Lady Eagles advance, Cauble reaches 3,000

The Oran High School varsity girls basketball team picked up an easy 69-14 win over Meadow Heights last night in the opening round of the First State Community Bank Holiday Classic at the Show Me Center.  In the process, senior Leah Cauble surpassed the 3,000 career point plateau.  Coming into the contest she needed 34 to reach the mark.

The Eagles jumped out to a 28-5 lead after one period and Cauble had 19.  Halftime saw the lead at 49-7 and Cauble at 32.

It took just over a minute and a half into the third period before she reached the milestone.

Cauble finished with 36.  She was 13-16 from inside the arc and 3-7 from beyond and hit her only free throw attempt.  Kaylee Payne finished with 13 points and six rebounds.

Jessie Long had eight points and seven steals,  Katelyn Streeter hit a trey for her three points and Claire Ramsey also scored three.  Ramsey grabbed six boards as well.  Savannah Below hit three free throws to account for her points.  Katie Webb had a field goal and Heather Gosche hit a free toss to round out the scoring.

Oran was 22-37 from inside the arch for 60% and 5-21 from beyond for 24%.  At the free throw line, they hit 10-16 for 63%.

Coach Ethan Evans said, " We came out and got after it on the press and got some easy baskets. I would like to see our half court game get a little more consistent going forward."

With the win, the second-seeded Eagles improved to 6-1 and will face the number-three seeded Saxony Lutheran Crusaders tonight at 8:30 in a semifinal matchup.
