The Cardinals defeated the Evansville Blue Devils leading scorer in program history. Brodhead (9-11 overall, 6-10 Rock Valley) dominated down the stretch to beat Evansville 62-56 in a Rock Valley matchup last Tuesday.

“I’m happy for the team and especially happy for the seniors. They battled all game. It was a heck of a game,” head coach Brian Kammerer said. “Evansville had the lead with under two and credit to our girls stepped up defensively and knocked down some shots.”
