WRV struggles offensively

Monday, December 3, 2012

White River Valley only managed nine field goals as the Lady Wolverines lost for the second time in seven games.

North Knox defeated the visiting Lady Warriors 45-27 in a non-conference high school girls basketball game Monday night at Bicknell.

North Knox, who is ranked No. 17 in Class 2A, improved to 7-1.

"North Knox is a very good team." said WRV coach A.J. Graves. "We came down here and put up a pretty decent effort defensively.

"But we struggled tonight at the offensive end. We only managed to score 27 points. We have to be able to take care of the basketball and get the ball into scoring position and be ready to shoot it, none of which we did tonight. We threw the ball away too many times. North Knox did a good job of pushing us out on the floor and making it tough to run our offense."

Allison Wininger hit two 3-pointers and topped WRV with eight points.

White River Valley won the junior-varsity contest 25-18.

Jasmine Padgett scored two points, Briauna George-Fisher three, Amy Ragle two, Ashley Hooks six, Lexi Graves four, Miranda Pierce two, Lilly Hancock four and Rachel Woods added two.

The Lady Wolverines will host Bloomington North Thursday, starting with the jv at 6 p.m.
