CROTHERSVILLE

Trailing by 15 at halftime of Saturday’s game, Crothersville’s girls basketball team made some shots in the second half and appeared it was going to break past that double-digit deficit.

South Central’s Kelsey Miller, however, made sure that didn’t happen by knocking down a 3-pointer each time Crothersville pulled close. Miller made four 3-pointers in the second half to lift her team to a 56-36 Southern Athletic Conference victory.

“They lose track of where that good shooter is,” Tigers coach Kevin Hensley said. “We were trying to cover Miller because we knew she was a good shooter, and she got open there several times in that corner, and we just weren’t getting out there on her.”

South Central opened the game with a pair of 3-pointers, including one by Miller, and the Rebels led 15-5 after eight minutes. They then opened the second quarter on a 7-0 run.

After turning the ball over nine times in the first quarter, Crothersville settled down midway through the second quarter, and the Tigers trailed 30-15 at halftime.
