Lady Wolverines win game at South Knox

Tuesday, January 15, 2013

White River Valley snapped a three-game losing streak with a 51-50 victory at South Knox Tuesday night.

The Lady Wolverines improved to 10-6 while South Knox dropped to 5-9.

"This has been a couple of weeks in the making," said WRV coach A.J. Graves. "We have had a stretch of tough games against bigger schools.

"Tonight we were able to minimize our mistakes and make enough plays on the offensive and defensive ends to get the win."

South Knox, who won 47-23 at Switz City last year, led by as many as 11 points in the second half.

"They led most of the game by five or six points, as by as many as 11," said Graves. "At every dead ball, I told the girls to keep chipping away.

"To their credit, they stayed positive and got key stops and made key baskets. It was good to get back to our winning ways."

Lexi Graves led the winners with 19 points as she knocked down four 3-pointers.

Allison Wininger added nine.

In the junior varsity game, WRV lost 21-17.

Briauna George-Fisher scored one point, Brittani George-Fisher five, Ashley Hooks seven and Jasmine Padgett added four. Amy Ragle, Lexi Graves, Lilly Hancock, Rachel Woods and Shannon Pittman also played.

White River Valley will host North Daviess in a key Southwestern Indiana Athletic Conference battle, starting with the junior varsity game at 1 p.m. Saturday
