Linton-Stockton had an early lead, but North Knox controlled the last three quarters as the visiting Lady Warriors came away with a 48-24 victory in a high school girls basketball game in Greene County Thursday night.

The Lady Miners dropped to 0-2.

"We actually led 8-0," said Lady Miner coach Brad McKinney. "The girls were ready to play and they did what they needed to do early.

"North Knox led 13-10 at the end of the first quarter. In the second and third quarters, they really sped the game up. They were pushing the ball up the floor and that is not where we need to be. They have size and are a good team. They are physical. They threw sheer numbers at us and I think they wore us down as the game went on."

Carlie Booe hit three 3-pointers and scored 11 points for the Lady Miners.

North Knox also won the junior varsity game.

Linton-Stockton will play Thursday, Nov. 15 at North Daviess in its conference opener.
