&uot;This was a huge win,&uot; said Lady Rebels head coach Bruce Pickle. &uot;Our girls needed this one.&uot;

Case and Hankins scored 10 of ACCS’s 15 first-quarter points as the Lady Rebels took a four-point lead going into the second quarter.

&uot;I couldn’t have done it without the other girls,&uot; Case said. &uot;I think we pulled together and played great as a team. I’m proud of the other girls and the way they played.&uot;

The Lady Hounds (5-4) scored seven of their nine second-quarter points at the free-throw line, but trailed 30-20 at halftime.

&uot;I think we were very sluggish,&uot; said Lady Hounds head coach Penny Moak. &uot;We had a hard game last night against Silliman. That pretty much drained us.&uot;

Huntington got back in the game by outscoring ACCS 13-7 in the third quarter to cut the Lady Rebels’ lead to 37-33 going into the fourth quarter.

&uot;I think they were trying (to come back),&uot; Moak said. &uot;(Emily) Hazlip was in foul trouble and she’s our big scorer, so that hurt us.&uot;

The Lady Rebels took command in the fourth quarter by outscoring the Lady Hounds 13-5 for the final score.

One of the few bright spots of the game for Huntington was an overall 12-for-16 performance at the free-throw line.

Sarah Ashmore led Huntington with 11 points and was 5-for-6 at the line. Hazlip was held to eight points.

Huntington next plays tonight at 7 p.m. in the Silliman Tournament in Clinton, La. against the loser of the Oak Forest/Amite School Center game.

ACCS next plays at Parklane at approximately 5:30 p.m.Thursday.
