Penny scores 12 for Junior All-Stars
OXFORD — Logansport’s Jasmine Penny scored 12 points and pulled down five rebounds in the Junior All-Stars’ 86-72 loss against the Indiana All-Stars in an exhibition game Tuesday night at Benton Central High School.
Penny shot 4 of 8 from the field and 4 of 5 from the foul line in the contest.
“She really played well in the second half,” said Logansport coach Jerry Hoover, who estimated Penny played 10 to 11 minutes of the contest. “She got three field goals in a row to start the second half. That was the only time of the game the juniors led. She got them ahead.
“She showed she belonged there, no question.”
Hoover added Penny’s scoring binge to start the second half came at the expense of Kelly Farris, a Connecticut recruit who led Heritage Christian to four straight Class 2A state titles.
“The girl going to Connecticut was on her. She laid it on her for three field goals in very short order,” he said.
Hoover said Penny had a quiet first half before heating up in the second.
“She played in the first half, she just didn’t have many opportunities to score,” he said. “In the second half I thought she did really well. She created opportunities for herself to score. All of the baskets except one were just driving to the basket and making somebody foul her or getting a layup.”
Hoover added the game was played at a near-capacity crowd.
“They probably had 3,000 people there,” he said.
