The Whitewater Girls’ Basketball Team beat Delavan-Darien 57-52 Thursday night, February 1, in overtime. The game was the start of the second round of conference action for the Whippets.
Building off some cold shooting for Delavan-Darien to start the game, Whitewater used great defense and a few outside shots to jump to a 21-4 lead to begin the game. As the game went along, Delavan-Darien slowly started to come back into the game, until they finally took a lead with a few minutes to play. Whitewater was able to get a few key stops down the stretch and make a few free throws but missed a chance to win the game at the buzzer. In overtime, the Whippets outscored the Comets 7-2 to win the game.
Stallings led the Comets with 31, and Logterman finished the night with 12. The Whippets had balanced scoring with Navejas (16), Grosinske (14), DePorter (11), and Gillette (9) leading the way.
Starting with a make-up game on Saturday, February 3 (home against Edgerton at 5:00 p.m.), Whitewater plays six games in the next 12 days to end the regular season.
