Stars of the Night: Tuesday's Top Girls Scorers

A look at the top scorers from Tuesday night's action in Central Ohio

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- It's not often that you see an entire team get outscored by a single player in today's game. The game is so fast paced nowadays and so many points are put up that you really have to dominate a team in order to achieve that feat, which makes it so hard.

Unless you're Katie Neuhart, that is.

Outscoring Shekinah Christian by herself, Neuhart put up three times (!!!) the amount of points that the Flames did as an entire team, dropping 35 points in a 67-10 win for Delaware Christian.

Nailing just one three, converting on 14 two-point field goals and hitting four free throws, the sophomore guard used a huge 17 point third quarter to really take the game over on her own.

While Delaware Christian has struggled in some games this season, the sophomore Neuhart has consistently been productive, as she also dropped 21 in a game with Danville earlier this year.

She highlights our first rendition of Stars of the Night for girls this season, however, there were many other great performances in the area, so let's take a look at them below.

Aja Austin (6'1 C / Westerville South / 2021): Continuing to improve on her already fantastic season, Austin went off for 27 points in a big win over Delaware Hayes. Doing what she usually does, the Delaware commit got anything she wanted inside and converted on 12 two point fields goals to go along with a three-for-five showing at the line. Austin is one of the toughest matchups in the area on the interior and  has been on a tear recently, scoring 76 points over her last three games and proving to be a double-double machine with the work she does on the glass.

Abbie Riddle (5'11 G / Liberty Union / 2023): Going off for 25 points on Tuesday night, the sophomore guard Riddle led the way for Liberty Union in a dominant showing as they rolled over Logan Elm 56-23. Riddle is a three level scorer who does a good job of getting her teammates involved as well. When she is on, the Lions seem to be on, as she has scored in double digits in nearly all of their wins this season and also went for 18 in a close loss against a great Berne Union team. Riddle currently holds a handful of mid-major offers and is one of the better 2023 prospects in the area.

Elizabeth Ringley  (5'7 G / Delaware Christian / 2021): Teaming up with Neuhart to dominate Shekinah Christian on Tuesday, Ringley also outscored the flames by herself by putting up 24 of her own points. The senior guard converted on eight two-point field goals and also went an efficient eight-of-ten from the free throw line. With the duo of Ringley and Neuhart, Delaware Christian is sure to be a big threat to win the MOCAL this season.

Alexis Amabile (5'10 G / Delaware Hayes / 2021): Leading all scorers with 21 points in a solid win over Dublin Scioto, Amabile was aggressive from the start, getting to the free throw line 13 times and converting efficiently on 10 of them. The senior guard has shown the ability to put up big time scoring numbers on several occasions as she can really fill it up when she gets going. Amabile also did a great job of icing the game late on Tuesday as several of the free throw opportunities she converted on came in clutch situations. Keep an eye on the Delaware Hayes senior moving forward this season.
