Josie Early led all scorers

by David Miller

No 8 seed Loveland advanced in the State tournament Wednesday night in a game played at Lakota East High School by defeating #16 seed Oak Hills. Josie Early led all scorers in the 48-34 contest with 16 points. She was 7 for 9 from the charity stripe. Charity is a misnomer when it comes to Early. She more than earns those trips to the foul line almost never seeing a clear way to the rim as defenses double-team and collapse on her trips inside the circle. The Senior 5’7″ guard pulled down 5 rebounds and stole the ball from the Highlanders 4 times.

Ten of Olivia Rabe’s 14 points were a result of her perfect 10-10 night at the foul line. Rabe is a 6’2″ Senior.

Senior Forward Olivia Rabe also earns each of her trips to the foul line. She was 10 for 10 against Oak hills.

Mason (15-1, 23-1) advanced after beating Anderson 60-27 on February 5 and this past Wednesday evening by beating Northwest 67-8. Mason’s only loss was on December 7th when they traveled to Lakota East, 52-48. The Comets are on a 17-game win streak. Mason won the GMC conference title. Mason’s top scorer is Sophmore guard #20, Madison Parrish who scored 28 in Mason’s 63-62 win at Princeton on January 11. She averages 13.3 points.

The Tigers are 11-5, 17-5 for the season, and finished ECC competition # 3.

The Tiger vs Comets game is on Tuesday, February 21 at 5 PM and will be played at Harrison High School.
