BROSELEY, Mo. - The fifth-place semifinal at the Lady Royals Classic between Naylor and Kennett started to get chippy in the fourth quarter and was highlighted by Naylor's Lauren Rich getting called for a foul with about four minutes left in the game.

Rich tried to set a downscreen on Darby Sparks and took an elbow in the nose.

Rich grabbed her knees in pain as Naylor made a shot, and complained to the referees while Kennett took the ball out of bounds. As soon as the ball was passed in, Rich sprinted cross court and shoved Sparks, who didn't have the ball, across the floor.

Rich was subbed out and spent the rest of the game with an ice pack on her nose.

Sparks missed both free throws, her only two attempts of the game.

Naylor led 27-13 at halftime and maintained a comfortable lead the rest of the way on its way to a 45-35 win.

Darby Pruett led Naylor with 23 points. Lara Abmeyer was the top scorer for Kennett with 11 points.
