Girls Basketball Roundup: Stall-ball tactics can’t derail Rams

NORTH ROBINSON — Nobody has been able to slow down Upper Sandusky’s girls playing conventional basketball this season.
But Colonel Crawford’s attempt to hold the ball for minutes at a time, slow the pace down and shorten the game? That didn’t work either as Upper remained unbeaten with a 29-19 win on Tuesday.
The Rams, which did not earn a spot in the top 10 of the first Division II AP poll of the season, improved to 13-0 overall and 8-0 in the Northern 10 Conference.
Abigail Fogle, the leading scorer in the N10 at 21 points per game, scored 12 including both of the Rams’ 3s. Sierra Carey led with four assists, Megan Hensel and Ayana Getz each grabbed a team-best three rebounds, while Getz added three steals and Hensel had three dimes.
Alexus Burkhart led the Eagles (6-6, 4-4 N10) with 12 points.
