Sherburne-Earlville 52, General Brown 49

SHERBURNE – Sherburne-Earlville avoided a second straight first-round Section III tournament exit turning back General Brown Friday night in Class B play.

General Brown, down eight points to start the fourth, hit two free throws with less than two minutes to play to take a 49-47 lead over the Marauders.



S-E (15-4) remained poised, and worked the ball to sophomore Jordan Van Althuis, who drained her fourth three ball of the game pushing her club back in front. Following a defensive stop of General Brown, Sierra Morris canned a long jumper for the final margin.

“(General Brown) certainly had the momentum in the fourth, but our kids stayed composed, and we hit two big shots at the end,” said S-E coach Karen Mulligan. “To come through at this time of the year with the game on the line, I hope this helps us for the next game.”

Van Althuis had a game-high 20 points. Cassie Beaver finished with a double-double scoring 15 points and pulling down 10 boards. Point guard Briana Vibbard did not score, but picked up nine steals and handed out 10 assists.
