Big second half lifts Tigers over Rockets

CEDAR GROVE – Howards Grove outscored Cedar Grove- Belgium 31-19 in the second half en route to a 53-42 girls basketball win here Tuesday night.

The Tigers raised their Big East Conference record to 5-1 (8-1 overall). The Rockets fell to 0-6 in the BEC (0-8 overall).

HGHS, which trailed 23-22 at halftime, was sparked on offense in the second half by junior guard Brittany Schaller who hit 10 of her game-high 14 points. Kaitlynn Near and Addi Gerber contributed seven and six, respectively, in the final half. All of Near’s points were in the second half.

The Tigers were without their second-leading scorer, junior forward Sam Yancy, who had a family commitment. Yancy is averaging 15.0 points per game.

“It wasn’t our best performance but we attacked the basket better in the second half,” said Tiger head coach Heidi Georgeff.

“Credit goes to Addi Gerber [junior forward] for playing solid defense against their post players and our whole team for weathering the storm and coming out on top of this one.”

Free-throw shooting was crit- ical as the Tigers outscored the Rockets 17-3.

Schaller and Gerber led HGHS in assists with three each. Olivia Stauss and Ashley Reinemann had a team-high three assists apiece.

Stauss pulled down a teambest eight rebounds, followed by Gerber with seven.
