Stingy defense and a second-half offensive explosion was the recipe for success Saturday as the Clinton Lady Maroons defeated Prairie Central 45-26 for third place at the Riverton Holiday Classic.
The Lady Maroons were led by Mallory Cyrulik with 16 points and 10 rebounds. Ryty Dupont-Barlow almost had a double-double as well, finishing with 10 points and nine rebounds. Seven different Lady Maroons scored in the win.
Clinton finished 2-1 at Riverton and saw Clinton's Cyrulik and Claudia Workman named to the all-tournament team.
