SOMERSET - A banged-up Casey County went cold from the outside in a 43-38 loss to Pulaski Southwestern Monday.
The loss overshadowed a standout game for Beth Patterson, who finished with 19 points and 12 rebounds.
The Rebels (0-1) were without three of their top eight players due to injuries, and starting guard Lindsey Hoskins had practiced only once in the past three weeks.
Casey's outside shooting was almost nonexistent. The Rebels were just 1-for-13 from behind the 3-point line in the game.
"We just couldn't get anything to fall from outside," Casey coach Randy Salyers said.
Tabitha Yaden added 13 points, seven rebounds and three steals for Casey.
Casey was 14-for-45 from the field for 31.1 percent and hit 9-of-14 free throws (64.2 percent). Each team grabbed 39 rebounds. Salyers was pleased with his team's ballhandling as the Rebels had only nine turnovers.
CASEY (0-1) - Lindsey Hoskins 2, Beth Patterson 19, Bethany Snow 4, Tabitha Yaden 13.
