02/12/2016 - GIRLS BASKETBALL: Cates' Threes Help Rockets Shine On Senior Night

By Kellan Heavican

Sophomore Mariah Cates stole the show on Lincoln Northeast senior night hitting in three 3’s in the first half, including a first quarter-buzzer beater, Friday night at Ed Johnson Gym.

The Rockets (12-8) outscored Lincoln High 19-4 in the third frame to roll to a 78-49 win. 

The Links fell behind by 14 points thanks to an Erica Craig put back with 3:03 left in the first half. But, the Lincoln High closed the first half on a 12-3 run.

Kalli Novak converted on a three-point play and Nya Gotlock hit a three to cut the lead to 39-34.  But Nigeria Jones buried a 26 foot shot at the buzzer to give Northeast a 42-36 advantage at the break.

Lincoln High (5-15) fell behind in the third quarter thanks to three’s from Senior Megan Sattler and by Cates. Those buckets made it 54-36 with three minutes left in the third quarter. Lincoln High couldn’t find an answer.

Novak finished with a game-high 17 points, 15 came in the first half. Cates finished with 16 points for Northeast thanks in part to four three pointers.  Aaliya Evans tallied 13 for the Rockets.
