Girls’ Basketball

G-MU 52, Morris 45 (OT)

MORRIS – G-MU forward Kristen Barnes had a quiet game for four quarters, then spoke up offensively in overtime. Barnes had a three-point play off a pass from Miranda Hill, and added another layup scoring all five of her points during the extra period as the Raiders topped Morris Friday night.

Tanya Barnes had 27 points for G-MU, 13 in the opening period, and Hill scored 11 to give the Raiders a 3-0 mark in division play. “The way we’re playing, it helps to have Tanya, who opens things up,” said G-MU coach Jim Johnson. “Miranda is playing unbelievably for us, too. Morris has a pretty good club, and the Flint (Amanda) girl shot lights out.”

Flint scored the tying bucket in regulation with under 35 seconds to play. G-MU was called for an offensive foul on its last possession, and Morris had a shot for the win that was off the mark.

Flint scored 20 in the loss and Kelsea Webster added 14 points.

G-MU (5-2, 3-0) plays at Worcester today in a makeup game from Jan. 5.

Cincinnatus 43, Otselic Valley 19

CINCINNATUS – Otselic Valley was shot just 16 percent from the field (9-for-55) and did not make a free throw in 11 attempts in Friday’s loss at Cincinnatus.

Nicolette Otto and Whitney Cobb had 12 points apiece for Cincy against the offensively-challenged Vikings. The Vikes committed 23 turnovers, although they did pick up 10 steals. “Most of those steals came off the press, but you can’t press much when you’re not scoring,” said OV coach Ron Graham. “Cincinnatus made the shots it was supposed to make, and we’re not right now.”
