Boone blazes by Volunteer

GRAY — Turnovers proved to be the difference Tuesday night when the Daniel Boone girls and boys hosted Volunteer in a pair of Big 7 Conference basketball matchups.

The Lady Trailblazers forced 26 turnovers on the way to an impressive 72-55 win over the Lady Falcons.

In the nightcap, the ’Blazers came up with 25 turnovers and turned them into a 57-44 win over the Falcons.

“We were very efficient when we got them to turn over the basketball,” said Lady Trailblazers coach Travis Mains. “The girls played hard and we had a very balanced game tonight.” 

Katelyn Cox led the Lady ‘Blazers with 20 points, and Taylor Carmichel drained five 3-pointers on the way to 19. Jaclyn Jenkins added 12 points for Boone (5-2, 1-1).

Emily Armstrong had 20 points and Danielle Knittel 14 for Volunteer (8-2, 1-1).

Dillon Reppart had a game-high 26 points for the Trailblazers (6-3, 1-1) in the boys’ game. Ethan Crawford led the Falcons (2-4, 0-2) with 14 points with David McFarland chipping in 12.

“Our inefficiency on offense exposed our deficiencies on defense,” Volunteer coach Chris Brown said. “We can’t expect to be perfect on defense so we must find a way to put the ball in the basket.”
