Prep roundup, Dec. 29

Western girls finish third at Twin Lakes basketball tournament.


“Savannah Delgado was our representative on the all-tourney team,” Bentlzer said. “She had a phenomenal tournament. Not only [did she score a career-best 13], she had several steals. Savannah’s figured this thing out.”


Northwestern beat Bellmont 54-38 in the opening round, then fell to the host Hot Dogs 56-46 in the championship.

In the opening round, Northwestern led 15-10 after the opening quarter, 29-21 at halftime and 46-33 after three quarters. Sydney Zeck exploded for 26 points to lead the Tigers. She knocked down 6 of 8 attempts from 3-point range. Brooke Treadway was strong inside with 14 points and seven rebounds. Beza Townsend also had seven rebounds.

In the championship, Northwestern and Frankfort battled back and forth. The Hot Dogs led 16-6 after the opening quarter, but the Tigers controlled play in the second quarter and trailed by just one, 28-27, at halftime. The Tigers led 35-34 after three quarters, but the Hot Dogs regained control down the stretch.

Treadway led the Tigers with a double-double of 16 points and 16 rebounds. Sophia Beachy had 11 points and Olivia McClure had 10 points.

“Sydney Zeck had a great first game. She had over 20 points in the first half and really took over the game offensively. She was definitely a difference maker in the morning game,” Northwestern coach Kathie Layden said. “Brooke Treadway continues to be a consistent force inside for us averaging a double double. She was slowed with foul trouble in both games [Saturday] and still had double-digit scoring. The game with Frankfort was a game of runs and we unfortunately were on the short end of the final run.

“Olivia McClure did a good job [Saturday] of handling the ball and getting us into offensive. She is showing the leadership that we need to be successful for the second half of the season.”
