Oskaloosa falls to Knoxville in LHC girls hoops

OSKALOOSA — Despite cracking the 40-point barrier for the first time this season, the Oskaloosa girls basketball team could not crack into the win column in the Little Hawkeye Conference on Tuesday. Knoxville used an 8-0 run to end the first quarter and a 9-2 run in the second half to pull away for a 53-41 win against the Indians.

“This was definitely our best night executing offensively. We got a lot of rebounds, which got us a lot of second-chance opportunities,” Oskaloosa head girls basketball coach Steve Kaisland said. “Those were the two big runs that really cost us.”

Alexis Westercamp produced a huge double-double for Oskaloosa with 17 points and 15 rebounds. Ricki Hall had 19 points for Knoxville to lead all scorers while the Panthers also got a 15-point effort from Ashley Hawkshead to help seal the victory.

Oskaloosa (1-14, 0-9) is back in action on the road Tuesday night at Pella Christian.
