ANSONIA — Morgan Haney had a big week last week.
But is the Miami East senior saving her best for last?
Haney, who set the school’s single-game scoring record on Jan. 7 in a win over Urbana, broke her own record on Thursday night, dropping 41 points on Ansonia in a 74-44 Cross County Conference victory over the Tigers on the road.
The Vikings (12-4, 8-1 CCC) only led 11-9 after the first quarter, but Haney took control of the game from there, almost outscoring Ansonia on her own as East took a 39-23 halftime lead, built a 58-31 lead after three and outscored the Tigers 16-8 in the fourth to seal it.
Haney added nine assists, nine steals and five rebounds to her 41-point effort, and Camryn Miller added 17 points, five rebounds and four assists. Emily Adkins had four points, Cadence Gross had three points and seven rebounds, Lauren Wright had three points and Paxton Hunley, Rori Hunley and Kyleigh Kirby each scored two.
Miami East hosts Bethel Thursday. The home matchup against Tri-Village that was postponed on Jan. 12 — a key matchup in the CCC standings — was also rescheduled for Jan. 29.
