Emporia's girls basketball team only made 16 field goals in Monday night's Centennial League road game at Hayden, but the Spartans got the most out of its buckets, hitting 11 3-pointers on the way to a 50-29 win.
Juniors Allie Baker and Gracie Gilpin hit four 3-pointers apiece to tie for team-high scoring honors with 14 points while senior Macey Adams hit two 3s and finished with 8 points.
Baker hit 3 treys in the first half as the Spartans, 13-6 overall and 10-4 in the league, led by as many as 18 points en route to a 25-15 halftime advantage and Gilpin hit 3 3s after halftime as Emporia fought through a third-quarter Hayden rally and pulled away down the stretch to lead by 23 points.
