LATE WEDNESDAY

DRAGONS DOWN ALICES FOR TITLE 

VINCENNES — Class 3A No. 3 Silver Creek rolled to a 65-45 win over the host Alices in the championship game of the Vincennes Lincoln Holiday Tournament on Wednesday night. 

Senior standout Kynidi Mason-Striverson led the way, compiling 29 points, eight rebounds, six assists and one steal. 

Fellow senior Emme Rooney added 13 points for the Dragons, who led 21-12 at the end of the first quarter and 42-24 at halftime. 

Senior Merideth Wilkinson added nine points, six rebounds and two steals while Sydney Sierota recorded seven points, five assists and five steals. 

"Defensively it was one of our better games," Silver Creek coach Scott Schoen said. "Lincoln drives the ball as good as any team and I thought the girls sat down and guarded the drive. Kynidi was great all day scoring and distributing the ball. Emme shot the ball extremely well. ... Sydney harassed their point guard and attacked the rim. (Lacey) Tingle reminds me of Stacey Augmon — an old-school reference. She does a little of everything. Merideth decided to go be aggressive. When we guard, and then shoot the ball well, it's fun to watch." 

The Dragons (15-1) next host Salem on Jan. 8 in a big Mid-Southern Conference clash.
