#13 (1A) Caston on the road to play undefeated #3 (3A) Benton Central tonight

Caston faces its toughest girls basketball challenge tonight.  The Comets, ranked number 13 in the latest 1A basketball poll, travel to undefeated, 3rd-ranked Benton Central.


Caston has won three straight and five of its last seven games.  The only losses in that stretch were by four points to a 12-win Pioneer team and by two points to Knox (10-9).


Caston is being led in scoring by sophomore Isabel Scales (13.7 ppg) and senior Maddi Smith (12.7 ppg).


Benton Central is 19-0.  Add to that, the Bison are doubling up their opponents in season scoring average.  Benton Central averages just over 62 ppg while allowing less than 32 on the defensive end.


On January 6, the Bison escaped McCutcheon with a double-OT win, 50-44.  It's only the second time in 19 games that an opponent has been within single digits.  The other was a November 20 Lafayette Tournament championship game win over Twin Lakes, 44-37.
