The JV Lady Titans got beat up Thursday night by a very good Tecumseh team, 54-34. Gibson Southern struggled shooting all night and had a hard time taking care of the ball vs. an aggressive defense from the Lady Braves. On the night, the Lady Titans shot 35% from the field (making just 1-of-12 three-point attempts and 7-of-16 free throws) and had 27 turnovers. Tecumseh capitalized on those turnovers, cashing in those possessions for 27 points. Despite the rough night, Gibson Southern entered the fourth quarter trailing by just six points. With about five minutes left, point guard Ally Malone took a tumble, hitting her head hard on the floor. She missed the rest of the game as a precaution. Center Alexis Tucker fouled out about a minute later. The Lady Braves made shots from the field and free throw line down the stretch to pull away.
Gibson Southern was led in scoring by Maddie Kautzman with 15. Alexis Tucker (7), Ally Malone (5), Abby Deal (4), Sydney Long (3) & Alex Holmes (2) also scored for the Lady Titans. Alexis Tucker pulled down 8 boards and Alex Holmes had 7.
The Lady Titans will return to action for their fourth game of a busy week Saturday at Boonville.
