HAMLET â€” Two games, two big blowouts at the Class A Girls Basketball Sectional 51 Wednesday at The Den.
In the opener, host Oregon-Davis ran off 27 unanswered points to open the game and limited Westville to four points through three quarters en route to an 83-18 victory.
Meanwhile, Argos rattled off 22 consecutive points over a nine-minute span in the first half and settled for a mere 30-point margin in a 52-22 rout of Michigan City Marquette in the nightcap.
PLYMOUTH â€” Plymouth Rockies offensive lineman Dan Samuelson made it official Wednesday morning â€” next year he will be a Michigan Wolverine.
After a long-involved recruitment period, Samuelson arrived at his decision for a simple reason.
â€śCoach Hoke and academics,â€ť said Samuelson of his decision of U of M. â€śI want to study Special Education.â€ť
That decision â€” along with many others for the Samuelsons â€” is family-related.
Slabaugh, Lucchese lead Lady Lions in sectional opener
Bremen jumped out to a 17-11 lead at the first quarter break and held off Prairie Heights down the stretch for a 58-53 victory at the Lady Lionsâ€™ opener at the Class 2A Central Noble Sectional Tuesday night.
Sara Slabaugh and Ashley Lucchese put up 17 and 16 points, respectively, and Chelsea Huppert finished with eight as the Lions earned back-to-back wins for just the second time this season.
HAMLET â€” The basketball, not to mention Culver Communityâ€™s season, hung seemingly in suspended animation on the rim.
The ball, lofted wide open from the right block by South Central freshman center Riley Popplewell rolled off the front of the iron as regulation expired to extend the game and the Cavsâ€™ season.
In the extra session, Culver sophomore forward Donna Zehner scored five points and swiped a pair of steals as the Cavs eked out a 41-39 overtime victory over the Satellites in the Class A Girls Basketball Sectional 51 opener at Oregon-Davis Tuesday.
NEW CARLISLE â€” Few teams can afford to overlook their opponents come tournament time, especially on their home floor.
At 1-19 coming into Tuesdayâ€™s Class 3A Sectional 19 opener, host New Prairie looked like a pushover on paper, but the Lady Cougars came ready to play. Fortunately for Culver Girls Academy, so did they.
CGA took control early with a 13-2 game-opening run, and the Lady Eagles never looked back in an eventual 59-49 sectional quarterfinal win.

DONALDSON â€” The Ancilla College baseball team will be pitching in to help in a special effort for American soldiers overseas.
Ancilla Athletic Director Gene Reese â€” an avid baseball fan â€” came across a perfect community service match for the team while reading up on the latest baseball news online. Reese came across Gloves 4 Troops, a charity run by Vance Albitz, a minor league shortstop with the Memphis Cardinals. A brief discussion with Ancilla baseball coach Joe Yonto later, and the Chargers were on board.
