Tigers sweep Warriors in doubleheader

LEBANON — Sagamore Conference rivals Danville and Lebanon competed in a boys’ and girls’ basketball doubleheader last night. The host Tigers won both games.

Lebanon girls’ basketball coach Beth DeVinney wasn’t happy with the way her team played Wednesday night in a loss to Western.

Whatever she said in Thursday’s practiced work. The Class 3A No. 3 Tigers jumped out to a 15-0 lead three minutes into the game and moved to 3-0 in the Sagamore Conference with a 68-31 win against Danville.

“We came out much more focused,” DeVinney said. “It was a rough mid-week game for us, it just didn’t go very well. We responded well. We talked a lot in practice and did a lot of talking about what we needed to do better. We still turned the ball over way too much; we are just trying to hurry things. The problem is they are still learning my transition and my style of play and it is much faster than what they are used too. Early in the season we had a good feel about what was going on and somewhere along the way we lost that feel.”

From the opening tip, Lebanon controlled the pace of play.

Carly Greene got a putback and Katie Curtis scored five points in 13 seconds to make it 7-0 just a minute into the game.

The Tigers continued to press forward, making it 15-0 on a Curtis jumper with 5:07 left in the first quarter.

The basket was the 1,000th point of her career.

“That is a great accomplishment,” DeVinney said. “She came out today with much more focus and purpose. She did a great job early. She forced a little later on just trying to make things happen. ... But you just can’t say enough about Katie Curtis, she is someone you would want as a daughter.”
