“I liked just us fighting through,” Lake City coach James Anderson said. “We got cold from the floor, and we had to do it a different way. We amped up the pressure. I liked that we got down and it pushed us to see how we responded.”

Kendall Pickford hit five 3-pointers and led Lake City (14-1) with 15 points. Emberlyn Reynolds added 13 points, Sophia Zufelt 10 for the Timberwolves.

RATHDRUM — Addie Kiefer had 27 points, 10 rebounds, five steals and four assists for the Hawks, who held off the Scotties in overtime in a nonleague game at Hawk Court.

“We pushed it to a five-point lead in overtime and Freeman chipped away,” said Lakeland coach Steve Seymour, whose team went 1 for 9 from the free throw line in overtime. “We had a chance to get out of there a little earlier, but it was a good win for us.”

Kiefer scored 13 of her 27 points in the first quarter for Lakeland.

“We forced a few turnovers and did a good job of attacking the basket,” Seymour said. “Freeman did a good job of taking away what was working in the first quarter. It was really a back and forth game.”
