A combination of stellar shooting by Kenzie Kulm and scoring in transition by Platteview proved too much for the Fairbury Lady Jeffs to overcome in a 77-66 opening round loss last Thursday in the 2014 NSAA State Girls Class C-1 Basketball Championships played at the Devaney Sports Center in Lincoln.

Kulm, a 57 guard for Platteview, went off for five threes en route to scoring a game-high 40 points.

After winning the tip to begin the game, Fairbury scored the first points of the contest on a jump shot by Jordan Johnson.

A three-point field goal by Shelby Pollman bumped the Lady Jeffs lead to 7-2 with 6:16 remaining in the first quarter.
