Bears’ Heinold nets 38
Talk about a one-girl show.
Taylor Heinold was all that for Immaculata in a 61-36 triumph at Eden in a non-league basketball game Wednesday night. Not only did the senior outscore the Raiders in the opening quarter, she scored all 17 of her team’s points on the way to a career-high 38-point game. The Eden team had only six points in that period. Heinold also had 15 rebounds and six blocked shots.
Heinold, who is second on the Bears’ all-time scoring list, has accepted a scholarship to play at Daemen College, which will be an NCAA Division II member next year. The daughter of former Canisius College player Chris Heinold signed her national letter of intent Wednesday.
