No. 1 Lady Lions defeat defending state champs

FORTVILLE - The Rushville Lady Lions wanted nothing more than to get their revenge after last season’s semi-state loss to the Mt. Vernon Lady Marauders, and they succeeded with a statement. The Lady Lions defeated Mt. Vernon 65-43 on the Lady Marauders’ home floor.

“I thought we played a very solid game for 32 minutes. We executed offensively and got the ball to the basket and really crashed the offensive boards,” Coach Melissa Marlow said. “The girls did a great job of executing the defensive game plan. We got great contribution off the bench. It was a total team effort.”

Just under a minute into the game Rushville’s Keragan Niehoff scored the first basket to give the Lady Lions a lead from the start. Niehoff then hit a free throw, but Mt. Vernon’s Shaely Duff quickly responded with their first basket to cut the game to 3-2 with 5:25 left in the first.

Rushville’s Kelsi Ash then responded with a bucket to increase the Lady Lion lead to 5-2. From that point, Rushville’s Makayla Herbert hit a put back bunny, and the Lady Lions outscored the Lady Marauders 8-4 to give Rushville a 13-6 lead going into the second quarter.

Rushville’s Sarah Cook started the second quarter with a deep three to extend the Lady Lion lead to 10. Mt. Vernon’s Sydney Shelton responded with a matching three the next trip down the court. Rushville’s Kelsey Ash then hit 2-for-2 from the charity stripe.

The Lady Lions got a defensive stop and Rushville’s Mackenzie Campbell dished to Cook for a two point basket to gain another double digit lead for the Lady Lions 20-9. Mt. Vernon’s Sydney Shelton then responded with another deep three. The Lady Lions closed the quarter with a 15-5 run, taking a 35-17 lead going into the half.
