Sanders lifts No. 6 Cavs over Winamac at North Newton

February 14, 2011

MOROCCO — With twin towers Gwen Zehner and Patrice McBee struggling to produce, Culver senior guard Whitney Sanders stepped up with 13 points, lifting the No. 6 Cavaliers over Winamac 34-25 to win the Class 2A North Newton Sectional Saturday.
The Cavs overcame a one-point, 23-22 deficit in the final frame for their first sectional crown since 2002. Culver shot just 23 percent from the field but held Winamac to only 21 percent in the defensive contest. The Cavs hit 13 free throws in 22 tries compared to a 7-of-14 finish from the stripe by the Warriors.

Trojans beat Dragons 39-32

February 12, 2011

HAMLET — Triton baited the trap, and Argos stepped right into it time after time after time.
The Trojans’ 1-3-1 halfcourt trap forced 26 turnovers and held Argos to 33 percent from the field en route to a 39-32 Class A Girls Basketball Sectional 50 semifinal win at Oregon-Davis Friday night.
The Trojans take on host and four-time defending sectional champion OD tonight at 7:30 p.m. EST.
“We make it a goal to hold teams below 35 points, and we’ve done it two games in a row,” Triton head coach Adam Heckaman said. “We tell the girls that if the other team doesn’t score we can’t be beaten.

CGA coasts through Cougars

February 12, 2011

ROCHESTER — If there’s a name for the defense Culver Girls Academy unleashed against New Prairie Friday, head coach Gary Christlieb isn’t saying.
Whatever it was, it was effective.
The Lady Eagles, showing off a defense that resembled a diamond-and-one zone with elements of man-to-man and halfcourt trap, held the Cougars to a measly 10-of-44 shooting clip from the floor while creating 16 turnovers — including a 1-for-10 third-quarter effort with six turnovers in the same span — en route to a 43-24 Sectional 19 semifinal shellacking at Rochester.

Lady Bobcats roll over Westville, 86-41

February 12, 2011

HAMLET — Oregon-Davis answered the age-old question, “Can a 17-0 run to start a basketball game look anything other than terrific?”
Why, yes, if interspersed with multiple unforced turnovers and a silent and somewhat lethargic defensive effort.
Still, 17 unanswered points is 17 unanswered points, and the fifth-ranked Lady Cats rolled to an 86-41 win over Westville in Class A Sectional 50 semifinal action at The Den Friday.
OD seeks its fifth consecutive crown tonight at 7:30 p.m. EST against Triton.

Late rally lifts No. 6 Culver past No. 5 Wolves at North Newton

February 12, 2011

MOROCCO — After three brutal offensive quarters in Friday’s Sectional 34 semifinal, the Culver girls basketball team responded when it mattered most.
Tied with Class 2A No. 5 Boone Grove with four minutes remaining, No. 6 Culver finished the game with a 12-5 spurt for a 41-34 win to reach Saturday’s title game against Winamac.
After shooting 15 percent leading up to the fourth quarter, Culver (22-1) forced its will on Boone Grove (20-2) down the stretch.

Warsaw routs Plymouth, 72-27

February 11, 2011

PLYMOUTH — Coming off an upset by Elkhart Memorial last week, Warsaw was on a mission.
With star point guard Nick Moore sitting out the first quarter for disciplinary reasons, the Class 4A No. 8 Tigers got off to a relatively slow start, but once they got rolling they were impossible to stop. Warsaw went on a 20-0 rampage spanning the first 4:43 of the second half to put the game out of reach, going on to rout host Plymouth 72-27 in a Northern Lakes Conference contest at The Rock Thursday.

Triton trumps Bremen, stays perfect in NSC

February 11, 2011

BOURBON — After splitting the Northern State Conference title with John Glenn last season, Triton has no intention of sharing this year’s championship.
With Thursday’s 67-42 win over Bremen, Class A No. 2 Triton (14-3 overall, 6-0 in Northern State) stayed perfect in conference play. With just one league game remaining, a solo title is within reach.

Culver holds off visiting Dragons in bell game, 48-41

February 11, 2011

CULVER — Culver Community’s boys basketball team reclaimed the traveling bell from Argos Thursday.
Given the way the Cavs floundered down the stretch, though, the bell probably sounded a little less melodious.
Culver watched a 16-point fourth-quarter lead melt to four points in the final minute before hanging on for a 48-41 win over visiting Argos at John R. Nelson Gymnasium.

Plymouth sets season-high in loss at Warsaw
