The Kirksville Lady Knights stormed past Sunnydale using stiff man-to-man defense and an impressive press. Sunnydale took possession of the opening tip-off but it was all down hill for the Lady Spartans from there.
Danika Askew, Maggie Belzer, Joy Tilinski, and Cambre Britt contributed to a smothering press that forced Sunnydale into numerous turnovers and miscues. Lindsay Howd dominated the boards and helped limit the visitors to one shot per possession normally.
The Lady Knights were led in scoring by Danika Askew with 14 points and Joy Tilinski’s 7. Maggie Belzer and Lindsay Howd added 4 points each while Cambre Britt, Naomi Rider, Chalee Britt, and Bethany Fountain each added 2 each.
The Knights will play at Quincy Friday night.
