North Decatur used a fast start and a strong finish to beat the Edinburgh girls basketball team 60-26 Thursday, but the glimmers of improvement for the Lancers seem to be getting brighter by the game.
The Lancers (2-12, 0-7 Mid-Hoosier Conference) continue to be challenged in the numbers game. Three prominent players have been out for most of the season with injuries, and a fourth, freshman standout Mara Cox, is out with an injury as well.
That meant Edinburgh coach Amy Macy used a starting lineup that included two freshmen (Vanessa Hoskins and Brianna Howard), two sophomores (Megan Rooks and Mariah Weddle) and just one upperclassman, senior Brianna Schooler. It also meant the team had a rotation of only six players for most of the evening.
