Lady Cavs win 3rd straight
The Lady Cavaliers held visiting North White to only three points in the first half and kept the visitors off the scoresheet in the fourth quarter for a 53-20 win Saturday.
North White stumbled to 0-for-13 from the field against Culverâ€™s defense in the first half, scoring its only points at the free throw line as the Lady Vikings remained winless.
Lions open with win at Argos
Bremen grabbed a 13-7 lead at the end of the first quarter en route to an eventual 60-52 season-opening win on the road at Argos Wednesday night.
Ethan Pike scored a game-high 21 points, and Jacob Box finished with 13 points and two assists for the Lions, who got scoring from seven players in the win.

Now that Notre Dame is one game away from a national title shot, those who despise the Fighting Irish have entered into what Iâ€™m calling â€ś5 stages of Domer Hater Griefâ€ť.
Stage 1 â€” Denial
â€śThere is no way Notre Dame can win a national title.â€ť
With Texas A & Mâ€™s win over Alabama and Stanfordâ€™s dismantling of Oregonâ€™s offense, I say there are no certainties in college football.
Especially this year.
Notre Dame can and will beat whoever the SEC champ is.
Stage 2 â€” Anger (My personal favorite)
The stars continue to align for Notre Dame football fans. With both No. 1 and 2 losing last week, the Fighting Irish are in the top spot now.
Unbelievable. Who would have thunk it? Not even Brian Kelly until last week when he was the only coach who voted the Irish No. 1. Now, everyone has to.
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.
Lady Lancers earn first win
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.
ECA was led by Dora Jongsmaâ€™s 16.
LaVille travels to Oregon-Davis Nov. 29.
â€˘Â LaVILLE 56, ELKHART CHRISTIAN 35
ECA: 11 18 24 35
BOURBON â€” A year ago in the spring of 2011, then-Triton sophomore Quentyn Carpenter had a decision to make: Continue playing with the Trojansâ€™ successful basketball team or get serious about his first love and quit the team to pursue golf full-time.
It wasnâ€™t an easy choice but Carpenter stood firm, and he was given a measure of vindication when he signed on with the Ball Stateâ€™s menâ€™s golf team last week.
