Second-quarter surge leads to another SCA win

A big second quarter kept the HHS Lady Tigers unbeaten in conference play.

The Lady Tigers outscored Ava 22-7 in the second quarter last Thursday night to turn a one-point deficit into a double-digit lead. HHS cruised to a 52-40 road victory.

Senior Abby Casper scored a game-high 19 points as the Lady Tigers 3-0 in the South Central Association. Jaydin Ramsey added 10 points on her 18th birthday.

Houston was behind 11-10 after the opening eight minutes. But that deficit quickly turned into an advantage. Six different players scored in the second quarter – led by a pair of Chloe Hunninghake 3-pointers – as the Lady Tigers led 32-18 at the break.

On Monday, Casper led three players in double figures with 24 points as the Houston Lady Tigers beat Cabool 55-42 Monday night in the Thayer Winter Classic.

Ramsey added 12 points and Kaitlyn Root had 11 for the Lady Tigers, who won their third straight game. Houston (7-6) also climbed over the .500 mark for the first time this season.

HHS played Willow Springs on Tuesday night in the tournament.


Carly Crawford scored seven points and Ally Morgan had six before fouling out in the JV Lady Tigers’ 34-24 loss Thursday night at Ava.
