CARROLLTON INVITATIONAL TOURNAMENT

LEBANON 55, MARQUETTE CATHOLIC 41: A 19-point performance from Krista Bass helped undefeated Lebanon to a 55-41 win over Marquette Catholic in a semifinal game of the Carrollton Invitational Thursday night; the Explorers fell to 15-7 on the year, while the Greyhounds improved to 22-0.

Lebanon head girls coach Chad Cruthis said: “We took steps forward tonight and moved ball better did in other two games in the tournament. We preach defense each night. I thought tonight we did a really good job taking away some of their looks.”

Marquette head girls coach Lee Green said: “They (Lebanon) are a great team; it is tough to guard them and keep them off the glass. Lebanon has great guards and post play. Their transition defense killed us and did a lot better getting back in second half.”
