H.S. ROUNDUP: Casey’s clutch shot lifts Borden girls past Rebels

Jones scores 34 in Clarksville rout; New Wash upsets Austin

> SOUTHERN INDIANA — With Borden trailing South Central 51-50 with just seven seconds on the clock, Carson Casey took the most important 15-foot jump shot of her career.

With the game on the line, Casey knocked down a clutch game-winning shot to give the Braves a 52-51 victory.

The triumph sets up a battle of Southern Athletic Conference unbeatens when Borden (14-2, 4-0 SAC) host Henryville (10-8, 4-0) on Monday for the outright conference title.

“It was a good come-from-behind win for us,” Brave coach Terry Rademacher said.

Borden entered the fourth quarter trailing South Central by five, but quickly changed that by scoring the first six points of the period.

After a back-and-forth final six minutes, Borden again found itself down and in need of a big-time basket. Casey delivered the clutch basket and then Borden’s defense was able to force a South Central desperation shot at the buzzer.

Natalie Ruedinger lead the Braves with 22 points and Abby Ellis finished with 13. Casey had six points.

South Central (6-13, 1-2) was led by Kelsey Miller’s game-high 26 points.
