The host Hudson girls basketball team fell to 7-11 overall and 1-6 in the Northeast Ohio Conference Valley Division after losing a 72-58 decision to Twinsburg Feb. 5 at Ray "Buck" Hyser Gymnasium.

The Lady Tigers improved to 11-9 overall and 5-3 in the division.

Twinsburg led most of the way, thanks to its speed off the dribble and its quick hands on defense.

But the Lady Explorers, who trailed 30-14 midway through the second quarter, cut their deficit to six (32-26) when Krissy Mummey scored a layup on a post move.

And that's when Aloneet Durden took over for Twinsburg.

Durden knocked down a 3-pointer on her next possession, made a free throw on her next touch and then gave the Lady Tigers a 38-26 advantage with a floater off the dribble.

The Lady Tigers never looked back.

Twinsburg led by as many as 22 (56-34) when Durden drained a 3-pointer with less than 45 seconds left in the third quarter.

Durden finished with 22 points and knocked down five 3-pointers. Baleigh Reid led all scorers with 23 points for Twinsburg. Reid did most of her damage with layups off the dribble and mid-range jumpers.

Jackie Ulmer led Hudson with 21 points. The Lady Explorers lost a 46-34 decision in the junior varsity game.
