Lady Beavers have tough time in Classic




SCOTT CITY — The best thing about the weekend for the Scott City girls basketball team might be that it's over.

The Lady Beavers struggled again with turnovers in a 58-37 loss Saturday to the Wichita Trinity Lady Knights in the final game of the Clarion Inn Southwest Classic.

Janessa Lowenthal had 20 points and 11 rebounds for the Beavers, and was effective down low. The trick was getting the ball inside to her.

The Beavers had a 12-9 lead going into the second quarter, and led 14-11 on a baseline bucket by Bailey Nickel, who finished with five points and 13 rebounds.

From there, the Knights went on an 11-0 run, sparked by four points from Ashley Burns.

Caroline Zielke and Kristin Miller led Trinity with 11 points apiece. Miller was constantly open in the paint, and the Knights used good ball movement to find her for open feeds. Shiloh Miller and Kelli Henderson added 10 apiece.

Shanaya Hoeme had six points, while Kelly Wycoff and Nickel added five.

The Lady Beavers will host Ulysses Friday night.
