Late jumper caps Knightstown's comeback victory vs. Edinburgh




Sophomore guard Kori Biehl knocked down a 15-foot jump shot with only six seconds on the clock to lift Knightstown to a come-from-behind 55-54 win against host Edinburgh Tuesday night.

The Lancers led by as many as 19 points late in the third quarter, but fell victim to their own mistakes with nine costly turnovers in the final period.

Those miscues turned into easy points by Biehl on the outside and junior center Emily Thomas, who burned the Lancers with a game-high 23 points.

Thomas scored eight of Knightstown’s 13 points in the first quarter that ended in a 13-13 tie.

The Lancers took control in the second period led by Jennifer Stinson with a break-away layup off of a feed from senior guard Maile Cox. On the next possession, Stison and Cox teamed up again on a fast-break enabling Stinson to successfully convert a three-point play.

In the same period, Cox hit back-to-back 3-pointers to give Edinburgh a 31-17 advantage.
