DEFENSE SPARKS BIG NON-CONFERENCE WIN...
The Covington Lady Buccs rebounded from a tough loss last Thursday with a very impressive win over a highly regarded Russia team, 49-38.
Sammi Whiteman, Morgan Kimmel and Lillian Hamilton hustle to gather a loose ball against Russia.

JANUARY 15, 2019 - COVINGTON
The Covington Lady Buccs picked up a huge non-conference win Tuesday against Shelby County neighbor Russia, 49-38.

And it was an outstanding defensive effort that sparked the win as Covington harassed Russia throughout - holding the visiting Raiders to just eight first half points and 38 for the game.

But Russia was able to get itself back into the game in a blink of an eye after being down 39-23 with just over 3:00 left in the contest.

Back-to-back treys by Olivia Moorman and Ashley Scott, followed by a traditional three-point play by Laurissa Poling, cut the Covington advantage to 39-32 in just twenty seconds.

This forced a Covington timeout and Morgan Kimmel tossed a perfect strike to Morgan Lowe on the inbounds play. Lowe converted a layup at the other end and hit the free throw after being fouled on the shot.

It was the dagger as Covington was able to hit eight-of-11 free throws in the final frame to record the double-digit win.

Sammi Whiteman led all scorers with 21 points, while Makenzee Maschino dropped in 10 points - all coming in the fourth quarter. Morgan Kimmel contributed with seven points as well for Covington.

Laurissa Poling and Ashley Scott led Russia with nine points a piece, while Olivia Moorman dropped in eight and Jenna Cordonnier contributed with six points.

In all, Covington dropped in 16 two-pointers, received a pair of treys by Whiteman and Kimmel, and converted on 11-of-15 from the free throw line.

Meanwhile, Russia scored on eight two-point buckets, five three-pointers and made seven of their 10 free throws in the contest.

Russia drops to 9-4 on the season, while Covington improves to 13-2 and travels to Bethel on Thursday.
