HARROD â€” Wapakonetaâ€™s Courtney Knippen may be sporting a black eye but there is definitely nothing wrong with her shooting eye as she pumped in a game-high 33 points to propel the Redskins past Allen East, 72-40, in a non-league confrontation Tuesday night at Allen East High School.
The Redskins improve to 3-1 overall and Allen East evens its record at 3-3.
Knippen was a scintillating 12-of-14 from the floor and a perfect 7-for-7 from the charity stripe.
BOTKINS â€” The Botkins Trojans made a fight of it but came up short at home for the second night in a row.
The New Knoxville Rangers used a strong fourth quarter to put the Trojans away, 50-38, in a varsity girls basketball game Tuesday at Botkins High School.
â€śIt was an ugly game,â€ť Rangers varsity coach Tim Hegemier said. â€śI was really disappointed in our defense and the offense, but you are going to have those games.â€ť
