HALFWAY — With Joelle Bain injured and Hailee Bingham coming back from a serious bout of pneumonia, the No. 1-ranked Powder Valley Badgers still took care of business at their Pine-Eagle Tournament opener Saturday.

Kali Miller scored 23 points, while Bingham, playing her first game of the season since contracting pneumonia, hit two 3-pointers and scored 14 to lead Powder Valley to a 61-32 win over Joseph.

The Badgers remain undefeated at 3-0.

Joseph coach Dan Butterfield said his girls were in the game after the first half, down just 28-18. But, in the second half, Powder Valley's pressure got to Joseph.

"I think our youth showed up," he said.

Joseph was led by Anna Yost, who had nine points and 15 rebounds and Beth McClaran, who had eight points. Haddie Carpenter had eight rebounds for the Eagles.

Bain, last year's leading scorer for the Badgers, did not play due to an unspecified injury. Both teams continue playing in the Pine-Eagle Tournament today.
