Visiting Skyline started the game well, keeping up with Huron and ending the first quarter in a 10-10 tie.

The tight game didn't last much longer.

Huron (7-4, 5-1 SEC Red) took a 28-15 lead by halftime and cruised to the win. All 12 players on the River Rats' roster scored, led by Auzhane King's game-high nine points. Ariel Bethea added seven points, seven rebounds and four steals.

"Twelve girls scoring is the most we've ever had," Huron coach Steve Vinson said. "A lot of our scoring was ignited by our defense. We got steals and easy buckets, and we had 10 free throws in the third (quarter)."

Huron outscored Skyline 23-3 in the third quarter.

Mai Morris and Anita Vandermuelen led Skyline (5-8, 0-6 SEC Red) with seven and six points, respectively.

Pioneer had the SEC's first-place team on the ropes, leading the Kicking Mules 27-26 after three quarters. However, Bedford (10-3, 5-1 SEC Red) clinched a victory by hitting 7-of-9 free-throw attempts in the final quarter while limiting the Pioneers (7-5, 2-4 SEC Red) to just six points.

"I think it was our mental mistakes," Pioneer coach Crystal Westfield said. "We were fouling, we were not smart on defense and we were handing them the game. My kids had mental lapses that were hurting them in the fourth quarter."

Desiree Cougill led Pioneer with 12 points. Bedford's Rachel Lewandowski scored a game-high 15.
