FARGO -- While Caitlyn Haring didn't think winning or losing was the top priority Wednesday night at the Fargo Civic Center, her play suggested otherwise.

The Fargo South standout scored all 10 of her points in the second half to help Class A girls earn an 83-74 victory against Class B in the Lions All-Star basketball series.

Class A swept two games against Class B this year, scoring a 53-46 victory Tuesday night in Bismarck.

"I don't think it's about winning and losing," said Haring, who is going to UND to play basketball and soccer. "It's about building character and bonding as teammates . . . We just wanted to go out and have fun."

Class A won Tuesday, despite committing 33 turnovers. Class A played a cleaner game Wednesday, cutting its turnovers to 25.

"We wanted to show we were better than we showed (Tuesday) night," said Haring, who was 4-for-5 from the field in the second half.

The game was tied at 40 at halftime.

However, Class A started the second half on a 17-7 run to build a 10-point edge. Haring played a key role in that surge, scoring seven points. Her layup along the left baseline capped the rally and staked Class A to a 57-47 lead with 12 minutes, 45 seconds to play in the second half. Class A led by as many as 15 points in the second half.

"The key is we started to have a little more energy getting up the floor," said Class A coach Ron Metz, from Bismarck Century. "We started to get a little better flow offensively in the second half."

Haring was one of three Class A players to score in double figures. Tricia Sorenson from Bismarck Century led the way with 12 points on 4-for-5 shooting from 3-point range. Alicia Greening from Devils Lake added 10 points. Katie Lee from South and Amber Ramlo from Jamestown chipped in nine points each.

"It's fun to play with the best players in the state," Haring said. "It makes you a better player."

Shaunna Knife of Bottineau and Kendra Miller of Kenmare paced Class B, tying for game-high honors with 17 points.
