While R-P’s boys shot nearly perfect from the free throw line, FC’s girls’ approach, shoot a bunch, make as many as possible, also helped lead to a “V.” For a fourth time this year, Levi Olstad’s girls attempted 40 plus free throws. The Falcons made just 18, but got a win over La Crescent 65-59. Paige Donlinger (19 points, 7-13 FTs, 6 stls) had a season-high. Madison Scheevel (15 pts, 5-11 threes) notched her third straight five-made-three game. Emma Breitsprecher (12 pts, 4 rebs, 4 asts, 6 stls) and Kandace Sikkink (8 pts, 10 rebs) helped. The Falcons are 260 of 483 for the season at the stripe (roughly 14 of 27 per game). They are 7-0 in games an opponent fouls out (unofficially). The Falcons (7-4, 12-6), winners of 8 of 10, have already exceeded last year’s win total (11-17).
