Jennings scores 41 in Berries' 68-48 win over Kokomo

Logansport’s 15th North Central Conference win in a row in girls basketball was all about No. 15 — that is the Berries’ No. 15, Whitney Jennings.

The Miss Basketball candidate put on a show in front of a big Berry Bowl crowd Saturday night against arch-rival Kokomo.

Jennings had 41 points, 10 steals, seven rebounds and six assists to lift the Berries to a 68-48 win over the Wildkats for their 15th NCC win in a row.

“She gets 41 points against a conference opponent that is trying to do something to stop her,” Logan coach Jerry Hoover said. “She got 22 at the half and were up 21 at the half. She’s the difference in the game.”

The 41 points is a new career high for Jennings. She shot 13 of 24 from the field and 14 of 15 from the foul line.

She scored 37 and 30 in the Berries’ first two games of the season.

“I understand that I need to score more for us this year for us to be successful,” she said. “I’m not particularly happy that I had too many turnovers (5) I thought. As a point guard I can’t be doing that.”

The Berries (3-0, 1-0 NCC) jumped out to a 35-14 lead at halftime. But the Wildkats (1-1, 0-1) outscored them 34-33 in the second half.

“I thought we came out strong,” Jennings said. “Our defense in the second half — they were lighting it up — but we’ve got to cover shooters, so that’s one thing we really need to work on this next week and a half we have is our individual and team defense.”

The Wildkats caught fire from behind the arc in the second half, making 6 of 11 after hitting 3 of 12 in the first half in falling into the early hole.

“I’m not real happy with our defense,” Hoover said. “Our defense is not what we’ve played for years around here. They’re catching it in the post too easy.
