?    Floyd Central won a big 55-41 Hoosier Hills Conference (HHC) decision over host New Albany Saturday night, in a game in which Jennifer Smith scored 16 points for the Lady Highlanders.
    On Thursday, Borden hosted Paoli and won a girls’ basketball decision by a similar 55-41 score.
    And last Tuesday, Lanesville traveled to South Central and lost 51-31 in a Southern Athletic Conference (SAC) contest.
    Floyd Central 55, New Albany 41-Jennifer Smith’s 16 points were a big factor in the win for the Lady Highlanders, but the points weren’t always falling for Smith in the contest. She scored 10 of her 16 point total in the 2nd half, and three of the baskets were in the crucial 4th quarter.
    Up only 41-35 with 5:39 in the game, Floyd called a full time out, and Smith scored her three 4th quarter buckets over the remainder of the game.
    Brittany Sutton got New Albany even closer to the Lady Highlanders first, with her bucket at 5:19. The Lady Bulldogs were within 41-37 at this time, but Brigid Morrissey answered with a pair of free throws at 3:38.
    Lindsay Johnson contributed a bucket for the Lady Bulldogs 11 seconds later, but the Lady Highlanders outscored New Albany 12-2 the rest of the way for the win.
    Jennifer Smith scored her three buckets with 3:16, 2:40, and 26 seconds on the clock left in the game.
    Also contributing for Floyd in the 12-2 stretch were Erica Smith, Morgan Rookstool, and Shelby Allen.
    According to Floyd Central coach Joe Voelker, it was just the right time to get the ball into the hands of Jennifer Smith.
    “We started rushing possessions; the ball had to get to Jennifer Smith,” said Voelker. Voelker also was pleased with Morgan Rookstool’s play in the 1st half.
