Marshall Independent

MANKATO - Behind double-digit scoring from five players, Class 3A No. 3-ranked Marshall trampled Mankato West 81-45 in non-conference girls basketball action Monday in Mankato.

The Tigers came out strong in the first half, taking a 48-20 advantage into the break.

"We were able to rebound the ball very well with 51 rebounds, 16 of which came at the offensive end for putbacks," Tigers head coach Dan Westby said. "We also were able to move the ball well and share it with 24 assists on 33 field goals."

Sarah Buysse pitched in 16 points and seven assists to lead Marshall, while Hannah Bennett contributed 13 points. Marah Mulso and Morgan Saugstad chipped in 10 points and nine rebounds apiece, while Kenzie Beekman added 11 points and two steals.

Lexi Schoper led the Scarlets with 19 points. Emily Veroeven added 10 points in the loss.

The Tigers concluded the regular season with a 25-1 record and await seeding for the playoffs. Marshall will likely secure the No. 1 seed in the Class 3A Section 2 Tournament and will likely host a quarterfinal game at 7 p.m. Tuesday.
