UTICA — The Utica Redskins put on a virtual basketball clinic on Thursday night, as they smothered the visiting Highland Scots, 72-24, in nonconference girls high school basketball action.
The Redskins (9-2) led with the long bomb. Taylor Dush (nine points), Kelly Overton (six points) and Tory Minton all hit 3-pointers in the opening quarter and the Redskins grabbed a 13-0 lead. Minton led all scorers with 18 points.
“We were ready to play and we got out on Highland,” said Utica coach Terry Logue. “We got out on our break, which really helped. We really pushed the ball and our defense created a lot of opportunities for us.”
Speaking of opportunities, the Redskins racked up nine steals and outrebounded the Scots on the offensive side, 10-6. Dush had three of the Redskins’ steals.
