ANDOVER, Kan. (Catch it Kansas) - Bailey Wilborn sunk 9 threes, part of a performance that saw Central hit 16 shots from behind the arc as they cruised past Andover 70-27 Friday night.

The Trojans matched the Jaguars for much of the opening quarter-plus, trailing by just one after the opening frame and leading it 16-15 in the second. Then Wilborn caught fire, hitting three consecutive attempts from deep to kickstart a 19-0 run that carried into the second half.

Ellie Stearns hit four threes of her own to finish with 14 points, while Brittany Harshaw and Jayden Newfarmer contributed 10 points apiece as the Jags continued to pull away.
