Game Recap: It was a game of big runs. Whitko led 12-4 after 1. West Noble led 21-16 at the half. West Noble extended their lead to 13 with 6:15 to go in regulation before Whitko called a timeout and battled back, actually taking the lead at 44-41 with less than a minute to go. Whitko jumped out to a 3-point lead in overtime but 6’0 center Jordan Hall went down with a severe ankle injury with a little over 2:00 left in OT after providing 8 points and close to 20 rebounds. Within seconds 5’10 forward Josie Sparks fouled out for Whitko leaving them with primarily guards. They still battled but West Noble did a nice job of hitting their free throws down the stretch, going 7-8 in OT (16-25 in the game), while Whitko was 3-12 on the game and 0-4 in OT, including missing the front end of two 1-and-1’s.
