South Hardin girls lack scoring punch


ELDORA- Trying times at the offensive end made for a tough winter for the South Hardin girls’ basketball team.

The Tigers struggled scoring points and in the end led to more losses than wins, going 4-17.

South Hardin averaged just 28.9 points per game, scoring 607 points to the opponent’s 1,052 or an average of 50.1.

“We didn’t shoot well enough this season as a team and we need to get better as a team at dribbling and getting quick shot off that are quality,” said South Hardin head coach Matt Thompson.

“We didn’t get as many wins as we anticipated this season. I would have liked six. I felt like that was a realistic number with our schedule,” he added.

The Tigers sputtered from the game’s opening tip and had an up-hill battle most nights, trailing after one quarter in 17 of the 21 games. South Hardin played 84 quarters and 58 of those ended in single digits – nine or less points, with a dozen at zero, one or two points. Unable to recover from slow starts, 13 of the losses were by 20 or more points.
