MONDAY'S PREP ROUNDUP: Susquehannock girls outlast Northeastern for OT basketball win
Northeastern’s inability to hit overtime free throws and Susquehannock’s penchant for draining 3-pointers proved to be the difference Monday night.

The Bobcats went 1 for 7 from the charity stripe in the overtime session, when they were outscored 6-3 by the Warriors.
Susquehannock, meanwhile, converted 10 3-pointers on the night, including five from Kelsey Gemmill, who finished with 17 points.

Gemmill had 11 of her points in the second half.
Jordyn Jennings led Northeastern with 17 points, while Aleyah Starkes added 14 points. Jennings finished 6 for 8 from the foul line, but the rest of the Northeastern team was just 4 for 12 at the foul line. Susquehannock, by contrast, was 9 for 13 at the foul line.
