 Lady Panthers Will Have to Deal with Hot-shooting Bulldog Team

February 6, 2008 - Coach Dawn Basicker is hoping her Lady Panthers will come out of their shooting slump tonight when the girls open sectional play against U.S. 40 rival Centerville.

Knightstown had been struggling from the field since the Christmas break, although they did shoot much better in their last outing, a 58-31 win over Liberty Christian. The Lady Panthers finished the regular season with a 9-11 record, and will go against a Centerville team that has been red-hot late in the season.

The Lady Bulldogs finished the season with five straight wins, including a 58-48 victory over a good 14-6 Tri High team. They also beat Union (50-18), Union County (60-56), Eastern Hancock (65-43) and Monroe Central (62-48) in the last game of the season. Centerville carries a 10-9 record into tonight’s 8 p.m. tip-off.

“Centerville is playing very good basketball right now,” Basicker said. “They have just been shooting the lights out and have hit better than 50 percent in all five of those wins.”

The Lady Panthers, meanwhile, have been struggling from the field for the past six weeks.

“We haven’t been shooting well at all and we’ve got to get that part of our game back,” Basicker said. “Centerville is playing as well as anyone in the sectional right now. It will come down to who hits the shots, and that’s something we’ve been working very hard on in practice.”

Union County (11-9) opened sectional play last night against host Lincoln, at 17-3 the overwhelming sectional favorite. The Lady Golden Eagles are ranked 10th in the coaches’ association Class 2A poll.

Shenandoah (11-9) and Eastern Hancock met in the second game Tuesday night. Results of those contests were not available for publication.

Tonight, Hagerstown (15-5) battles Northeastern (5-13) in the 6 p.m. game, followed by the Lady Panthers and Centerville at 8.
