LOCAL ROUNDUP: Lady Vikes fall short to Spartans at home

DANVILLE —  Lynette Buggs scored six points and pulled down 10 second-half rebounds but it wasn’t enough as the Danville girls basketball team fell to St. Joseph-Ogden 45-39 on Saturday.

St. Joseph-Ogden, which improved to 19-6, built a 12-point halftime lead (26-14) with senior Bailey Trimble scoring 10 of her game-high 18 points in the second quarter.

Danville (15-8) got within three points (38-35) late, but St. Joseph-Ogden made 11-of-16 free throws in final quarter to seal the victory.

The Spartans were 18-of-28 at the charity stripe, while the Vikings attempted just 12, making eight.

St. Joseph-Ogden senior guard Ashley Landis was 9-of-10 at the line as she contributed 17 points to go along with Trimble’s 18.

Leading the Danville scoring attack was Alexus Jimson-Miller with 16 points, but the senior guard was just 4-of-21 from the field and that included her making 4-of-13 behind the 3-point arc.

The Vikings shot a dismal 22.8 percent (13-of-57), and they were 5-of-27 from 3-point range.

Joining Jimson-Miller in double digits was senior Breanna Keys with 10.

Danville will be back in action on Tuesday with a Big 12 Conference contest at home against the Decatur MacArthur Generals. The sophomore game begins at 6 p.m., with the varsity contest tentatively set for a 7:30 p.m. tipoff.

The Jaguar bench outscored ICC’s 40-15.

“Our guys did a great job of maintaining their composure and continuing to play, when ICC came out shooting so hot. Our bench was huge tonight,” DACC coach Mike Carpenter said. “We have a big game on Wednesday, and need to bring the same kind of effort on Wednesday.”

The Jaguars are 18-3 and 3-0 in the Mid-West Athletic Conference and will face Parkland College on Wednesday.
