McLouth was ready to play and defeated Tonganoxie 33-14.
Jeannin scored 10 points. McCaffrey and Breuer each scored two.
"The girls learned some things against a good McLouth team," Korb said. "I don't think we were ready to play. They learned that you always have to be mentally ready to play each and every game.
"We need to work on our half court offense if we are to continue our success."
