End of an era

Logansport falls at semistate in Jennings' final game


Crown Point’s gym was jam-packed with Berry fans — at least 3,000 in the 4,000-seat arena.

“Our crowd was amazing,” Jennings said. “They are what kept us in the game.”

The Berries continued the run in the fourth quarter and a Penny block led to a Jennings three-point play that gave them a 33-27 lead with 7:08 left in the game, completing a 13-0 run.

“We were feeling it, I think,” Jennings said.

Two Jennings free throws with 5:31 left gave the Berries a 35-29 lead.

The Berries then ran into trouble with free-throw shooting in the final 4:19, making just 2 of 8 down the stretch.

Jennings made 2 of 3 during that time and 7 of 8 for the game but her teammates missed on five straight attempts down the stretch.

Meanwhile Penn kept clawing back and making its free throws — the Kingsmen made 9 of 12 in the final 4:39 other than two misses with just one second left on the clock.

Logan took a 36-31 on a Jennings free throw with 3:47 left. Penn’s Jessica Alexander then scored on a drive and then a putback to cut the lead to one, and a driving basket by Kaitlyn Marenyl gave the Kingsmen their first lead of the fourth quarter with 1:45 remaining.

The Berries continued their struggles at the line, and Jennings was called for charging while trying to score in transition with 1:19 left when the Berries trailed by two.

A Jennings pullup jumper cut the lead to 40-38 with 40 seconds left. Alexander answered with two free throws to push the lead back up to four, but Jennings scored a three-point play with 22.5 seconds left to cut it to 42-41.

Kamra Solomon hit a pair of free throws to push Penn’s lead up to three. Jennings got a good look from 3 from the left wing with 15 seconds to go but the shot was off. Jennings and Penny both had four fouls so they wanted to avoid a fifth, and it took the Berries until one second was left to foul. Alexander missed both attempts but Logan was unable to come up with a clean rebound for a last-second desperation try.
