Berries bounce Mavs

Fast start helps Logan win sectional opener


Nakeya Penny answered with back-to-back 3s for the Berries and scored eight straight points to close the half to give the Berries a 32-23 lead at the break.

A Penny basket gave the Berries a 45-32 lead late in the third quarter. But they couldn’t put the Mavs away, as Katee Kurtz and Spitnaliak hit back-to-back 3s to close the quarter to make it 45-38 entering the fourth.

A Jennings basket in transition gave Logan a 50-43 lead with 4:40 left to play. Lowery answered with a long 3 to make it four-point game.

Sydney Bullard scored on an assist by Jennings to make it 53-46 with 2:40 left.

The Berries missed a couple front ends of one-and-ones to leave the door open, and a Spitnaliak jumper cut the lead to 53-49 with 1:30 remaining.

Jennings knocked down a pair in the one-and-bonus and seconds later hit two more free throws to push the lead up to 57-49 with 1:10 left. Following a Penny free throw, Jennings scored on a steal and layup with 20 seconds left for the final margin of victory. Jennings had two steals and a block in the final two minutes, and McCutcheon misfired on a pair of free throws and a 3-point attempt.

Jennings finished with 30 points, 10 assists, eight rebounds and five steals in the win. Penny had 22 points and five rebounds. Kennedy Curl had six points and six boards. Bullard had 12 rebounds to go with her big basket late.

“Syd, her rebounding was great,” Jennings said. “That’s what she does for this team. So we just need her to keep rebounding like she does.”

Added Hoover, “I thought Nakeya Penny really played well tonight. She didn’t shoot well from the free throw line (1 of 5) but she made some nice shots. She’s starting to become more aggressive. She’s more aggressive on the defensive boards and more aggressive driving to the basket. She played very well.
