The Highlands Ladybirds basketball team could not come up with another victory on the road Thursday.
The host Cincinnati Ursuline Lions (2-0) handed Highlands (1-1) a 58-45 setback. Jesse Daley led the Ladybirds with 10 points and five rebounds.
Ursuline led 32-20 at halftime building the lead behind offensive rebounds. Junior Sarah Reilly led the Lions with 14 points and 11 rebounds.
“We talked about it at halftime. We were letting our offense dictate our defense,” said Jaime Richey, Highlands head coach. “We weren’t making shots, so we were being a little bit passive on defense. That’s not us.”
Highlands travels to Louisville Sacred Heart on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m.
