Girls basketball: Florence routs Coleman

COLEMAN, Wis. — Kathleen Selden netted 15 points and three other Bobcats scored in double figures as Florence downed Coleman 73-47 in non-conference girls basketball Tuesday.

“We jumped out to a quick lead and then handled their pressure, broke their press,” said Florence coach Brad Perry. “We didn’t turn the ball over a lot.”

Savannah Vassar added 14 points, Jenna Spring scored 13 and Madison Neuens tacked on 10 points in the balanced Florence attack.

“It was a team effort,” Perry said. “They all played really hard.”

Although the score was lopsided, it was a physical game. Florence was whistled for 26 fouls and Coleman 19.

The Bobcats will play at home Tuesday, Dec. 4, against Laona-Wabeno.

Florence JV won 36-32.

Florence 41 32 — 73
