On fire: Orr’s 36 ties single-game record,


When McKayla Orr left the game on Saturday, scoring never crossed her mind.

It was hard to miss.

The senior point guard from Jamestown poured in 36 points, tying the West Region tournament’s single-game record in an 87-58 throttling of Turtle Mountain at the Bismarck Civic Center.

“I didn’t even know that, but it feels good,” Orr said of the record. “I didn’t think about scoring at all. Just played my game.”
