Braves step up, top Cats


Tribune photo by Zach Spicer/ Brownstown Central sophomore Jaelyn Reynolds drives in for a layup after a steal during Thursday's Mid-Southern Conference home game against North Harrison.


Brooke Ebbing connected on her first 3-pointer of the season Saturday at Brown County.

That apparently gave the Brownstown Central sophomore confidence to take the 3 when she is open because that’s what she did late in Thursday’s Mid-Southern Conference game at home against North Harrison, which the Braves won 50-42.

Kaylee Bennett found Ebbing open on both wings in the final 2:30 of the game, and Ebbing swished the ball through the net both times, giving the Braves leads of 37-36 and 42-38. Brownstown never trailed after the latter one.

“I guess I got my confidence up a little bit,” Ebbing said. “I think we learned how to spread the court out. (Coach Karla Rieckers) told us to keep the court spread out, so we did, and that’s what got us open.”
