Basketball: Urbana girls fall to 0-2 after loss to MacArthur

URBANA - After falling 36-14 to Lanphier in their return to the hardwood, the Tigers' girls basketball squad suffered their second straight loss, this time at the hands of the MacArthur Generals. With the 51-10 loss, Urbana moves to an 0-2 record.

Senior Janae Hall, who hauled in nine rebounds, and freshman Zion Reid led the team with four points each. Freshman Lai'yonna Harper rounded the entire scoring effort with one basket. Harper also collected three rebounds and a steal in the home game.

After the Thanksgiving weekend, Urbana will have two opportunities to get their first W of the season. On Monday, the Tigers travel to Arthur "Buz" Sievers Center for a non-conference game against Monticello. A week from today, Charleston (1-4), who beat Monticello last week 41-29, will be at Oscar Adams Gym looking for their second win of the season.
