Ivey scores 22 as Cardinals advance to 1-3A final

Feb. 7—BOONEVILLE — Hailey Ivey has the requisite skills to be an offensive force, but she's become one this season out of necessity.

That's because Belmont's leading scorer, McKinley Bennett, went down with a season-ending knee injury in December. The No. 6-ranked Cardinals haven't really missed a beat, thanks in part to Ivey.
