DANVILLE — It was a night when the Danville Blue Devils were completely in sync and just couldn’t be stopped. With four players in double-digits, the Devils scored from all over the court to douse the Shekinah Christian Flames, 60-31, in their nonconference basketball game on Thursday.

Led by Bri Staats, who had 18 points, Danville jumped ahead 18-9 when she and teammate Julie Didinger each threw in a 3-pointer.

“I thought we shot really well tonight,” said Staats. “Our defense was a lot better. (Shekinah) was a really good team and I thought we played really well against them.”

Staats was all over the court, leading the Devils with five assists and six rebounds.

“We rebounded really well and that helps us push it up the floor and gives us a lot more chances to score,” said Staats.
