SOUTH POINT — The Fairland Lady Dragons haven’t been allowed near the basketball court the past two weeks due to a COVID shutdown.
They must have been practicing anyway but taking shots from their homes.
The Lady Dragons were shooting long-distance as they hit eight 3-pointers in a 61-29 Ohio Valley Conference win over the South Point Lady Pointers on Monday.
Bree Allen hit a pair of 3-pointers and had a game-high 19 points to lead Fairland (3-0, 2-0). Tomi Hinkle had three 3-pointers and scored 13 points and Emma Marshall knocked down a pair of bombs and scored 11 points.
Sarah Mitchell scored 9 points and Sarah Roach 7 to pace South Point (0-2, 0-2).
Hinkle hit two 3-pointers and Allen a 3-pointer as she scored 5 points to give Fairland a 17-6 first quarter lead.
Libby Judge scored all 6 of her points including a 3-pointer while Hinkle had 5 points with a 3-pointer as the lead ballooned to 36-12.
Marshall had 9 of her points in the third quarter with a pair of shots behind the arc and Allen had a triple and scored 6 points as the lead grew to 55-20.
