EVANSVILLE — Lexi Detweiler scored 18 points and the South Knox girls forced Evansville Christian into 31 turnovers in a 51-34 victory Saturday.

Reserves Adrianne Rusch and Hallie Kirk added seven points for the Spartans (5-9), as 10 players scored and the bench was responsible for 27 points. The Lady Eagles, not an IHSAA-affiliated team, were paced by Addison Grubb's 14 points.

Kirk had all seven of her points in the first quarter, fueling a 17-8 start. South Knox extended the lead to 34-14 and 44-17 in the middle two quarters. Detweiler tallied seven in the second quarter, and Rusch had five in the third quarter.

"Getting the win was good. We got to see a bunch of rotations and worked on things we needed to work on," Spartans coach Hollie Eaves said. "It was definitely an adjustment with the pace of the game. It took us awhile to settle in."

No junior varsity game was played.

The Spartans host Wood Memorial at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday.
