DECEMBER 6, 2016 - COVINGTON
Leading 25-9 at the half, the Covington Lady Buccs appeared well on their way to an easy win over Arcanum on Tuesday.

But nothing comes easy against a good basketball team, which the Lady Buccs found out first hand as Arcanum outscored Covington 12-1 in the third quarter to get back into the game at 26-21 with one period to play.

Struggling to hit a field goal, Covington put the ball in the hands of leading scorer and floor leader Sammi Whiteman.

And the sophomore came through with a huge bucket to start the fourth and then followed by connecting on two free throws to get Covington's offense rolling once again.

Junior Jordan Crowell followed with a huge trey to push Covington’s lead back to double digits and force an Arcanum timeout.

Once again, Arcanum battled back with relentless defensive pressure and cut the Covington advantage to 38-33 before Whiteman found Lexie Long open down the middle of the floor for an easy layup.

After Arcanum scored at the other end and tipped the ball out of play on the ensuing inbounds pass, Crowell found Long once again open down the middle of the floor. Long was fouled and hit one of two free throws to push Covington's lead to 41-35 with under a minute to play.

Trying to kill the clock, Covington had the miscue it didn’t need as Arcanum stole the ball and converted on a layup to close the gap to 41-37 with 38 seconds left.

Whiteman was then fouled and made one of two free throws to seal the game even with a bucket at the end by Arcanum to make the final score 42-39.

It was a huge win for Covington coming off of its first loss of the season to a very talented Versailles team on Saturday, 60-30.

And it was Whiteman who was the spark plug offensively as she jumpstarted Covington to a 12-5 first quarter lead with seven first quarter points and then scored six more in the second frame to push the lead to 25-9. The sophomore led the way with a game-high 21 points - all earned the hard way against a smothering Trojan defense.

Whiteman had plenty of help at both ends of the floor as Lexie Long, Jordan Crowell, Lauren Christian and Tori Lyle all hit big shots at critical times, while Justice Warner and Addison Metz came up big at the defensive end throughout the game.

Arcanum was led by a 17-point effort by Stevie Johnting and seven points from Gracie Garno.

Covington is now 5-1 on the season and 3-0 in Cross County Conference play. The Lady Buccs host Newton next Tuesday night in a boys & girls varsity double-header.

Lillian Hamilton battles for a rebound during the JV game.
