Will Avery led the Eagles with 17 points while Tad Clark dropped in 15 points and Mason Curtis added 10 points.

Murray girls hand M-U first conference loss:

MURRAY – The Moulton-Udell girls basketball team started strong against Bluegrass foe Murray, outscoring the Lady Mustangs 16-11 in the first quarter, only to see Murray finish the game on a 42-25 run to take a 53-41 victory.

Lisa Hetzler and Ginny Gordon each scored 13 points for the Lady Eagles while Gordon also pulled down a team-high 10 rebounds.

“We had a great start as our offense was crisp and we were making good decisions with the ball,” said M-U head coach Jason Ogden. “Our offense was stale in the second and third quarters and we turned it over too many times. The kids fought all 32 minutes and I’m proud of that. It was our first conference loss so we are still tied for first. We just need to take care of our part and win out now,” added Ogden.

The Lady Eagles (7-4, 5-1) battled the Seymour/Russell winner on Monday night in the Bluegrass Conference quarterfinals at Murray.
