HAWESVILLE, Ky.—Hot shooting by Hilarie Jones propelled Hancock County to an early lead as the Hornets beat Tell City 55-29 in girls basketball Thursday.
Jones, a senior forward, scored 10 points in the first 10 minutes as the Hornets jumped to a 13-6 lead.
She scored 17 of the Hornets’ first 22 points on three three-point baskets, two low-post moves, a fast-break layup off a steal, and two free throws.
“She can flat shoot it,” said Tell City Coach John Lyons. “And she posts up well. She’s a good player.”
