     Coming close to its first Great Basin Conference win of the season, the Wood River High School girls’ varsity basketball team cooled off down the homestretch and fell 42-36 to visiting Minico Wednesday night on the Hailey court.

     Wood River led 16-14 at halftime sparked by season-best scoring efforts by junior Kenya Schott (10 points), Rory Cole (12 points, 9 rebounds, 2 steals, 2 assists, 1 block) and freshman Blair Radford (9 points, 4 rebounds, 1 steal).

     But Minico (6-10, 3-3 league) rallied back in the second half and capitalized on 21 Wolverine turnovers to sweep the season series with the Hailey girls. Wood River (5-8, 0-6) dropped its seventh game in the last eight decisions.

     The Spartans out-scored Wood River 11-4 at the free throw line, although the Wolverines won the battle of the boards 24-17. Hailey junior Samantha Sutton (3 points, 5 rebounds, 2 steals, 1 block) pitched in for the home team.

     Wood River visits Burley (9-7, 3-3) today, Friday for another league game and goes to league-leading Twin Falls (13-2, 6-0) on Tuesday. Second-place Jerome (13-2, 5-1) nipped host Canyon Ridge (2-12, 1-5) by a 54-47 score on Wednesday.
