DEFIANCE â€” Nicole Brown and Tasha Helmstetter apparently found Defiance High Schoolâ€™s gymnasium to their liking.
The Wapakoneta Redskins guards lit up the Defiance Bulldogs for a combined 37 points on nine 3-pointers to lead the Redskins to a 58-48 win in a Western Buckeye League varsity girls basketball matchup on Thursday.
Brown, a junior, scored a team-high 20 points, connecting on 6 of 11 (54.5 percent) three-point attempts. Helmstetter, a senior, knocked down 3 of 5 attempts (60 percent) on her way to 17 points.
BOTKINS â€” Back-and-forth the pendulum swung.
And when the horn sounded, it was on Botkinsâ€™ side.
In a game of momentum swings, the Trojans ultimately came out on top, defeating the Russia Raiders 52-45 in overtime in a Shelby County League varsity girls basketball game Thursday at Botkins High School.
The Trojans scored all nine of the points in the overtime from the free throw line. They connected on 9 of 12 attempts in the period.
Russia managed just one field goal in the overtime â€” a Shana Meyer layup with 19 seconds left. By then it was too late.
