Indian Creek senior Ally Lehman told her teammates that she expected a solid start to Tuesday night’s Mid-Hoosier Conference girls basketball game at Morristown.
And then she made sure it happened.
Lehman scored 24 points in the first half to help lead the Class 3A Braves to a 64-31 blowout against the host Class A Yellow Jackets.
Lehman sat on the bench the entire fourth quarter and still finished with a game-high 32 points on 13-of-18 shooting from the field. The 5-foot-10 guard/forward also grabbed a game-best nine rebounds and recorded five steals, five assists and four blocked shots.
Indian Creek freshman Candace Danz added 13 points, and senior guard Brooke Mathena finished with 10 points.
“I told the girls that I didn’t want to get angry in the first quarter,” Lehman said with a laugh. “Jessica Knight stepped up on defense, Brooke Mathena was getting on the ball, and Candace (Danz) was really moving.
“I just really liked the activity that our team had.”
