HURON — The James Valley Christian School Lady Vikings finished third in this week’s 281 Conference Tournament with a 40-34 victory over the Wessington Springs Lady Spartans.

James Valley Christian erased a four-point halftime deficit with a 20-10 third-quarter outburst which allowed the Vikings to go into the final quarter with a 31-25 lead.

Jaclyn and Hannah Loban keyed the comeback, each scoring nine points during the quarter to account for 18 of the 20 points.

Both finished with a game-high 15 points. Jaclyn Loban also grabbed eight rebounds and had four assists while Hannah Loban had five steals.

Betsy Nelson led the Vikings in rebounding with eight.

The Lady Spartans played great defense in the first half, holding James Valley Christian to just three first-half field goals and just 11 points overall before the comeback.

Devin Tebay had a double-double for the Lady Spartans scoring 11 and grabbing 10 rebounds, while Shyanne Kopfman had five points and 12 rebounds along with Cassidy Musick who had eight points and 11 rebounds.

Wessington Springs dominated on the backboards. However, they made just over 30 percent of their two-point field goals and all eight of their three-point field goals. They also struggled from the line in a game where they lost by six. They were just 4-of-15 from the line.

James Valley Christian (7-4) will not be in action again until Friday, Jan. 25, when they host Sully Buttes.

For the Lady Spartans (4-7) they are on the road Saturday at Redfield-Doland.
