Riley, Lady Aces edge DC

Feb. 3—Karmin Riley poured in a game-high 24 points, all in the second half, to help the Owensboro Catholic High School girls' basketball team overcome its early struggles in a 64-60 district victory against Daviess County Friday night at the Sportscenter.

The No. 8 Lady Aces (17-4, 4-1 9th District) fell behind 28-22 at intermission, but Riley's first bucket out of the break helped spark a 10-0 run that created momentum for Catholic's offense.
