State-ranked Delta girls survive with OT victory at Scott County

Saturday, February 25, 2006

The Delta girls basketball team, ranked No. 2 in the state's Class 1 poll, was pushed to overtime in a 59-50 victory at Scott County Central on Friday night.

The Bobcats (24-1) have lost only to a Class 4 team this season.

They are the top seed in a two-team district with Oran, while Scott County Central is the only team in Class 1 District 1, meaning one game separates a rematch in the sectional round.

Delta outscored the Bravettes 11-2 in the extra period Friday.

Kaci Menz led Delta with 24 points, Ashley Deprow had 12 and Shea Smith 11.

Scott Central received 28 points from Brittney Peet and 14 from Lakeisha Turner.
