Cold shooting betrays Jeff in sectional loss to Marion

February 10, 2012
Lafayette Jefferson High School



LOGANSPORT -- Lafayette Jeff coach Geoff Salmon could just shake his head in disbelief.

His team executed the game plan perfectly, yet saw its season come to a close with a 51-41 loss to Marion at the Class 4A, Sectional 7 tournament at the Berry Bowl.

The Bronchos attempted 21 more field goals, outrebounded the Giants by seven and matched Marion with 13 turnovers apiece. But Jeff shot just 27.3 percent in the final game for its five seniors.

"I thought we played harder, I thought we outrebounded them, we didn't turn the ball over and we got good looks," Salmon said. "I don't feel like we forced any shots or the wrong people were taking shots. We just weren't shooting that well."

Marion rallied from a six-point halftime deficit to take the lead late in the third quarter and went into the fourth tied at 31.

That's when junior guard Chantria Phuong took over.

Phuong, who averages less than seven points per game, scored 10 of her game-high 18 in the final eight minutes to push the Giants into Friday's semifinal with No. 8 McCutcheon.

"Earlier in the year, she averaged about 15 (points) and she then all the sudden she hit a slump where she didn't score as much," Marion coach Jerry Freshwater said. "She continued to fight and look for her shot. Luckily, she made them tonight. She'll have to make them on Friday too."

Phuong's jumper from just inside the 3-point line gave Marion a 35-32 lead, and her 3-pointer with 3:04 to go forced the Bronchos into a 39-32 hole.

Lafayette Jeff went 6:17 into the fourth quarter before scoring its first field goal of the period, a Sheridan Steiner layup.

"We just couldn't hit anything," said Steiner, who led the Bronchos with 17 points and nine rebounds. "We did everything. It was just the shooting that killed us in the end."

The Bronchos finished with just three field goals in the final eight minutes and shot 15 of 55 from the field and 5 of 26 from 3-point range. Four of their five 3s came in the first half, two each by Lindsay Fox and Kelsey Simms, who helped Jeff take a 20-12 lead in the second quarter.

Jenni Graham also had nine rebounds for the Bronchos (7-15), while Krissy Bruce scored seven points, five of those in the fourth quarter. Bruce also had four steals.

Sasha Glickfield had a double-double for Marion (11-10) with 10 points and 10 rebounds. Shalay Stevens had nine points off the bench.

Lafayette Jeff kept Marion leading scorer Laura Friday off the scoreboard in the first half. Friday, who averages more than 15 points per game, finished 1 of 6 from the field and scored seven points.

"We wanted Kelsey to stay in front of her and contest shots, and Kelsey did such a good job that I am not sure she got many shot attempts," Salmon said. "And then Aliyia Kind did a good job on her in the third quarter to spell Kelsey."
