WEM 58, USC 38

The United South Central Rebels girls basketball team had some higher percentages for shooting than their opponents on Friday night, Feb. 5, but the problem was they did not take as many shots as the other team.

The Rebels lost to the visiting Waterville-Elysian-Morristown Buccaneers by a score of 58-38.

The Rebels were 11 of 19 from 2-point range for 58 percent shooting, 2 of 14 from 3-point range for 14 percent, and 10 of 19 from the charity stripe for 53 percent.

The Bucs were just 43 percent from 2-point range, 7 percent from behind the 3-point arc and 47 percent for free throws.

However, they were 20 of 47 for 2-point shots and 15 of 32 for free-throws.

Dani Kirkeide led the Rebels with 11 points and six rebounds. She also had two assists and two steals.

Izzy O’Rourke and Hannah Olson had six points each, while Lexi Johnson and Macy Zebro each added four points. Kelsie Chapman added three points and Hannah Meyer and Maya Zebro each had two.

Meyer also grabbed five rebounds, and Johnson, O’Rourke and Olson each had three. Macy Zebro and Olson each had a blocked shot.

Up next for the Rebel girls is a home game against Bethlehem Academy on Friday, Feb. 12. Details will be in the next edition of the Faribault County Register.
