Whitney Jennings has quadruple-double to lead No. 4 Berries to rout of TL

MONTICELLO — There’s dominating a game, and there’s what Whitney Jennings was able to do at Twin Lakes Tuesday night.

Jennings recorded a most incredible of stat lines — a quadruple-double of 40 points, 10 rebounds, 12 assists and 12 steals — to lead the Class 4A No. 4 Berries to an 83-27 win over the Indians.

It was indeed a most spectacular night for the 5-foot-5 dynamo of a point guard.

“I’ve been coaching almost 50 years, I’ve never seen a quadruple-double,” Logan coach Jerry Hoover said. “And we knew it. We knew it at the half, we told her what she needed to have. She wanted to get it, and all the girls wanted her to get it, too.”

Jennings almost had a quadruple-double by halftime — she had 24 points, seven rebounds, seven assists and eight steals — as the Berries (19-1) bolted out to a 44-10 lead at the break.

After three quarters she had 32 points, nine rebounds, 10 assists and 11 steals as the Berries led 67-14.

She grabbed her 10th rebound midway through the fourth quarter and added two more baskets to get to 40 points, which tied a career-high set last year in a win at Huntington North. She left the game with about three minutes left to play when Logan led 81-24.

Jennings finished 17 of 25 from the field. She was unstoppable in transition and on fire from the field, hitting a number of tough running jump shots from 13 to 19 feet.

“My shots were falling and my teammates were hitting shots and everything was just going our way,” she said.

The Berries finished with four in double figures. Nakeya Penny posted 13 points and six rebounds, Madyson Price had 12 points and six rebounds and Kiley Victor had 11 points and five rebounds.

The Berries shot 58.6 percent from the field and forced 27 Twin Lakes turnovers.

The Berries played without starting guard Rachel Jennings, who sat out with an illness. It was the first time the Jennings sisters hadn’t played in a game together for the Berries in the last three years.

“Coming into the game I was a little upset because I knew Rachel wasn’t going to play, so I knew I had to step up a little bit and do a little more of everything,” Whitney Jennings said. “But we just definitely need Rachel back healthy for Friday.”

Whitney Jennings, an Iowa recruit and 2014 Miss Basketball candidate, has had one other triple-double in her career when she had 22 points, 19 assists, 14 steals last year against Pioneer as a sophomore. She added five rebounds in that contest.

Twin Lakes has a proud tradition in girls basketball. The Indians’ all-time leading scorer is the Jennings’ sisters cousin, Betsy Adams, who scored 1,802 points and was an Indiana All-Star in 2008. She’s now a fifth-year senior player at Florida Gulf Coast.

But Adams, like Logan all-time leading scorer Jasmine Penny, is in jeopardy of being caught in the scoring column by Whitney Jennings before her junior season is concluded. Whitney has now scored 1,645 points for her career.

Chloe McAchren had nine points and seven rebounds to lead the Indians (10-9), who have lost six of seven.

The Berries travel to New Castle on Friday night for a chance to run the table in the North Central Conference for the second year in a row. Hoover hopes to have Rachel Jennings back in the lineup.

“I sure as dickens hope she’s ready for New Castle because we’re going to need everybody we can get when we get down there,” he said. “They’re good. They’re really good, and we haven’t had real good luck at New Castle. And we would like to win the conference outright. That’s an important game for us.”
