Girls basketball: BBE loses at the line

Email

BELGRADE -- For a six-foot center, Heather Strese sure can shoot free throws.

The Brandon-Evansville senior made 13-of-13 at the charity stripe to fuel her 29-point evening in the Jaguars' gymnasium and leading the Chargers to a 64-57 non-conference win on Monday over Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa.

Strese floated in 8 of 8 down the stretch when the Jaguars fouled in a futile attempt to close the gap.

BBE, which trailed by 7 at halftime just as they would at the end, got balanced scoring led by Raeann Sorenson with 16 points.

BBE's 5-11 sophomore center Becca Gruber added 13 points, plus 10 rebounds, followed by Mariah Rach's four 3-pointers for 12 points and then Megan Weller with 11 points and 8 rebounds.

Sorenson also made 7 steals.

Both teams had 22 field goals, though BBE shooters were 7 of 20 from the arc compared to 2 of 21 for the Chargers.

The visitors' more than made up the difference going 18 of 23 from the line compared to 6 of 11 for the Jaguars.

Megan Friedrich chipped in with 18 points for the Chargers, who improved to 10-3.
