PLYMOUTH â€” Plymouthâ€™s swarming halfcourt defense can give a team fits under normal circumstances. When even the open shots arenâ€™t falling, things can get pretty lopsided.
The Lady Lions converted a woeful 5-of-51 shots from the field, and the host Pilgrims jumped on the visitors early in a 56-12 rout at The Rock Tuesday night.
â€śWe couldnâ€™t hit,â€ť said Bremen head coach Tonja Lucchese. â€śAt the halftime they had four more shots than us from two-point range; we were even on the 3s. If you canâ€™t hit, itâ€™s tough to battle.â€ť
CULVER â€” Culver Communityâ€™s girls basketball team found a winning formula Tuesday â€” defense and timely free throws.
The Cavs limited Class A No. 10 Argos to 26 percent from the field, created 21 turnovers and sank 7-of-8 fourth-quarter attempts from the foul line highlighted by the game-winning pair from sophomore guard Tatum Schultz with 33 seconds left in a 31-29 win at John R. Nelson Gymnasium.
BOURBON â€” Triton coach Adam Heckaman said his Lady Trojans werenâ€™t scared of NorthWoodâ€™s size, but that size is what won out in the end anyway.
Six-one senior Savannah Bley and 5-11 junior Morgan Olson combined for 47 points and 30 rebounds and impressive 19-of-31 shooting from the field, and Class 3A No. 3 NorthWoodâ€™s inside game helped the Lady Panthers take a win from the Class A No. 6-rated Lady TrojansÂ in a match-up of ranked teams Tuesday at The Trojan Trench, 59-51.

LaVille outscored visiting Elkhart Christian 18-7 in the second quarter to rally back from an early deficit, and the Lady Lancers earned their first win of the season with a 56-35 victory over the Eagles at home at the Cox Box Tuesday.
Kelsey Gurtner scored 15, McKenzie Leed finished with 13, and Hannah Herbster put up 11 points as LaVilleâ€™s offensive balance helped put the home team over the top.
