REDMOND — Reeling off their second victory in three days, the Redmond Panthers blew past Crook County 54-44 on Tuesday night to put together their first win streak of the season.
The Panthers (2-15 overall), who snapped a 15-game losing streak Saturday with a 39-32 victory over Baker, led 29-17 at halftime before sealing the Intermountain Hybrid win. Chantel Dannis posted a double-double with 15 points and 10 rebounds, Maddie Edwards added 13 points and four assists, and Sophia Hamilton contributed nine points, eight rebounds and three assists for Redmond.
“We’re getting better,” said Panther coach Angela Capps. “We’re being more aggressive driving to the hoop and realizing if we get the ball to our big girls, good things will happen.”
Redmond connected on 25 of 38 foul shots against the Cowgirls (6-11), who have lost eight of their last nine.
Michaeline Malott paced Crook County with 17 points. Crook County’s standout post Kimmer Severance finished with 13 points, but had just five through three quarters.
“Our basketball IQ is getting better,” said Capps, who plays three sophomores and two freshmen in her varsity rotation.
