PLYMOUTH â€” Plymouth girls basketball head coach Dave Cox has been stressing the inside game to his players.
On Wednesday, the Lady Pilgrims made it clear they got the message as Plymouthâ€™s bigs paid big dividends in the paint in a 48-39 win over visiting South Bend Washington at The Rock.
CULVER â€”Â Culver Girls Academy finally unearthed the key to containing Culver Community senior star Gwen Zehner â€”Â donâ€™t even let her touch the basketball.
Using a swarming 1-3-1 zone, the Eagles limited Zehner to 12 points on just eight shot attempts, forced 26 turnovers, and held the previously-unbeaten Cavs to a 23 percent mark from the field in a 62-40 win at John R. Nelson Gymnasium Wednesday.
The Academyâ€™s Andrijana Cvitkovic, a 6-foot-2 sophomore, and 6-3 senior reserve Casey Hall gave the Eagles the height and muscle to handle both the 6-1 Zehner and her teammate, 6-3 Patrice McBee.
