GIRLS' BASKETBALL ROUNDUP: Borden opens with SAC win over Crothersville, 60-37

Pioneers stay unbeaten, 66-32 over Shawe

FLOYDS KNOBS —  Borden sophomore Natalie Ruedinger scored 24 points to lead the Braves to a 60-37 Southern Athletic Conference victory at Crothersville on Tuesday night. It was Borden’s season opener.

Ruedinger came off the bench as a freshman and stepped into the starting role when Leslie Beatty graduated.

“She did a good job of getting the ball in the lane and to the basket,” Borden coach Terry Rademacher said. “She’s capable of doing that frequently.”

Carson Casey added 16 points, Abby Ellis had eight and Kristen Nestor and Sarah Hurst scored four apiece for Borden, which is coming off a 13-7 campaign and its third straight winning season.

“We were happy to get out and play and see some things we’ve been working on,” Rademacher said. “It gives us an idea of what we need to go after.”

Katrina Christian led Crothersville (3-2, 1-0 SAC) with 14 points. Alexis Adair had nine points on three 3-pointers for the Tigers.
