PLYMOUTH â€”Â The Plymouth girlsâ€™ basketball team opened up its 2012-13 season in with a 48-24 victory at Peru.
There may be a new head coach at the helm but the team and style of play was business as usual for the Pilgrims using a smothering defense to lead the way to a 48-24 victory against the Peru Lady Tigers.
â€śOur defensive philosophy has worked for several years,â€ť Said new Lady Pilgrim coach Dave Duncan. â€śWhen something is working for us we arenâ€™t going to go away from it.â€ť
CULVER â€” The first game of the season can always be a bit of a shaky affair. Add to that all the hubbub surrounding a pre-game ceremony to honor CGA alum and Indiana Miss Basketball 1990 Patricia Babcock, and Lady Eagles head coach Gary Christlieb was feeling a little nervous about his teamâ€™s focus going into its season-opener.
Luckily for Culver Girls Academy, any fears their coach was feeling were quickly put to rest.
CULVER â€” As a sports journalist, Patricia Babcock-McGraw doesnâ€™t get many free nights to come watch her old team play.
Sheâ€™s too busy covering for the Daily Herald in Chicago or broadcasting college and WNBA games with the Big Ten Network or on Comcast, and, as a result, she hasnâ€™t had a chance to come down to watch her Lady Eagles play since she graduated in 1990.
BOURBON â€” Tritonâ€™s girls basketball team looked every bit of its Class A No. 7 preseason ranking Friday.
Spurred by a turnover-creating defense that facilitated an effective transition offense, the Trojans rattled off 10 unanswered points in the initial frame and scored 11 straight to finish the first half in a 61-44 season-opening win over North Judson-San Pierre at The Trojan Trench.
