Bishop Kearney 73, Mercy 60
Marianna Freeman led a Kings second half charge and scored a game high 27 points to lead BK over Mercy in Brighton Wednesday night.
Kaia Goode added 25 points of her own. She and Freeman keyed a 17-3 third quarter run that flipped a four point deficit to a nine point lead. The Kings held Mercy at arm’s length the rest of the game.
Katie Whitaker had 22 points and 12 rebounds to pace Mercy. Audrey Hintz also had a double-double with 11 points and 13 boards for the Monarchs.
With Saniaa Wilson and Taylor Norris unavailable, the only size at BK’s disposal was sophomore Caydence Hadley. She played well, but fouled out less than a minute into the fourth quarter with the Kings only up by nine.
Kearney instead swarmed the 6-foot-5 inch Whitaker with double teams and made enough shots in the fourth quarter to prevent a comeback. It made the win a bit more impressive.
The Kings have not got many games in, but they’ve won them all. The second win over Mercy this season makes Bishop Kearney 5-0.
The Monarchs had a four game win streak snapped and dropped to 7-3. Their only Section Five losses this year are against BK.
