Tiger girls’ hoops team blasts G-SL

Kelsey Saugstad hits 8 3-pointers as Marshall blows out Panthers, 68-38

Marshall Independent

Senior point guard Kelsey Saugstad drilled eight 3-pointers, scoring a game-high 24 points to lead the Marshall girls' basketball team to a dominant 68-38 win over Glencoe-Silver Lake Thursday in Glencoe.

The Tigers (3-0 overall) nearly hit half of their field goals from beyond the arc, as they made 13 2-pointers and 12 3-pointers.

Along with her hot shooting, Saugstad also dished out four assists in the game.

"Kelsey shot well, especially in the first half," Marshall head coach Dan Westby said. "The other thing she did a good job of was she really got her teammates involved in the second half."

Hannah Bennett joined Saugstad in double figures with 11 points. She added four assists and four steals. Morgan Saugstad chipped in nine points, and Sarah Andersen scored six points and had a team-high six rebounds.

The Tigers got off to a hot start right away and were up 42-22 by halftime.

"They came out and played zone, and we haven't seen much of that, but our kids really handled it well," Westby said. "We were patient and moved the ball well, waited to get a good look, and that was a good job by our kids. We didn't rush things."

The Tigers had just eight turnovers in game.

G-SL (0-3 overall) got a team-high 14 points from 6-foot-1 forward Clarissa Ober, who is going to play for South Dakota State next season. Westby said Ober has a strong inside-outside game, and felt his players did well to force her out on the perimeter through the game. Ober was the only G-SL player to score over eight points.

The Tigers will take their three-game winning streak into Redwood Falls on Tuesday, when they face Redwood Valley in their Southwest Conference opener.
