H.S. BASKETBALL ROUNDUP: Big second quarter gives Rock Creek win over CAI



• Hornets come from behind to stun Providence: T
railing 24-8 at halftime, Henryville outscored Providence 38-20 in the second half for a stunning 46-44 upset of the Pioneers on Friday.

“In the second half, our girls did an excellent job attacking their zone,” Hornets coach Josh Conrad said of his young squad. “In the first half, we stood around on offense, which created their offense. Our guards changed the game in the second half by attacking areas of the zone and, for the most part, taking balanced shots.

Henryville freshman Emily Hollis led all scorers with 17 points, including both of the Hornets’ 3-pointers. Senior Jasmine Harrell added 10 points and Haley Huddleston scored eight for Henryville, which snapped a six-game losing streak.

“I’m very proud of our effort and intensity in the second half,” Conrad said.

Providence knocked down eight 3-pointers in the contest, led by Meredith Endris and Nichole Tucker, who hit three apiece. Michaela Hoke also made a pair.

Endris led the Pioneers with 13 points.

NEXT: Henryville (4-6) hosts West Washington, Tuesday; Providence (5-4) hosts Christian Academy, Thursday.

• Ricks’ double-double leads Mustangs past Southwestern: On Thursday, Caroline Ricks posted a double-double to lead New Albany past host Southwestern, 69-42.

Ricks had a game-high 18 points and a game-high 16 rebounds. Teammate Kriston Sarver scored 17 points, followed by the Mustangs’ Ashley Johnson with 15 points, a game-high five assists and a game-high two blocked shots. Also for New Wash, Courtney Amick had 10 points and a game-high four steals.

“Fortunately, we are continuing to take steps forward and it’s great to see production from multiple players,” Mustangs’ coach Terry White said. “We weren’t sure how we would react after our previous game [a 53-44 loss to Madison]. But we showed mental toughness and executed those things we needed to be successful.”

NEXT: New Washington (7-2) hosts Eastern, next Thursday.
