COAL GROVE — Share and take care.

Sharing and taking care of the basketball were the keys for Coal Grove as the Lady Hornets beat the South Point Lady Pointers 50-41 Thursday in an Ohio Valley Conference game.

The Lady Hornets had just two offensive rebounds, but they committed just five turnovers and handed out 13 assists.

“At the beginning of the game I told my girls to act like you were playing basketball with your best friend,” said Coal Grove coach Rick Roach.

“Well, good friends like to share and that was obvious with the assists.”

Ashley Adkins scored 18 points as Coal Grove improved to 12-6 and took over sole possession of second place in the league at 5-3.

Brett Justice had 20 points to lead South Point (6-8, 4-4).

“It’s understandable to have only two offensive rebounds when they have 6-foot-1 and 5-foot-11 players,” said Roach. “Now we just need to refine a few things to get a few more wins.”

The game was tied 7-7 after the first quarter but Coal Grove went ahead 20-16 at the half.

The Lady Hornets pushed the lead to 32-27 after three quarters and outscored South Point 18-14 in the fourth quarter.

Coal Grove visits Fairland next Thursday. South Point plays at Ironton on Saturday at 3:45 p.m.
