The Marceline Lady Tigers' basketball team rolled North Shelby (6-10) on Friday night, 58-37, to pick up its sixth win in the past seven games.
The Tigers scored the first 10 points of the game, but took just a six-point lead heading into the halftime break. A 17-4 fourth quarter sealed the deal for Marceline, and the Tigers -- now 10-7 on the season -- host winless Novinger on Tuesday evening.
In a physical game on Friday night, the Tigers dominated the offensive glass, getting second-chance looks time and time again throughout the evening.
"We did a great job of boxing out, and we just kept putting it back up," freshman forward Ramzee Bruner said. "We've gotten some wins in the past few weeks, and we're going to keep what we have going."
Bruner finished with 10 points, and she and Jaylea Bixenman both posted double-digit rebounds. Bixenman also finished with 10 points, and Kenzie Stahl led the Tigers with 16 points and six steals. Maycee Edgar finished with eight points.
After Tuesday's game versus Novinger, the Tigers will play a conference schedule for the remainder of the regular season.
"If we keep that up, we're going to have some good luck down the road," Marceline coach Jordan Beck said. "We didn't hit a lot of shots, but we outran them a little bit tonight. We played well in transition, and we made shots fall when we needed them to count. We didn't force much.
"Down the stretch here in the second half of the season, I think we're poised and ready to be playing some of our best basketball. We just have to go out and take care of business."
