Kokomo girls hoops falls to McCutcheon

LAFAYETTE — Kokomo couldn’t hold off McCutcheon as the Mavericks defeated the Wildkats 53-47 at McCutcheon High School Thursday in girls basketball action.

The Wildkats (9-6) were up 35-33 at the end of the third quarter, but a 20-12 run in the fourth by the Mavericks (9-8) changed the outcome of the game.

McCutcheon hit 15 of 17 free throws in the second half, compared to Kokomo’s 4 of 10 from the line.

“The game changer was the free-throw line,” Kokomo coach Snyder said.
