Galesburg didn't shoot well and lost its Western Big Six opener at Quincy.
The Silver Streaks couldn't cash in on opportunities, like free-throw shooting. Galesburg (3-2, 0-1) converted just 11-of-27 foul shots, including 2-of-11 in the fourth quarter, and lost 73-67.
The Streaks connected on 12 3-point shots, but struggled shooting the ball all night. Jessica Howard and Mickey Rodriguez, Galesburg's two main 3-point threats, combined to shoot 9-for-43 in the game.
Howard scored a game-high 18 points on six 3-point baskets. Shelby Pacheco added 11 and Rodriguez had 10.
Quincy (4-1, 1-0) also had trouble from the free-throw line, shooting 15-of-32. The Blue Devils were led by Darion Stephens and Jordan Fletcher with 15 points apiece. Shelby Wires added 11.
Galesburg's sophomore team was outscored by Quincy 17-5 in the third quarter and lost 53-44. Myra Diggins led the Silver Streaks (3-2, 0-1) with 16 points. Emma Junk added 15.
