Logan shoots past Caston, continues county dominance

Logan shoots past Caston, continues county dominance

Caston’s girls basketball team entered Saturday’s game against Logansport with the 15th ranked scoring defense in the state, holding opponents to just 31 points per game.

But Whitney Jennings was simply unstoppable.

Jennings led the Berries to a 64-40 win over the Comets Saturday night in the Logansport Savings Bank Cass County Tournament final. It was the Berries’ eighth county title in the eight years it has been held in girls basketball.

Jennings hit the 31-point total by early in the fourth quarter herself. She finished with 35 points, nine assists, six rebounds and two steals in the contest. She was 16 of 28 from the field (57.1 percent).

“I think the No. 1 reason that we won was that Whitney Jennings played with tremendous energy at the start of the game and continued that throughout the game,” Logan coach Jerry Hoover said. “There’s no way getting around it, she came ready to play and played with tremendous energy. Because of her energy we were able to win.”

The Berries (5-0) entered as the third highest scoring team in the state, averaging 79.3 ppg. Jennings credited the Comets (4-2) for holding them to more than 15 points under their average.

“They’re an athletic, physical team,” she said. “Their man-to-man is really good. We knew coming in it was going to be a battle. They’re tough.

“I think they have the potential to have a really great season.”

The Berries jumped out to a 19-7 lead in the first quarter after Jennings opened with 15 points in the game’s first six minutes.

But the Comets responded with an 8-2 run to get within 21-15 with 6:25 left in the half.

The Berries answered with a run of their own as Maddie Dalton and Kennedy Curl got into the scoring column and Sydney Bullard chipped in a couple baskets, and the Berries closed the half on a 12-0 run to lead 34-15 at the half. Jennings had 21 points and four assists by halftime.
