“The aggressiveness in the first half was excellent, and then in the second half we were able to step up and hit shots when we needed to,” he added.

Jasmine Love scored a game-high 20 points to lead the Red and Blue.

“Jasmine hit some big shots in the fourth quarter and was a good leader,” Snyder said.

Kokomo played without its other senior leader, forward Alanis Jones, who suffered an injury against Logansport.

In Jones’ absence, Allie Lowe and Sierra Langley gave Kokomo good play inside. Lowe had 12 points and 10 rebounds and Sierra Langley had 11 rebounds in just 13 minutes.

“Allie played an unbelievable game. Had great intensity,” Snyder said. “Sierra did an excellent job with 11 rebounds playing her first major varsity minutes.”

Harrison dropped to 3-2.

TIPTON 70, EASTERN 39

The Class 2A No. 4-ranked Blue Devils (3-0) built a 26-9 lead through the first eight minutes and upped it to 38-16 by halftime, cruising to victory over the Comets in Greentown.

Senior Kacie Juday led four Tipton players in double figures with 19 points. The Stony Brook recruit added 12 rebounds, seven steals and six assists. Macie Lively added 18 points for the Devils. Morgan Mahaney hit four 3-pointers and finished with 14 points, and Molly Mahaney added a double-double with 12 points and 10 boards.

“We got the pace of play going in our favor early,” Tipton coach Nick Comer said. “Missing Lela [Crawford], I wasn’t sure how we’d defend, but we got the tempo established, and although they took better care of the ball than our first two opponents, we forced them into a 26-percent shooting night from the field. I think that’s a tribute to the pace of play. We got them on their heels. And, although we didn’t turn them over a lot, and we forced them into shots they weren’t comfortable taking.”
