GIRLS BASKETBALL: Marshall posts 78-54 win at H-M

February 3, 2014
Marshall Independent

MAPLEWOOD - Class 3A No. 5-ranked Marshall picked up a convicing win over Hill-Murray on Saturday as it took a 78-54 victory.

After falling behind 8-2, Marshall secured a 34-30 lead heading into halftime and outscored the Pioneers 40-28 in the second half.

The Tigers had four players in double figures, which showed depth and balance. It's something Marshall coach Dan Westby has been seeing all season.

"Our balanced scoring has really been a positive this year," Westby said. "Just about everyone in our rotation has led us or been near the top of the scoring at one time or another. We'll be tough to defend if that trend continues."

Kenzie Beekman led the Tigers with 18 points while Sarah Buysee finished with 15 and Morgan Saugstad had 14. Callie Graff chipped in 10 points.

Ellie Schwartz led the Pioneers with 19 points to go with 17 from Lindsey Malecha.

Marshall hosts Windom Area on Thursday.
