“Having her in there she’s so tall, really lanky, she alters a lot of shots on defense. She stepped up big at the end and hit a couple free throws and rebounded,” Jennings said.
Destiny Washington was also in double figures for the Seniors with 10 points.
Pike’s Brittany Ward led the Juniors with 15 points. Patberg had 14 and Jenna Allen added 10 points and 12 boards.
The Seniors shot just 35.3 percent from the field but held the Juniors to 28.4 percent and forced 23 turnovers.
Logan coach Jerry Hoover noted that Logansport’s Junior All-Star, Nakeya Penny, did not play in the game after making some big plays in the Juniors win on Monday. He added that Seniors coach Eric Thornton of Norwell made some adjustments.
“The Seniors played much better than they did Monday in Logansport. The defense when they contained Whitney will only work so long with good players. So the coach put in a couple of wrinkles there,” Hoover said. “He played Owens more. Whitney and Owens together on defense are pretty dang good. Then the girl from Ben Davis [Cuttino] had a very good game on the boards, around the basket. I thought that was really the big difference. Whitney and Owens played together defensively and it really helped. They forced some turnovers and got the game going a little faster.”
In the boys game the Seniors once again rolled to a win over the Juniors, 124-102. Park Tudor’s Trevon Blueitt (Xavier) had 44 points and 12 rebounds, and Marion’s James Blackmon Jr. (Indiana) added 28 points to lead the Seniors.
