NORTH JUDSON â€”Â Zoe Bauer said he wasnâ€™t even thinking about the scoring record. The Culver senior preferred to take a back seat to the Cavaliersâ€™ front line Tuesday.
In the end, he got the record anyway.
After putting up 10 points in the opening frame to push his team to a 15-10 lead at the quarter break, Bauer was mostly quiet in the second and third frames, dishing out six assists as the Cavaliers pounded the ball in the paint to take a double digit lead at the half and build to a 36-24 advantage headed into the final frame.
NORTH JUDSON â€” It was an all-too familiar theme for the Lancers.
Already on a two-game skid after a 3-0 start to the season, high turnovers plagued LaVille a third straight game, and the result was their third straight loss as the Lancers fell 77-61 to undefeated North Judson-San Pierre at the North Judson Winning Edge Holiday Basketball Tournament Tuesday.
ARGOS â€” Argosâ€™ girls basketball team suffered through one of those nights where almost nothing went right.
The Dragons shot just 29.6 percent from the field â€“â€” of 12 from 3-point range â€” struggled to an 11-of-23 finish from the charity stripe, and got out-boarded by 11 in a 57-45 loss to Kankakee Valley in the Winter Classic first round Tuesday at Phil Weybright Gymnasium.
Kankakee Valley advances to Thursdayâ€™s title tilt against Rochester at 6:30 p.m., while Argos meets West Central in the consolation round, also Thursday, at 6:15 p.m. Both games are at Argos.
ARGOS â€” Knox defense was the key to the defeat of Argos in Round 1 of the Winning Edge Winter Classic, but it was really Redskins Josh Risner and Elliott Coadâ€™s teamwork that unlocked Knoxâ€™s full power.
The Redskinsâ€™ in-your-face defense held the Dragons to just seven points in the second half for a 45-26 win that carried the Redskins to the championship game of the tournament to be held Thursday at Argos.
Todd Boldry, head coach for Knox, said he knew defense was going to make or break his team all night.
