  • BBB Roundup: Huskies fall in overtime, go cold in 2nd half

    ARCADIA – The Hamilton Heights Huskies hosted the Frankton Eagles on Tuesday night. In what would be a wild game all-around the Huskies ended falling in overtime to the Eagles by a final score of 64-56. 

    Both teams battled back and forth in the first quarter, but the Huskies were able to hold a 14-11 lead after one. Then in the second quarter, the Husky offense led by Junior Gus Etchison started to catch fire. A 22-12 quarter saw Hamilton Heights take a 36-23 lead at the half. In the second half, the Huskies offense just went cold as they combined to score just 20 points the next two quarters and in overtime (nine in the third, six in the fourth, and five in OT).

    Ashlynn Shade, Noblesville’s super freshman who leads the Lady Millers with a 20.3 scoring average and placed third in Hoosier Crossroads Conference scoring, will get her first taste of intense tournament pressure in tonight’s semifinal round of Sectional 8 at Westfield High School.

    And there’s a pretty good chance that she’ll likely handle her part of the challenge quite well.

    This is a new season. Noblesville’s 10-12 record, worst in the field, means very little.

    Time to hit on all cylinders and produce a cohesive team effort. 

    That’s what really matters at tourney time.

    Each surviving team has at least one go-to player when times are tough.

    Shade will likely need to be that player once again for the Lady Millers.

    Royals able to take down Lady Hounds in opening round of sectionals

    WESTFIELD – The Class 4A Sectional 8 tournament is always regarded as one of the toughest sectionals in the state.  Tuesday night marked the opening round of the girls’ basketball sectionals and fans were treated to a great matchup in the opening round as the Lady Royals of Hamilton Southeastern took on the Lady Greyhounds of Carmel at Westfield High School. One team’s great season had to come to an end and unfortunately for Carmel they were ousted by the Lady Royals by a final score of 51-44. 

    The Lady Hounds came out in the first quarter and were able to hold a slim one-point lead over the Royals after one by a score of 11-10. The next two quarters would see the Royals start to pull away as they outscored Carmel 17-9 in the second and 15-14 in the third to take a 42-34 lead into the final quarter of play. Needing to put together a great quarter on both sides of the ball, the Lady Hounds just couldn’t build any momentum against the always tough Lady Royals. 

    Sydney Parrish led all scorers with points in the win and also grabbed eight rebounds for the Lady Royals. 

    The loss for the Greyhounds ends their season with a record of 15-8. The win for the Lady Royals is just the first step in attempting to defend their Class 4A State title from a year ago as their record improves to 21-2.  Their next game will be on Friday night in the sectional semi-finals as they take on HCC opponent Noblesville (10-12) at 7:30 

    The Royals and Millers met back on Dec. 4 and the Lady Royals were able to come away with 51-32 win. 

  • Regional huge test for Sectional 8 survivor

    No matter the outcome of Sectional 8 this week, here’s a couple of strong possibilities for the near future in Indiana high school girls basketball:

    Whichever team advances from Westfield will likely need to get past both Class 4A No. 1 Northwestern (23-0) and then No. 4 Homestead (22-1) to reach the semi-state round.

    No easy task . . . indeed!

    Northwestern, the two-time defending 3A state champion, was forced to move up a level under the IHSAA Tournament Success Factor.

    And the Lady Tigers have yet to face a stern test in 4A. Their closest game so far was a 61-58 encounter against Maine West (Ill.).

    Their closest game against an Indiana Team was a 65-51 conquest of North Central.

    Yeah, they are that good! Ask anyone!

    There’s nothing like the drama of a last-second shot in high school basketball.

    There’s nothing like the feeling you get when the ball zips through the net.

    There’s nothing like that ecstatic feeling and expressing overwhelming joy and excitement . . . or the feeling you have when a loss can feel like a dagger to the heart.

    There’s nothing like your reaction whether you are a player on the court or a fan in the stands, on the winning or losing side of the floor. 

    You’re either going to walk away happy or sad. Wiping tears from your eyes or pumping your fist in the air while celebrating.

    That’s what this time of year is all about: It’s a one-and-done tournament. You’re either all in or all out . . . No second chances.
