Logan hammers Huntington for 18th straight NCC win

Logan hammers Huntington for 18th straight NCC win

HUNTINGTON — Logansport’s girls basketball team put it all together in an impressive win at Huntington North Saturday.

The 13th-ranked Lady Berries recorded a 78-44 win on the road for their 18th straight North Central Conference victory.

“We played like the vision I have in my head of how we’re supposed to play,” Logan coach Jerry Hoover said.

Whitney Jennings said after Friday’s senior night win over Twin Lakes that she was looking for redemption after an off shooting night. She had that an then some, as she was super, scintillating and sensational in recording 36 points, 12 assists, nine rebounds, four blocks and three steals. She was 17 of 27 from the field (63 percent).

“The ringleader is Whitney,” Hoover said. “She controlled the tempo of the game both offensively and defensively.”

Not only did Jennings have a big game, the rest of her teammates did as well. In fact it may have been the best the Berries have played all season, though the highest quality win remains Anderson on Dec. 21.

Nakeya Penny just missed a double-double with 20 points and nine boards, and she added three steals and was 8 of 12 from the field. Sydney Bullard was also in double figures with 12 points and added six rebounds, two steals and two blocks. Maddie Dalton had six points on 2 of 5 shooting from 3. Kennedy Curl also knocked down a triple and finished with four points and added three steals. Sam Kain chipped in four rebounds.

“It was good that we got a third scorer in there that Syd got 12,” Hoover said. “Whitney and Nakeya, they’re always going to get theirs or you would think that nine out of 10 nights they’re going to get theirs, but with Syd coming in and I thought Kennedy Curl and Dalton played very well. Everybody played well. There wasn’t anybody that was in the game that did not play well and play what we refer to as Lady Berry Basketball.”
