Sauk Valley Shootout

Sterling 54, Stillman Valley 39: Josi Borum had a double-double before halftime, and Stillman Valley could not dig its way entirely out of the hole in the second half, as Sterling picked up a win at Musgrove Fieldhouse.

Borum had 11 points and 11 rebounds in the first half on her way to a 19-point, 13-rebound game. After hitting a jumper early in the first quarter for her first points of the night, most of the rest of her scoring came from driving to the basket or taking passes while cutting down the lane.

Anna Broski finished with 20 points to lead the Cardinals, but fouled out in the fourth quarter. Georgia Ballard, a freshman point guard, finished with 12.

Junior forward Kenzie Olson swatted three balls from Newman passes in that span, and the strong defense turned into a 9-0 opening run.

Madison Craft’s 3-pointer with 4:33 left in the first quarter broke the drought for the Comets (2-1), who got as close as 13-11 before the first of four 3s from senior guard Abbee Sigel lit a spark that eventually led to a running clock in the fourth quarter.

Sigel, who added two 3s in the second quarter and one more in the third, led the Rockets with 14 points.

Alejandra Padilla led the Comets with 13 points.

Dixon 43, Erie 22

Maddie Meek’s 12 points paced the Thunder (0-2).

Genoa-Kingston 39, Milledgeville 31: The Missiles dropped their season opener at Oregon, falling behind 11-3 after one quarter and 28-14 by halftime. Rebecca Waite scored 14 points to pace Milledgeville (0-1), while Jocelyn Folkers had eight and Sabreena Hartman added seven.

Erin Henze added 14 points, 4 rebounds and 2 steals, and Lydia Coatney chipped in 6 points, 17 rebounds, 4 steals and 3 assists. Jordan Miller chipped in 6 points and 7 boards for the Eastland (2-0), which led 15-9 after one quarter and pulled away from there.

NOV. 15

Sauk Valley Shootout

Newman 56, Sterling 50: Newman went 4-for-4 from the field and 6-for-6 from the free-throw line in overtime to defeat its in-town rival.

Newman (2-0) shot just 33 percent (21-for-64) for the game, but made up for it by going 10-for-12 at the charity stripe. An emphasis on jumping passing lanes and taking chances at the defensive end also contributed to the victory.

Lauren Wilson tied the game at 42 with 33.2 seconds left in regulation by nailing a pair of free throws. Each team had two attempts at game-winning shots in the waning moments, but none fell. The Warriors (0-2) shot just 32 percent (18-for-56) from the floor, and 44 percent (12-for-27) from the free-throw line.

Wilson had 12 points, 3 rebounds, a pair of assists and a steal for Newman. Madison Craft added 7 points, 4 steals and 3 assists, and Delaney Hinrichs finished with a game-high 6 steals.
