The quality of the first half wasn’t what Indian Creek girls basketball coach Dan Burkman had in mind.
Not with sectional play just a couple weeks away.
After an unimpressive first half, the Braves played much better in the second. They scored 37 points on 17-of-24 shooting in the final two quarters for a 68-35 victory Thursday night against visiting South Decatur.
“I felt really good where we were right now, and I still do, as a team,” Burkman said. “You don’t want to have a game like that right now. I guess now is better than two weeks from now.”
Helped in large part by senior Ally Lehman’s all-around game (32 points, 16 rebounds, eight steals, four assists and three blocked shots), Indian Creek (15-4) won its seventh straight game and claimed sole possession of the Mid-Hoosier Conference title. The Braves finished 8-0 in league play.
