Seniors lift Indian Creek to sectional championship


In the opening 18 minutes, the Class 3A girls basketball sectional final at Beech Grove had all the looks of a thriller.

But looks were deceiving.

Finding offensive traction in the second half, Indian Creek rolled to its second straight sectional championship with a 68-34 win Saturday night against Danville.

With the victory, the Braves (19-5) advance to the Feb. 16 Danville Regional. They play Greencastle (15-9) in the semifinal. Should they advance, they will meet either No. 1 Lebanon (21-3) or No. 6 Mount Vernon (Fortville, 19-4) in the final.

In the early going Saturday, the regional was an uncertain destination.

Indian Creek led 20-15 at halftime and clung to a fragile 22-19 advantage in the opening minutes of the third quarter before pulling away.

In a two-minute span in the third period, the Braves pushed the lead to 31-19 and outscored Danville 24-10 in the quarter.

It was all Indian Creek after that.
