The Galesburg Silver Streaks have lost three consecutive games now as they fall to the Lincoln Railsplitters on the road by a final of 38-35. The Streaks had lots of opportunities throughout this one but just had trouble handling the ball and didn’t shoot the ball well, giving up 21 turnovers in the ballgame and going just 14/45 from the field and 6/27 from behind the 3-point arc while Lincoln advances to their 9th win on the season. Streaks were led by Riley Jenkins with 14 points, 5 assists, and 3 rebounds, scoring 10 points in the second half and she was our Dave’s Autobody Crunch-Time Player of the Game. Andrea Sampson finished the night with 11 points, playing most of it in foul trouble and she was able to hit 3 3-pointers, 3 rebounds, an assist and a couple of steals while only two other Streaks scored and nobody else was in double figures. Streaks had a shot at it late with a 3-pointer from the right corner, but it went down in and popped back out and the Streaks had to foul. A last-second shot from the Streaks that actually went in, did come after the buzzer so it did not count and the Streaks fall to Lincoln 38-35. Galesburg will be right back at it Saturday against Alleman with an 11:10am pregame 11:30am tip-off here on 93.7 FM & 140 AM WGIL.
