Hornets run past Tigers in county rivalry game


Coach Brad McCammon wanted his Medora girls basketball team to take advantage of its quickness during Tuesday night’s Jackson County matchup at Crothersville.

The Hornets did that by getting their running game going from the start. They scored the first six points of the game, increased their lead to 17-6 at the end of the first quarter and went home with a 58-32 victory.

“We want to get out and run the ball as much as we can and make a full-court game of it because we knew with (Crothersville’s) Kendyl (Lewis) and some of them, if they made it a half-court game, they could hurt us. She’s pretty tough in there, and she hurt us a little bit in the second quarter (with two baskets),” McCammon said.

“We tried to push the ball and get open looks, and I told the girls we wanted to make a track meet out of it if we could. I knew we had the speed, and when you’ve got guards like we’ve got, you can get the ball out, but you’ve got to rebound first, and you’ve got to play defense, and we were able to do that tonight.”
