GREENFIELD — Kenzie Gustin made sure Pendleton Heights got off to a fast start against Greenfield-Central Friday. Then the Arabians’ senior swingman put the game out of the host Cougars’ reach to start the second half.
Gustin, the Hoosier Heritage Conference’s leading scorer, finished with 28 points to lift Pendleton Heights to a 67-48 win over G-C in both teams’ conference tip-offs.
“When Kenzie knows I’m in the gym, she just lights me up like a Christmas tree,” G-C coach Doug Laker said. “She’s a great kid, great family. I’m happy for her success, just not happy when she lights us up.”
The last time Gustin was on G-C’s court, she bucketed 23 points to help end the Cougars’ season as Pendleton Heights took a 55-45 sectional quarterfinal victory Feb. 7. In a 60-54 regular season win by the host Arabians Nov. 18 of last year, Gustin had 17 points.
