    MONROE—The Jessica Rupright and Company Road Show visited Adams Central Tuesday night and the state-ranked Norwell girls basketball team easily handled Adams Central by a 74-28 count in non-conference action.
    Rupright led a Norwell contingent that saw four Knights hit double figures on offense as Norwell hiked its record to 18-3 on the season. Rupright dominated the Jets inside as she hit 13-14 shots (she also missed  her only three-point shot) and posted all 26 of her points from the field.
    Norwell coach  Eric Thornton  admitted that while the victory was an easy one for the Knights, "we try to focus on where we need to be on the court both offensively and defensively. Jess finishes hard for us on her plays and with her size (6'2) she was hard for Adams Central to handle. I was also happy with the way Olivia (Geiger) played with her activity. She's missed most of the month of January with a knee injury and she's an important part of the team so it was great to see her contribute as well (6-7 from the field for the 5'11 sophomore). We're going to need solid play from her as we get into the tournament."
    Jami Reinhard and Taylor Wilson were also in twin digits for Thornton's crew. Reinhard had several slashing moves to the baskets in opening half for hoops and ended up with 12  while Wilson hit three of her last four shots of the game to pick up 10.
