A tough night for the Galesburg Silver Streaks against the second ranked team in class 3A the Morton Potters at the Potter Dome for the opening game of the Downstate Classic and the Streaks fell with a score of 60-16. Galesburg didn’t score any more than five points in any quarter, and after the first they trailed Morton 21-5. Just a night were nothing went right for Galesburg versus a very good defensive effort from the Potters and they used that to dominate throughout the game. It was the first time this season where Andrea Sampson or Riley Jenkins didn’t have a single point in a game. Daija Range led with 6 points for the Streaks on three baskets and only four other Galesburg players ended the night with points on the board. The Streaks shooting was not very good, going 7/35 from the field, they turned the ball over 18 times, and they were also severely out rebounded by Morton 39-16. So the Streaks fall to 15-9 on the season after back-to-back losses, and Morton now advances to 18-2.
