Rose scores 30 in Dexter win

Friday, January 31, 2003

DEXTER --Senior Amy Rose scored 30 points, leading Dexter to a 60-36 win over Charleston on Thursday night.

Rose drilled four 3-pointers and hit 6-of-7 from the free throw line in the 24-point victory.

Her performance fell just two points shy of a career best, when she put up 32 as a freshman.

"Amy was just hot from all over the field tonight," said Dexter head coach Gavin Miller. "She was just on. Everything she put up went in. She's done well in the last six or seven games for us."

In the first two quarters, Dexter developed an inside game with 6-foot sophomore Rachel Blunt. She scored 17 points in the game, with 12 coming in the first half.

But while Blunt shined, standout Katie Dunlap was non-existent For the first time in her outstanding high school career, she didn't score.

"She's kind of in a deep funk right now," said Miller. "She's getting doubled quite a bit because of what she's done in the past. Also, other people are stepping up and she's not getting as many looks as she used to. She just didn't get on track tonight."

For Charleston, Missy Whitney led the way with 12 points. Dexter (15-3) will have its mettle tested on Monday with a road trip to Poplar Bluff.

"We're looking forward to it," said Miller. "We want to go over and represent Dexter very well. Like I told the girls, if we aren't mentally beat before we get there, I think we can play them a decent game."

PORTAGEVILLE -- Janil Booker scored 14 points while Faith Long and Ashley Brown each contributed 12, leading Portageville to a 62-19 win over Senath-Hornersville on Thursday night.

The Lady Bulldogs jumped out to a 17-4 lead and never looked back, outscoring Senath 13-6 in the second quarter, 20-6 in the third, then 12-3 in the fourth.

For Senath, Stephanie Cunningham led the way with six points. Portageville (4-7) will travel to Dexter on Tuesday.
