SOUTH BEND â€” It was a tale of two halves for the Lady Pilgrim basketball team at St. Joseph High School Tuesday night.
Plymouth used solid defense to take a 17-9 lead in the first half but couldnâ€™t hold on in a 28-24 loss to the sectional-rival Indians.
Plymouth was back to its defensive self in the first half, causing the Indians to shoot only 14 percent from the floor while finding some good looks offensively, mostly on out-of-bounds plays, to head into the locker room with a 17-9 lead.

And when heâ€™s reflecting on his time in office, Gov. Daniels says he is satisfied with the way things have changed.
â€śI hope in the entirety that our time will have had an effect of moving the culture of this state in direction of change and leadership,â€ť Daniels said about his time as Governor.
