NASHVILLE — South Decatur kept if close for most of the first half, but Brown County pulled away Tuesday night for a 65-42 victory in the girls basketball season-opener for both teams.

The Cougars went 11 of 20 from the field in the first half and trailed 31-24 at the break. But South Decatur went only 7 of 23 in the second half and was outscored 34-18.

”We got in a little foul trouble in the second half, and they went to a zone,” South Decatur coach Amy Macy said. “We just had some calls not go our way, and we kind of got tired a little bit, and they had some fast-break layups. We only have seven players, so we have to get in shape fast.”

Sasha Robinson led the Eagles with 22 points. Rebecca Wedan and Whitney Williamson each added 10.

Sam Miller led the Cougars with 15 points, while Ashley Johannigman added 13. Megan Niese had seven assists, and Julia Miller tallied seven steals.
