OMAHA -- The Beatrice girls basketball team notched a 14 point win over Omaha Gross on Saturday.

The Lady O defeated the Cougars 58-44, improving their record to 10-7 on the season.

Omaha Gross led 7-6 after the first quarter and 20-17 at half time.

Beatrice used the three pointer in the third quarter to take a 41-31 lead. They knocked down six three pointers in the quarter, including two each from Addie Barnard and Haley Sexton and one each from Michaela Jones and Mak Hatcliff.

They would maintain that momentum in the final quarter to get the 58-44 win.

"When we moved on offense and move the ball, we take better shots," said Beatrice Assistant Coach Ben Essam. "When we attack the rim smart, we are better on offense. We also went 20 for 24 from the free throw line."

Jones led the Lady O with 21 points, seven rebounds and five assists. Barnard had 13 points, Carley Leners had 12 points, Sexton had seven points and 11 rebounds and Hatcliff had five points.

The Lady O will be in action again on Friday when they travel to Grand Island Northwest. They will wrap up the regular season on Saturday when they host Omaha Mercy.
