Walnut Springs rolled past Morgan, 47-20, but then had its five-game win streak snapped thanks to a sluggish offensive performance in a 29-23 road loss to Covington in Class A-D2 District 20 girls basketball action last week.
The Lady Hornets, now 22-4 overall and 9-2 in league play, started slow against Morgan, and led by just five at the break. But a 17-5 third period push, followed by a 16-6 fourth quarter run, turned the 14-9 halftime score into a rout.
Courtney Gibbons posted the first of two double-doubles on the week, scoring 11 points to go with 12 rebounds. She also had four steals and four assists.
Mariah Hardin also stepped up in the win, hitting 6-7 from the floor on her way to finishing with 12 points and five boards. Shea Jones also scored 12 and had three steals.
Others contributing for the Lady Hornets were Shadie Shadix with 6 points and 10 rebounds, Shakota Billman with four points and Denver Daughtry with two.
Walnut Springs turned the ball over only nine times in the win, but turned around and gave it away 18 times in the loss to Covington on Friday.
And turnovers were only the beginning of the Lady Hornets' troubles.
Walnut Springs shot a dismal 17.8-percent from the floor, going 10-56 overall, including just 3-18 from beyond the 3-point arc. WSHS also failed to score a single point from the free throw line, where the Lady Hornets were 0-3.
Gibbons had another outstanding performance to keep the game close, going for 19 points, 10 boards, four steals and four blocked shots.
Only two other Lady Hornets scored, however, as Shadix and Billman each had two.
Walnut Springs looked to rebound on Tuesday when the Lady Hornets visited Blum, the only school besides Covington to defeat the Lady Hornets in league play.
WSHS returns to its home court on Friday for a date with Oglesby.
