---- — There was nothing Owen Valley could do to stop Lebanon sophomore Kristen Spolyar Saturday night.

Spolyar scored 37 points on 15 of 18 shooting while playing just 2 1/2 quarters in a 64-29 blowout.

"Kristen came out and she was in a zone tonight," Lebanon head coach Beth DeVinney said. "It was one of those nights that everything you put up goes in. Obviously it was a tremendous scoring game for her."

It was just the second time all season the Tigers had back-to-back games.

Lebanon is 4-0 in those games. DeVinney said it was good preparation for the postseason.

"Playing back-to-back games is hard," DeVinney said. "Obviously they had to do it too and they had to travel, and that takes a lot out of you, but it was kind of like a sectional or regional type thing and you have to get your kids ready for that in case that happens to you. We wanted to make sure we had back-to-back games on our schedule to see how we would react."

The Tigers showed no fatigue early. Lebanon shot 10 of 15 in the first quarter and built a 24-8 lead, getting 16 points from Spolyar in the process.
