REEDSVILLE – The Howards Grove Tigers outscored Reedsville 44-14 in the second half to pave the way for a 64- 29 rout in Big East Conference girls basketball play here Friday night.

Yancy picked up two quick fouls and sat most of the half, so we have to adjust without her in the game and we are a different team. We shot only 33 percent in the first half and we had nine turnovers,” said Tiger head coach Heidi Georgeff.

“We came out much better in the second half and got some inside scoring going, so that opened things up. Scoring 44 points in a half is a lot for us but I thought it was a very good offensive half in terms of doing different things – inside, outside and attacking the basket.

“Gerber chipped in 11 rebounds which was huge as Reedsville is such a good rebounding team. I thought Ashley Reinemann played very well offensively to go with her always strong defense,” said Georgeff.

“Olivia scored 11 points and was a nice spark off the bench. Near was tasked with guarding Faith Lubner who is a tough match-up for anyone with her jumping ability and athleticism, and I thought she did excellent. It was a total team effort.”
