Girls basketball: Irish fall to bottom of SSC standings
The Rosemount girls basketball team had trouble shaking out of the offensive funk that led to a season-low 24 points two weeks ago at Lakeville North.
The Irish opened last week by shooting 29 percent from the field in a 61-46 road loss to an Apple Valley team they had previously beaten by eight points in late December. They took the court back at Irish Gym Friday night and fell 63-38 to a Bloomington Jefferson squad they had played to an eight-point game early last month in Bloomington.
Three straight losses has Rosemount 7-13 overall, 1-9 since the start of the new year and tied for last with Burnsville at 2-10 in the South Suburban Conference.
The Irish dipped to 28 percent field-goal shooting against Jefferson. Leading scorer Hannah Grim scored 13 points, but was just 4 of 16 from the field. Hannah Halterman added eight points and Megan Schuster provided seven points and a team-high four rebounds.
Grim notched 20 points against Apple Valley while connecting on 10 of 34 shots from the field, including 0 of 12 from beyond the three-point arc. She also led the team with four steals and three assists.
Halterman scored eight points and Taylor Grzywacz seven. Laura Dennis led the team with 10 rebounds and six blocked shots.
The Irish traveled to Prior Lake Monday and are back in action at home tomorrow night against Lakeville South.
