02/19/2015 - GIRLS SUBDISTRICT BASKETBALL: Christian's 16 Threes Doom Malcolm

By Jeff Motz

WAVERLY---There must have been a hole in the ceiling of the Waverly High School gym Thursday night.

To use the basketball term "raining threes" is an understatement compared to how the Lincoln Christian girls basketball team was shooting behind the three-point arc.  

The Crusaders connected on 16 three-pointers and blew open their Class C1 Subdistrict 3 final with Malcolm with a 74-46 victory to improve to 22-4.  Christian will meet Fairbury next Friday for the C1 District 2 championship.

The 16 threes is a Class C1 record, but is two short of the 18 threes set by Seward in Class B back in 2012-2013.

Sparking the outside attack was 5-5 freshman guard Chloe Dworak, who hit seven three's on the night and finished with a game-high 23 points to lead Christian.  Three of her shots were well beyond the NBA range.  

Malcolm (17-8) kept it close in the first quarter, trailing 23-17 thanks in part to Tessa Dunse's nine points in the quarter.  She wound up with 11 points in the game.  

But comparing what happened in the opening period and in the second quarter was like comparing apples to oranges.  Christian mounted a 20-6 second quarter run to bust out to a 43-23 halftime lead behind Dworak's 18 first half points.  

Credit the great ball movement from Coach Nick Orduna's team to use the extra pass and find the open shot on the perimeter.  All that did was spell trouble for Malcolm's defense.  Christian mounted a 22-6 third quarter run for a 65-29 lead heading into the final period.

Malcolm outscored Christian 17-9 in the fourth quarter behind eight of Hayley Densberger's team-high 14 points.

Aside from Dworak's scoring performance, two other freshman starters also scored in double figures for the Crusaders.  Taytem Coleman had 18 points and Emily Hollenbeck finished with 12 points.  Sophomore guard Mollie Shepard ended with 10 points in the game.
