Too many weapons and not enough answers proved to be too much for Robinson High School's girls' basketball team to overcome Monday night.
The Lady Maroons did not have enough firepower to keep up with a potent Flora squad, resulting in a 74-37 loss on the road in Little Illini Conference play.
"It was a decent game, but Flora had too many weapons for us to cover," RHS head coach Dave Holubek said.
Robinson fell behind 17-6 after one quarter and never seriously threatened after that. The Lady Maroons were outscored 19-9 in the second quarter for a 36-15 halftime deficit, but then outscored Flora 14-10 in the third quarter to close the gap to 46-29. Flora then blitzed the Lady Maroons 28-8 in the fourth quarter to turn the game into a rout.
Flora held a big advantage at the free throw and three-point lines, which were a big factor in the game. The Wolfgals made seven three-pointers to just two for Robinson, while also connecting on 24-34 free throws (71 percent), compared to just 15-24 free throw shooting for the Lady Maroons (63 percent).
Kylee Hannahs and Ashlyn Sullivan shared scoring honors for RHS with 10 points apiece, while Kyndal Mendenhall and Brittany Quick netted six points apiece. Emily Calip added three points for the Lady Maroons and Tessa Laino tossed in two.
Crimson Jones led Flora with 23 points, while Meg Hout poured in 21.
Robinson also lost the junior varsity contest, 42-12.
Laino led RHS with 10 points, while Kelsie Thompson scored two.
Robinson (3-9. 3-5 LIC) will play Lawrenceville in the opening round of the LIC Tournament at Cumberland Thursday at 7:30 p.m.
