On 17 occasions this year, FCJ covered b-ball teams have had teammates each score 20 in a game. Kingsland’s sister tandem of Lauren and Ellie Buchholtz has now done so thrice. Versus LeRoy-Ostrander, it was a one-sided affair with the Buchholtz’s pouring in the points. Ellie B. scored 17 in the first nine minutes or so. The Knights put 50 up in the first half (50-26). To start the second, Lauren B. scored 20 points in the first nine or so minutes. With Ellie getting her second 30-point game (31 pts, 9 rebs, 6 asts) and Lauren her third straight 20-plus point game (24 pts, 11 rebs, 7 asts), the Knights prevailed 90-46. Kingsland had four in double-figures, as Shelby Beck (11 pts, 8 rebs, 4 asts) and Sam Wernimont (11 pts) helped. Wernimont combined with Ellie B. to hit six threes in the first nine minutes, stoking a 28-13 lead. Over the past three games (all wins), Lauren and Ellie have combined to score 157 points (27 PPG and 25.3 PPG respectively). The Knights improved to 6-3, 11-7.
