Jennings, Penny power Berries to 2-0 start

Logansport hosts Kokomo to open NCC play Saturday.

Logansport’s girls basketball team has been one of the top Class 4A programs in the state in recent years, so the Berries have had their fair share of lopsided wins.

The No.-5 ranked Berries were back at it again Wednesday night with a 91-23 demolishing of Maconaquah at the Berry Bowl.

Whitney Jennings messed around and got a triple-double of 30 points, 13 assists and 11 steals for the Berries (2-0). She finished just three rebounds shy of the second quadruple-double of her career.

Nakeya Penny added 27 points, six rebounds and five steals. Both Penny and Jennings played just 25 minutes in the contest. When they left the Berries had built an 81-12 lead with just under seven minutes left in the contest.

For Penny it was a bounce-back game after scoring just six points in the Berries’ 25-point win over McCutcheon in the season opener.

“With the foul trouble on Friday she could just never get into a rhythm,” Jennings said. “I was happy to see her back to her normal self and scoring and doing what she does.”

The Berries led 29-4 after one quarter, 57-7 at halftime and 77-10 after three.

Katrina Neuendorf added nine points and was 2 of 2 from 3-point range with four rebounds and a steal in just 14 minutes.

“Neuendorf continues to play very good defense,” LHS coach Jerry Hoover said. “She’s going to make a nice defensive basketball player for somebody at the next level. She’s a spot up 3-shooter and a decent passer and decent dribbler and she’ll just get better. But her defense, she made a couple on the ball defensive moves tonight that were pretty dang good.”

Karli Armstrong had eight points and three assists.

“Armstrong played very well tonight,” Hoover added.

Kaddi Winter added six points, and Kennedy Curl had four points, five rebounds and three steals. Maddie Dalton and Sam Kain chipped in three points apiece for a Berries squad that forced 29 Maconaquah turnovers.
