With their star shooting guard still under the weather, the Lady Wildcats struggled to score for their second straight night at the Carolina Invitational in Charleston. Lexington was able to draw within 2 points of the Lower Richland Diamond Hornets at the end of 3 quarters, but were outscored 14-2 in the final frame and suffered a 41-27 loss.
Olivia Thompson, slowed by the flu bug, scored 7 points, well off her 20.6 average. All of Thompson’s points were scored in the first half. Brooke Foulks scored 6 for the Cats.
The Lady Cats will get a chance to avenge today’s loss when they get a rematch against Lower Richland on January 19th in the MLK Bash at Eau Claire High School.
The Charleston Invitational continues tomorrow as Lexington faces the Lions of Largo (MD) High School.
