February 10, 2004

The Burgin girls recovered from a slow start to rout West Jessamine 62-37 Monday at Nicholasville.

Taylor Bottoms and Stephanie Stewart had 16 points each for the Lady Bulldogs, who didn't take long to overcome an early run of cold shooting.

"We missed our first seven or eight shots, but then we got in a rhythm and played a real nice basketball game after that," Burgin coach Keith Monson said.

Burgin (13-10) outscored West Jessamine (5-16) 17-4 in the third quarter to go up 43-25.

The Lady Bulldogs shot 39.7 percent (23-for-58) overall and were 12-for-22 at the free-throw line.

Stewart had 12 rebounds and Bottoms had 10; Burgin had 38 boards in all.

"We did a good job on the boards," Monson said.

"In the first quarter, we took it to the basket, got to the line and got them in foul trouble," Casey coach Randy Salyers said. "In the second quarter, they switched to a zone. We had some good looks against the zone, but we just couldn't hit anything."
