CLAY CENTER — The top-ranked team in Class 4A Division II was every bit as good as advertised.
No. 1 Clay Center pounced on the Smoky Valley High School girls basketball team early and never let up in a 47-21 win. Clay Center led 19-5 after the first quarter and 30-7 at halftime.
Katie Bellah and Kate Deterding combined to score 17 points to lead Smoky Valley.
The Vikings host Hoisington on Tuesday.
