SM North girls hoops tops Basehor-Linwood, 51-47, in home opener
December 5, 2017
While the Shawnee Mission North girls basketball team led by three at halftime against Basehor-Linwood despite the one-two punch of sophomore LeLe Love and senior Hannah Redick doing all of the scoring, the Indians knew that they would need a more balanced effort to come away with their first win of the season. After Love and Redick scored 12 points apiece in the first half, SM North’s stingy perimeter defense helped create some easy offense for the Indians, as they earned a 51-47 win in their home opener. It also was the first victory at SM North for coach Amanda McNeill. Love led SM North with 25 points and 12 rebounds.
