Tonight the Lady Rockets had a tough challenge in front of them as they hosted the Lewistown Lady Indians.  Both teams jumped out to a hot start and would be tied at 14 after one quarter.  But then the Lady Rockets started to pick up their aggression level and started out playing Lewistown on both sides of the court.  This intensity level was something I thought this team was capable of but could they do it without committing a bunch of turnovers.  Well, Rushville-Industry was able to hold on to the ball and held the lead the rest of the way through this game for the 70-61 win.  Delanie Monn led the Lady Indians in scoring tonight with 19 while Tabitha Crow had a second straight game as the top scorer for Rushville-Industry with 22 points.  Rushville shot only 39% from the field but shot a great 60% from the free throw line.  But the number that stands out is that the Lady Rockets only had 23 turnovers tonight.  For a team that is averaging around 30 turnovers per game, this is an outstanding achievement that they need to keep up to continue winning.
