Horsley’s career night leads Teays Valley past Northland

By Brad Morris

Alyssa Horsley wasn’t perfect on Monday, but the Teays Valley junior guard certainly was pretty close.

Horsley drained 13 of 14 (92.9 percent) shots she attempted en route to a career-high 31 points, leading Teays Valley to a 63-24 non-league rout of visiting Northland.

“It was a great team win,” Teays Valley coach Trevor Younkin said. “Alyssa was just on fire all night and only missed one shot.

“The team knew Alyssa was on fire and they kept feeding her the basketball. I couldn’t ask for a more unselfish team. They are truly devoted to each other.”

Teays Valley jumped out to an 18-7 lead after a period of play.

Horsley knocked down four baskets during the run, including the first of her five three-pointers, to finish the period with nine points.

Teays Valley continued its offensive in the second quarter to stretch its lead to 41-9 at the break.

Horsley knocked down a pair of threes and finished the quarter with 10 points, while Abby Tier also connected on a pair of triples and tallied eight points.

Teays Valley also was extremely successful on the defensive end in the opening half, limiting Northland to just two field goals, two three-pointers from Jaya Sheppard during the first quarter, and only two free throws courtesy of Danice Daffour in the second quarter.

Younkin followed Horsley’s big night with 10 points, Tier tallied eight and Gabrielle Watkins added seven.

Sheppard contributed 11 points to lead Northland (4-3)

The Vikings (5-1) resume Mid-State League Buckeye Division play on Friday when they host Circleville (4-2).
