Jennings scores 13 for Juniors in loss to Indiana All-Stars

SULLIVAN — Led by the McDonald’s National Player of the Year, Taya Reimer, and the Indianapolis Star Miss Basketball, Stephanie Mavunga, the girls Indiana All-Star team powered past the Juniors 84-65 Monday at Sullivan High School.

Logansport’s Whitney Jennings had another good outing for the Juniors, highlighted by a couple sensational finishes at the basket. The 5-foot-5 point guard finished with 13 points, three assists and zero turnovers while forcing four turnovers at the defensive end in 27 minutes.

The Juniors cruised to double-digit wins over Kentucky on Friday and Saturday but ran into a different challenge against the Seniors.

“Their starting lineup has four girls 6-foot or over,” Jennings said. “So they’re very good, very big. It’s quite the challenge for us.”

Jennings hit a runner off the glass with 2 seconds left in the first half to bring the Juniors to within 41-34 at halftime.

A fantastic finish at the bucket by Jennings pulled the Juniors to within 61-56 with 9:05 remaining.

The Juniors were within 72-65 after an Erica Moore basket in the post with four minutes left before the Seniors ended the game with a 12-0 run.

“I thought our whole team played well. We were right with them,” Jennings said. “They had to bring back their starting five in the last three minutes when we got it down to seven there. I don’t think the final score indicates how well we played against them.”

Reimer, of Hamilton Southeastern, had 22 points and seven rebounds to lead the Seniors, and Mavunga, of Brownsburg, posted 13 points and eight boards. Roncalli’s Bridget Perry and Hamilton Heights’ Dakota Weatherford added nine points apiece, and Sullivan’s own Rhagen Smith added eight points.

Columbus North’s Tayler Goodall had 14 points and seven rebounds to lead the Juniors. Mount Vernon’s Moore added eight points.

The Juniors will play thier last game together on Wednesday against the Seniors at Tipton High School with a 6 p.m. start time.

The Juniors were outrebounded 47-33 Monday and outscored 20-7 at the foul line. The Juniors shot just 24 of 69 from the field (34.8 percent) for the game and 7 of 13 from the foul line.

“We can’t give up opportunities, second-chance points,” Jennings said. “Rebounding will be big, knocking down shots, just battling them.”
