Top-ranked Sioux Center opened the Class 3A portion of the 2017 Iowa High School Girls State Basketball Tournament by running its way to yet another victory.

The fast-breaking Warriors raced to an early 23-point lead and rolled to a 71-27 victory over PCM to remain unbeaten.

Eleven different players scored for Sioux Center and four finished in double figures, led by Jessica Harald with 16 points. Harald also had seven steals, four assists and three blocks.

Teammate Lexi Toering turned in a stat sheet-stuffing performance with 13 points, eight rebounds, seven steals and five assists. Jordyn Van Maanen also scored 13 for the Warriors and Shayla Post added 11 points.

Sioux Center finished with 21 steals in all and collected 34 points off turnovers. By constantly getting steals and pushing the pace, the Warriors often beat the Mustangs down the floor for layups.

Eleventh-ranked PCM had come in with 10 victories in its previous 11 games but never recovered after Sioux Center put together a 13-1 run to build a 34-11 lead midway through the second quarter.

Kayla Jennings led PCM with eight points, while Katie VandeWall and Regan Freland each scored six. VandeWall also pulled down seven rebounds.
