CARTERVILLE - The John A. Logan College women's basketball team had no trouble disposing of Lincoln Land, 93-49, in opening-round play of the Logan Invitational Friday evening.

Six players hit for double figures in the rout as led by sophomore post player Alison Webb and freshman guard Haley Darnell, both of Goreville. Madelyn Rigdon followed with 12 points. Sarah Bailey, Deje Mooney and Hailee Lampley knocked down 10 apiece. Kalai Trice and Abbi Denton notched seven each and Shelby Beussink added five.

As a team, the Vols (2-2) converted a sizzling 36-of-57 shots from the field or 63 percent. They were also 5-of-10 from long range and 16-of-20 from the free-throw line or 80 percent. Logan also dominated the boards with 42 rebounds to the Loggers' 16.

Danville won the first game, edging past Kennedy-King, 71-70. JALC will meet Danville at 3 p.m. today.

"Tonight, we got on Lincoln Land early and never let up," said Vols head coach Marty Hawkins. "We just shot the ball extremely well and also defended the dribble much better than we have been. It was a good overall team effort. Anytime you get three players off the bench score in double figures, it's a good night."
