NCS HALEY THOMAS SHOOTS over Eau Claires Alexis Robinson for a pair of her 15 points in Fridays game.
Switching out five new players at a time, Eau Claire wanted to wear down North Central. And, as the minutes started to dwindle, so did the Lady Knights’ energy.The strategy of keeping players fresh via substitution trumped NC’s method of using time outs to do the same as the Lady Shamrocks dealt the hostesses a 58-46 loss in a Region 3-AA game played at The Castle in Boonetown on Friday.The 46 points were a season-high for Mitch Lowder’s troops which, he said, are headed in the right direction.“We got beat and, nobody likes that. But I was pleased with the effort,” he said.
