P-T GIRLS top 10
Here the Pirates are again, like last year, up to No. 1 in the poll and undefeated. But they hope the end of this season is better.
2. Michigan City
MC lost to Merrillville during the regular season twice last year and still won the sectional, so Tuesday’s loss doesn’t faze them.
Winning the Carroll tournament this weekend would go a long way in preparing the Red Devils for the postseason.
Every opponent except one (Bowman in a 70-58 win) has scored 22 points or less against the Oilers’ tough defense.
5. West Side
The Cougars are back in the top five after a blowout win over Munster. Next up is a game at Indianapolis Marshall.
The Brickies remain undefeated in the Northwest Crossroads with a road victory at KV last Friday.
7. Bishop Noll
With Noll still tied for first, the Greater South Shore looks like the most competitive conference in the area early on.
8. Lake Central
The Indians are back in the top 10 on the strength of five straight wins, including DAC road games at CP and Chesterton.
That well-known Panthers defense seems to be improving at 31.6 points per game allowed.
The Slicers are barely hanging onto a top-10 spot, but that could be in jeopardy at MC next week.
Player of the week
Tony Murphy, Michigan City
She had 25 points, 11 rebounds and six assists in a win over Chesterton, and 19 points in a loss at Merrillville.
