juniors a 43-42 lead with 10:00 remaining, completing a 14-2 spurt.

The Seniors battled back. Jennings scored on a three-point play and another driving basket to make it 57-49. She forced a five-second violation that led to a three-point play on a putback by Danielle Cuttino to cut the lead to 58-54 with 6:31 left. Jennings found Cuttino open on an inbounds play to tie the game at 62-all with 4:25 left.

It was a 68-68 game when Maura Muensterman drilled a 3 from the top of the key with a minute to go to give the Seniors the lead.

“When she hit that 3 you could tell her confidence level and the whole team’s confidence went up so that was a huge shot,” Jennings said.

Columbus North’s Ali Patberg answered with a 3 with 40 seconds left to tie the game.

Jennings got to the basket but her left-handed scoop was short. Cuttino was there for the rebound and was fouled. She hit the first in the one-and-bonus to give the Seniors a 72-71 lead with 15.1 seconds left.

Lamina Cooper was short on a jumper and Cuttino grabbed the rebound off the rim and was again fouled. She again hit 1 of 2 free throws with 5.6 seconds left to make it 73-71.

Owens blocked Patberg’s 3-point attempt in the closing seconds and Patberg’s desperation putback attempt from 17 feet was off the mark as the final horn sounded.

Owens, a Cincinnati recruit from Lawrence North, added 15 points, five rebounds and five steals in 28 minutes.

Cuttino, a 6-foot-4 Purdue volleyball recruit from Ben Davis, had 12 points and a team-high eight boards and made the game-winning free throw.
