DECEMBER 22, 2016 - UNION CITY
The Covington Lady Buccs built a 30-point third quarter lead before emptying the bench in the final frame and cruised to a 71-48 win over Mississinawa Valley on Thursday.

And it is unselfish play by each player on the Covington roster that continues to success as four Lady Buccs scored in double figures and a total of eight players accounted for points.

Unselfishness is what makes this team so exciting to watch under the direction of Jim Meyer, who was hired less than a month before the season started.

Consider, Samantha Whiteman and Jordan Crowell both scored 13 points each to lead Covington, but it was their ability to attract the attention of the defense and find teammates open with timely passes that stood out most.

Both players also were the benefactors of the play of their teammates, from Lauren Christian, Lexie Long, Allison Angle and Lillian Hamilton crashing the boards and kicking the ball out to Crowell and Whiteman for easy baskets in transition.

This led to a 20-12 lead for Covington after one and a 39-18 lead at the break.

The Lady Buccs pushed the advantage to 58-28 late in the third quarter before a bucket on a stickleback by Kelsey Hunt closed out the third quarter with Covington holding a 28-point lead.

Whiteman, Crowell, Tori Lyle and Lexie Long went to the bench to start the final frame as Meyer rotated his entire varsity roster in and out of the lineup in the final frame.

To go along with the combined 26 points scored by Crowell and Whiteman, Covington received solid offensive performances by seniors Lexie Long and Addison Metz, who both scored 11 points a piece.

Justice Warner scored nine and was beneficial in helping break the Mississinawa Valley press throughout the game - primarily the fourth quarter when many of the other starters were on the bench.

Kelsey Hunt lead the Lady Hawks with a game-high 19 points.

The Lady Buccs pulled down 47 rebounds (17 offensive) and scored 27 points off of turnovers.

The win boosts Covington's record to 8-1 overall and 6-0 in the CCC.

The Lady Buccs travel to Miami East High School on Friday for the rescheduled Barn Ball Tournament where Covington will play a very talented Urbana squad.

 


The blood on Sammi Whiteman's arm is proof of the attention she received from the Mississinawa Valley defense Tursday night. Still, Whiteman set her teammates up for easy buckets by distributing the basketball.
