Crowell Sisters Week continued Wednesday night as Edison State men’s and basketball teams swept Lakeland in OCCAC action.


After Jordan Crowell hit six 3-pointers Tuesday to lead Covington girls to a D-IV sectional title, her older sister Jessie — an Edison State sophomore — wasn’t about to be outdone.

She hit five 3-pointers for the Chargers, including one with seven seconds to go to tie the game, and Edison went on to defeated Lakeland 95-89 in overtime.

After trailing 45-31 at halftime, Edison exploded for 32 third-quarter points to take a 63-62 lead.

Lauren Monnin had a perfect third quarter, going 4-for-4 from both the floor and the line to score 12 points, while Crowell hit three of her 3-pointers in the third quarter for nine points.

The Lakers came back and were leading 81-78 before the clutch three by Crowell forced overtime.

Monnin finished with 24 points, 11 rebounds and five assists, while Crowell had 23 points, six rebounds, four assists and three steals.

Riley Culver had 18 points, seven rebounds and four assists, while Holly Frey had an amazing 19 rebounds, 10 points, six assists and three steals.

“It was an outstanding performance defensively in the first half that gave us the edge,” Edison State men’s coach Rick Hickman said. “We only allowed 26 points.. In the second half, we had to adjust offensively as Lakeland mixed it up defensively. Wecame through on the free throw line shooting 90 percent as a team, our best of the season.”
