Wood Memorial upsets North Daviess on Senior Night



"We weren't disciplined in our defensive effort," Knepp said. "We had two people in one spot on several occasions and we can't do that. I think that can be corrected pretty easily. It just was not our night."

The beginning of the third quarter wasn't much better for the Cougars as Wood Memorial took complete control as it pushed the lead to 30-19 with 3:20 to play in the quarter. Meghan Knepp's 3-pointer cut the lead to 30-22, but a turnover and a technical foul on North Daviess pushed the lead to double digits again. A late Knepp layup cut the lead to 33-24 at the end of the quarter, but the Trojans appeared to be in complete control.

Back-to-back Sabra Smith baskets brought North Daviess within three points at 33-30, the closest it had been since the second quarter. Despite being on the cusp of tying the game, the Cougars couldn't capitalize on multiple opportunities to tie the game and Wood Memorial pulled away by ending the final six minutes on a 10-2 run to close out the 11-point victory.

"Our emotions were very high coming into the game and we just never got control of that," Knepp said. We started to in the fourth quarter and had it down to three for some time and had shots and missed four or five good wide open shots. We battled back and they never gave up. It's an emotional night and we have four kids that have done so much for the program and it's a night where they were honored. It's an emotional night for them and that's hard for a kid that age to be able to accomplish that all in one night."

Knepp was the lone Cougar in double figures with 11 points, Smith had seven, Moore added six, Cecil scored four, and Mallett and Makayla Spears had two points each. The Cougars have two remaining home games against North Central (Farmersburg) on Monday and Eastern Green on Thursday before the sectional starts Feb. 11 at Jack Butcher Arena in Loogootee.
