#23 Lady Blazers Bounce John Logan to Keep Pace with Wabash Valley atop District B

The #23 Lady Trailblazers defeated a scrappy John Logan team at the P.E. Complex this evening to move to 13-and-1 in district play, remaining even with Wabash Valley, in-part thanks to another huge ball game from sophomore Laurhen Pickett and freshman Ladellia Maggett.

The game started off quickly as sophomore Kayla Mallett won the tip, sending the ball soaring down the court to Laurhen Pickett, who would lay the ball in for an easy two. The first quarter would consist of the Lady Trailblazers of Vincennes and the Volunteers of John A. Logan trading basket after basket, and bodies flying everywhere due to scrappy, physical play. VU managed to outlast the Lady Vols in the first, capturing a 21-to-18 lead.

Johnny Logan would score first in the second, but the Lady Blazers would rip off a 10-0 run to extend their lead to 11, 37-to-26 with 2:51 to play. They would extend their lead to as much as 13 with a minute left in the 2nd, and would ultimately take a 10-point, 39-to-29 lead into the half thanks to a huge first-half from Laurhen Pickett. Pickett led all scorers at the half with 18 points, and ripped down 6 boards as well. Freshman Ladellia Maggett was also no slouch in the first-half, as she tallied up 6 points, and handed out 4 assists.

Again, the Lady Volunteers would strike first in the second-half, but Vincennes would answer with another 10-0 run before John A. Logan would call a time-out with 5:27 remaining in the 3rd to try and stop the bleeding. Pickett had poured in 20 points by the end of the 3rd, but despite several big baskets from Pickett, the second half would be the Ladellia Maggett show.

Maggett would score 15 of her 21 points in the second half, and help the Lady Blazers outscore John A. Logan 24-17 over the final quarter of play to give VU a 77-64 win over the Lady Volunteers. The win moves them to 21-and-4 on the season, and 13-and-1 in District B play, tied with Wabash Valley for first place, who currently owns the tie-breaker due to their earlier head-to-head win.

Laurhen Pickett again led the charge for the Lady Blazers scoring the basketball. Pickett would finish with 25 points, 8 rebounds, and a career-high 5 blocked shots. Ladellia Maggett would also eclipse the 20 point mark on the night by funneling in 21 points, and dishing out 6 assists. Sophomore Kayla Mallett and freshman Claudia Stan both grabbed 11 rebounds, and the two bigs erased 4 and 5 shots a-piece respectively.

The #23 Lady Blazers will return to action this Saturday, on the road, at Olney Central. Tip-off is set for 2:00 p.m. EST!
