Shawe Memorial's girls hit just 21 percent of its shots and was shut out in the third quarter in a 45-22 basketball loss at Henry County (Ky.) Saturday in New Castle, Ky.
The Hilltoppers stayed with Henry (2-4) through the first two quarters and trailed only 16-11 at halftime. But a dry-spell in the third quarter led to a 15-0 Henry run that put the game away.
"We really struggled tonight on offense and with rebounding. We were not ready to play when we got off the bus," Shawe coach Camille Deuser said. "Jenna Armstrong really played well coming off of the bench. She has really been working on her rebounding to compliment her shooting. Meg Scroggins also really came in and played hard. Hopefully we can move on and learn from this game."
Shawe hit only 8-of-38 from the floor and turned the ball over 19 times. Henry County wasn't much better at 31 percent (16-of-51) but hit more free throws (11) than the Hilltoppers attempted (10).
Armstrong led Shawe with seven points and seven assists. Shannon Fry scored six, Taylor Grote had four, Hannah Storm had three and Scroggins had two.
Shawe, now 1-5 on the season, visits Milan on Tuesday. The Hilltoppers' lone win of the season to date came in a 38-33 non-conference matchup with the Indians on Nov. 19.
