BOONVILLE — Freshman Hallie Treva continued her hot play by hitting 10 of her 13 shots from the field on the way to 24 points to lead the Lady Huskies to a 47-33 win over Starmount on Tuesday.

Jayce Miller chipped in nine points, six rebounds and three assists. Chloe Sullivan added eight points to go with seven assists, two steals and two rebounds, Amber Miller scored four points and Sam Woods was held to just two points. While her shot might not have been falling, Woods still found other ways to contribute with five rebounds and four steals.

Ashe got a lot of its points thanks to some great defense that forced 28 Starmount turnovers. Ashe scored 21 points off of those miscues.

The Lady Huskies are now 11-8 overall and 5-4 in the Mountain Valley Athletic Conference.

Starmount 56, Ashe 40

Ashe shot just 29 percent from the field and had to play without leading scorer Judd Price, who missed the game battling a foot injury.

Junior Grant Thompson stepped his game up offensively to try and keep the Huskies in it. He scored 17 points and snagged five rebounds. Fellow junior Caleb Key had nine points, Malachi Poe scored seven points and had a team-leading seven rebounds and three steals and Jarod Carlton scored three points.
