MIDDLETOWN, Ind. —
Krathwohl and Hudson scored 10 of the Raiders’ 23 first-half points, while Rudy was recuperating from a mid-court collision that resulted in a nose bleed and a delay in the game for cleanup.
With her nose plugged with cotton, Rudy returned to action and erupted in the third quarter with 12 of her game-high 15 points. On three occasions, she stripped an Argyll ball handler and scored on with a layup.
“I was not going to let a nose bleed defeat my game, I wanted to help my team do good. ” Rudy said. “There is a defect in everyone, some are easier to read, and I just read theirs.”
Rudy finished shooting 6-of-11 from the field, including 2-of-5 from beyond the arc.
“It was a little more difficult (to put our foot on the pedal) today because of break,” Rudy said. “We have been sluggish in practice the last couple days. I think this is probably one of the toughest games to come out of the gates in.”
Krathwohl finished with 12 points, and Hudson added 10.
Shenandoah outscored M-G 30-8 in the paint.
“It is awesome,” Rudy said of having two tall post players. “When I played middle school the tallest girl on the team was 5-7. It is a thousand times better because you can rely on them more and don’t have to take over the game.”
Bethani Herniak led the Argylls with nine points, seven of which came in the second half. LaVon Haney added seven.
Shenandoah will host Union County on Thursday at 7:30 p.m., while Madison-Grant’s next contest, also a home game, is against Elwood on Monday at 2:30 p.m.
