CLINTON — The Clinton Lady Maroons’ basketball team is playing in a summer league this year and hosted the Clinton Round Robin last week.
Opponents in he foray were two Decatur teams, Macarthur and Eisenhower. Some of the changes in play for the summer league are; there are two 18-minute halves with a running clock (no stops during play), and there are no free throws (if a player makse a basket and is fouled she gets an automatic third point. If she misses the basket and is fouled, she gets an automatic two points).
The evening began with the Lady Maroons battling the Lady Generals of Macarthur. Macarthur has a strong team, taking several big leads in the first half and led by nine at halftime. However, the home team regrouped during the break and played strong in the second half, holding the Lady Generals to just 15 points while getting back into the game themselves.
