URBANA — Morgan Haney continues to cement her legacy with the Miami East girls basketball team.
The senior point guard — who scored her 1,000th career point earlier this season, becoming only the eighth Viking to reach that milestone since 1976 — set a new school record for points in a single game, scoring 36 Monday night at Urbana in a 71-33 non-league win.
Three Vikings were in double figures on the night as Camryn Miller hit a pair of 3s and added 12 points and Rori Hunley scored 11 points. Haney only hit one 3-pointer in the game, doing most of her work inside the arc on the night.
Miami East — which also beat Urbana 74-25 in the second game of the season during the Skeeter Classic tournament back on Nov. 24, 2018 — took a 14-7 lead after the first quarter, which grew into a 27-11 halftime lead and a 43-19 lead heading into the fourth.
The previous Viking school record for points in a single game was 34, set by Jessie Roeth. In the first win over Urbana this season, Haney missed it by one, scoring 33 points.
Miami East (10-4) travels to Newton for a Cross County Conference matchup Thursday night.
BRANDT — After Northeastern played them even in the first quarter, the Bethel Bees took control in the middle of the game, allowing only two second-quarter points defensively and then outscoring the opposition 35-4 in the third to put away a 78-30 non-league win Monday night at home.
Bethel (7-6) had five players reach double figures on the night, led by Olivia Reittinger’s 18 points. Natalie Moorman and McKenna Gray both scored 16 points, Sam Wiley added 11 and Makenna Floyd chipped in 10.
