In a conference season in which frustration and losses have gone hand in hand for the North Central girls’ basketball team, there was a time to celebrate on Tuesday, if only for a brief moment. With the Lady Knights trailing Andrew Jackson, 62-20, in the final 90 seconds of the visiting Lady Volunteers’ eventual 64-26 win, NC’s Jessica Rutherford lit up The Castle with an off-balance 3-point bank shot. Rutherford wildly celebrated the basket by pumping her arms and legs in unison, much to the delight of her teammates, coaches and all those inside the gym.
