Whitney Jennings had a final stat line that most players can only dream about.
But Logansport’s star guard was unsatisfied with her performance afterwards.
Jennings had 36 points, 11 rebounds, eight assists, seven steals and two blocks in the Lady Berries’ 70-50 win over Lafayette Jeff Tuesday in the Berry Bowl.
But Jennings wasn’t happy that she shot 13 of 31 from the field (41.9 percent). She was 3 of 6 from 3-point range and 7 of 9 from the foul line.
“It was an interesting game to say the least. Shots weren’t falling like normal,” she said. “I was trying to draw contact and they weren’t really calling it but you’ve got to adjust to the way the refs are calling it. It’s a learning point. You’ve got to move forward.
“It was a rough game for me I guess but I thought our defense was a little better. I thought everyone was more aggressive.”
Lafayette Jeff (0-8) entered winless on the season and was coming off a 88-32 loss at No. 8 Westfield on Saturday. But the Bronchos came to play Tuesday and kept within 20 points of the high-scoring Berries (6-0).
“It might sound crazy to say but I’m very happy with how our kids played,” Jeff coach Andy Baker said. “We had a huge letdown against Westfield. I felt like we never competed at all in that game. The attitudes weren’t great. The effort .... there was no effort. We had a good day in practice yesterday. I never thought I’d say I was pleased with a 20-point loss, but I thought our kids played hard.”
The Berries jumped out to a 41-26 lead at the half despite being outrebounded 27-9. Jennings had 21 points and six assists by halftime.
The Berries led 50-28 midway through the third quarter after back-to-back baskets by Sydney Bullard, but the Bronchos closed the quarter with a 6-0 run to cut the lead to 50-34 after three.
