HILLSBORO – Outside of two three pointers – one in the second quarter and the other in the fourth – the Lady Eagles were suffocated by the Glen Rose combined junior varsity’s defense. And that is putting it nicely.
Two combined points on two free throws accounted for the extent of the offense the Lady Tigers allowed during the first and third quarters on an evening where they held the Lady Eagles to a 19-percent shooting performance from the field (4-21).
KaShanna Bryant outscored the entire Hillsboro offensive output on her own with a game-high 18 points.
Sonya Garcia added five points and tied Bryant with a team-high four steals. Rachel Buren pulled down four rebounds to go with her three points, while Michaela Johnson, Grace Morris and Jessica Stinson each added two points and Emma rounded out the scoring with one.
The Lady Tigers will return to the road on Friday, Jan. 5 against Brock for a 5 p.m. first tip.
