Kings motor to finish

Late run pushes Cass girls past Taylor

(Continued)

MARION 60, KOKOMO 39

Shooting woes and foul trouble spelled doom for the Lady Kats, who fell to 4-4 on the year and 1-2 in North Central Conference play after the loss at Bill Green Athletic Arena.

Kokomo foul trouble helped Marion post players Deja Cyrus and Julia Cardwell feast inside in the first half as the Giants (5-5, 1-1 NCC) built a 31-20 lead by intermission.

The Kats then struggled from the field in the second half, connection on 5 of 27 from the floor in the fial 16 minutes. Kokomo was 1 of 19 from 3-point range for the game.

Alanis Jones led the Kats with 15 points, while Jasmine Love added 11 points and seven rebounds.

Cardwell paced the Giants with 19 points and 10 rebounds, Cyrus added 17 points and nine rebounds, and Vironnica Drake chipped in with nine points and 10 boards. Marion outrebounded Kokomo 47-37.

“It’s Christmas break now and we have a little time off,” Kokomo coach Jason Snyder said, “so, we’re going to go back and look at some things we need to do to make ourselves better. We’ve challenged the girls to continue to work to improve their game individually, and we need to play better as a unit.”

EASTERN 54, MACONAQUAH 34

A strong first half offensively helped Eastern (3-7, 1-2 Mid-Indiana Conference) build a 35-24 lead by the half, before the Comets tightened down defensively, holding the Braves to 10 points in the second half en route to the 20-point victory in Greentown.

Ally Oyler and Jessie Sprinkles each scored 15 points to lead the Comets, while Taylor Holliday added 11 and Emily Richards finished with nine.

“I know it’s a lot better to win than it is to lose going into the break, and we don’t play again until Jan. 3,” Eastern coach Justin Coomer said. “We have a little streak going here with two wins in a row, and hopefully we’re building some positive momentum going into the second half of the season.”
