Hannah Dyer led the second-ranked Emery Lady Spartans to their 17 win of the season Tuesday night over the visiting Grand Red Devils, 52-20, in a game that was decided early in the first quarter.
Emery came out very strong, scoring the game’s first 14 points before Grand was able to get a bucket. The Spartans led 18-2 after the first quarter.
A dry spell in the second quarter, in which the Spartans only scored three points, allowed the Red Devils to get a bit closer, but could only manage five points themselves, and trailed 21-7 at half. The Spartans outscored Grand 31-13 the rest of the way.
Dyer led all scorers in the game with 16, while Bailey Rasmussen collected 16 rebounds and netted four points on a rough shooting night. Ashlynn Allred chipped in nine.
With just one region game remaining on its schedule, Emery (17-3, 9-0 Region 15) has wrapped up the Region 15 regular season championship and will take on the no. 4 seed from Region 14 on Feb. 21 in the first round of the 2A Championships at Orem High School.
