HNHS girls no match for Lady Berries in 78-44 loss
Sunday, February 2, 2014 11:29 AM
The Huntington North High School girls' varsity basketball team couldn't crack visiting Logansport's defense, nor contain Miss Basketball candidate Whitney Jennings on offense in a 78-44 loss on Saturday, Feb. 1.
The Lady Vikings were limited to 25.8 percent shooting on a 16 for 62 effort. They trailed 18-8 after the first quarter and were down 37-20 by halftime. The Lady Berries outscored the hosts 21-6 in the third frame before knocking down 20 more points in the final period to hang Huntington North with its ninth loss against five wins.
Jennings, a University of Iowa signee, scorched the nets for 36 points on 17 of 27 shooting from the field. The senior made it a double-double with 10 rebounds and also doled out seven assists.
Sophomore Madi Canady was the lone Lady Vike to reach double figures, netting 14 points.
Coach BreAnne Dyer's squad managed a 90 percent shooting mark at the free throw line with a 9 for 10 showing, but converted only 3 of 20 attempts from three-point range to compound its shooting woes overall.
Nakeya Pulley and Sydney Bullard supplemented Jennings' offensive effort with 20 and 12 points, respectively.
Logansport shot 33 for 60 for 55 percent and 7 for 13 from the stripe for 53.8 percent.
Seniors Paige Coolman and Maddie Klender corralled nine rebounds apiece to give Huntington North a 40-36 edge on the boards. Senior Lindsey Foster handed out a team-high four assists.
The Lady Vikings won the junior varsity game, 30-22, behind a balanced offensive attack that saw seven players score three points or more.
