Longhorns smother Eagle Valley
EAGLE-VAIL – The Basalt Longhorns girls basketball team held Eagle Valley to five points or less in three of the four quarters and cruised to a 65-29 3A Western Slope League win here Tuesday night.
Eagle Valley mustered just 11 points in the first, third and fourth quarters combined, while Basalt never scored fewer than 14 points in a period.
Although Basalt was without starter Mariah Mulcahy due to a broken tailbone, Autumn Caughern and Lauren Redfern more than made up for her absence.
Caughern paced the Longhorns with 25 points, including three 3-pointers, while Redfern pitched in 24 points and two treys as league-leading Basalt (11-1 WSL, 14-3 overall) extended its unbeaten streak to seven games. Mulcahy is expected to return for the regular-season finale against Roaring Fork on Feb. 21.
Eagle Valley (4-8, 6-10) didn’t have a player in double figures. Brooke Baughfmann and Kelli Verderber each scored eight points.
Basalt has a week off before hosting Hotchkiss on Tuesday.
