Mater Dei shoots past Logan in HOF Classic play

Berries will face HSE in consolation game.

NEW CASTLE — Logansport’s girls team’s first game at the Hall of Fame Classic certainly didn’t go the way the Berries wanted it to on Friday morning.

Class 2A No. 1 Evansville Mater Dei rolled to an 83-54 win over the Class 4A No. 4 Berries.

Logan (11-1) will face Class 4A No. 1 Hamilton Southeastern (12-1) in the consolation game at 4 p.m. Friday. HSE was also defeated by a lopsided final score, 53-30, in the first game of the day against Class 4A No. 2 Columbus North (12-0).

Maura Muensterman set a new semifinal game record of the Classic with 40 points to lead Mater Dei (12-0). She was 16 of 25 from the field including 7 of 10 from 3-point range.

The Wildcats shot 50.7 percent from the field including 10 of 16 from behind the arc.

“When you’re shooting it like they’re shooting it, it’s hard. That’s all there is to it,” Logan coach Jerry Hoover said. “We just ran into a team that was hot. And I’ve said all along we’re not big enough.”

Logan was outrebounded 41-34 and allowed several second-chance points. Tori Schickel tied a HOF Classic record with 18 rebounds to go with 17 points for the Bulldogs. Laura Greenwell added 12 points.

“We were not good on defense because we gave up too many layups and second shots,” Hoover said.

Whitney Jennings led the Berries with 18 points, eight rebounds and four assists. She was 7 of 21 from the field. Rachel Jennings had 12 points which included 4-of-6 shooting from 3-point range. Madyson Price had 11 points and six boards, and Nakeya Penny had 10 points and eight rebounds. Kiley Victor chipped in three points and five boards.

Logan shot a season-low 33.3 percent from the field. The Wildcats took away their transition game by taking good care of the ball and their rebounding advantage.

Logan’s tallest player, Krista Kyyroenen, didn’t play due to illness. The Berries also recently learned that starter Seanna Redman is out for the season with her ACL injury. She has surgery scheduled in January and hopes to return for softball.

So the Berries were short-handed and played just six players for most of the game, and with the extra early start and lack of depth, fatigue may have been a big factor.

Both teams took good care of the ball, as Mater Dei had just four turnovers for the game and Logan had just two.

The Berries will have to regroup quickly for the HSE game.

“We’ve got a situation where we just played a No. 1 team and now we’re going to play another No. 1 team,” Hoover said.
