Osage takes down Warsaw
Osage hosted Warsaw Monday night in Tri-County Conference action and the Indians dispatched the Wildcats by a final score of 66-37.
Osage led just 19-12 after the first quarter, but a 15-4 run in the second gave the Indians more of a comfortable 34-16 lead by halftime and they did not relinquish it the rest of the way.
“I do think that a key to keeping us ahead and extending the lead was our defense. Our press bothered Warsaw and we got some transition points,” Osage coach Scott Rowland said. “When we switched to full court man, it also seemed to rush them a bit and we limited their possessions.”
Rose Colonius paced Osage with 18 points and seven assists, Sara Wolf finished with 13 points, Kerrigan Gamm knocked down 10, Payton Good added eight and Karli Kempf put up seven.
“I was pleased with the way everyone played. I thought that we ran offense well and got good looks,” Rowland noted. “They did not always go in, but getting the shot is the most important thing. It was a good win for us in conference.”
Osage (16-4, 2-1 Tri-County Conference) will visit Versailles on Thursday at 6 p.m.

Coley Rezabek and Natalie Basham both knocked down 16 points for the Lakers, Abbie Miller added 12 and Megan Vest contributed 11.
Camdenton (13-5, 3-1 Ozark Conference) will be back on the road again Thursday night when the Lakers take on Glendale at 7 p.m.
