Shelby Kassuba scores a career-high 24 points
With its top-three scorers from last season now playing college basketball, the Skyline High School Spartans girls basketball team has had to find new offensive sources this year.
Senior wing Shelby Kassuba is one of the players who has stepped forward, and she nearly led the Spartans to an important Class 4A KingCo Conference win Dec. 18.
Kassuba scored a career-high 24 points, including 16 in the second half, but it wasn’t enough as Skyline’s rally fell short in a 61-58 loss to the visiting Bothell Cougars.
Kassuba’s outburst upped her scoring average to 12.2 points per game, and it gave Spartans coach Greg Bruns something to smile about.
