Triple threat leads Kearney at Miss Basketball
Kearney had three girls score in double figures on their way to an opening win at the Miss Basketball Showcase, 53-46, Thursday against the Kansas All Stars.
Aspen Rusher led the Kearney offense with 14 points, while Alexis Mishou and Lily Novacek were a bucket behind her with 12 each. All three girls scored five field goals with Rusher converting on two more free throw attempts.
Ariyanna Grassity made things difficult for Kearney as she hit five of the nine All Star three pointers, on her way to a game high 19 points. Jaiden Weixelman and Taylayah Thomas both had 11, but they only got a combined five points from their seven other teammates.
Kearney, who is tied with Wyoming Illusion atop Pool A, meet up with the Illusion at 9 a.m. Friday on the north court of the Health and Sports Center.
