Veldhuizen keys Osky blowout

Courier sports staff

OSKALOOSA — Kena Veldhuizen poured in 27 points and the 15th-ranked (Class 4A) Oskaloosa girls basketball team trounced Newton, 57-38 Friday in a Little Hawkeye Conference game.

“She drove the ball extremely well,” coach Steve Kaisand said. “If they laid off her, she would hit the jumper.”

Taylor Crawford added seven points to Oskaloosa’s final tally and grabbed a team-best seven rebounds. In addition, Taylor Richardson scored six and Allie Christenson handed out a team-best three assists.

The Indians started strong, jumping out to a 17-8 lead at the start of the first quarter; a lead that would only grow in the next two quarter.

“We came out putting a lot of pressure on, making them [Newton] play a little faster than they wanted to,” Kaisand said. “We did a great job of attacking the rim and switching on defense when we needed to, and that helped us jump out to an early lead.”

The Indians (10-2, 4-1) play host to Washington, ranked ninth in Class 5A and also 10-2 this season, tonight in non-conference action.
