PREP GIRLS BASKETBALL: On to the semis

Warsaw, Concord advance Tuesday night

MIDDLEBURY — The name of the game when it comes to the post season tournament is win and advance, which is just what the Warsaw Tigers and the Concord Minutewomen did Tuesday night in the IHSAA Class 4A girls basketball sectional at Northridge.

Warsaw jumped out to a 31-6 halftime lead over the Elkhart Memorial Crimson Chargers on the way to a 59-24 victory.

“We wanted to come out and play a solid all-around game, both on offense and defense,” Warsaw coach Michelle Harter said.

Concord opened a big early lead of 11-1 after one period before holding off the Elkhart Central Blue Blazers for a 43-40 win.

“I told the girls going into the fourth period that if we could get to 40 points we could play enough defense to win,” Concord coach Dan Ross said. “We did, but it was a struggle getting to 40. Central made some adjustments on defense that our players had a hard time recognizing.”

The sectional continues on Friday with the semifinals as the host Raiders (16-4) meet Warsaw (10-9) in the first game at 6 p.m., followed by Goshen (10-10) and Concord (8-12) around 7:30.

The championship is slated for Saturday at 7 p.m.

Senior Nikki Grose was a dominating force in the post for the Tigers, scoring 20 points on 9-of-11 shooting. She grabbed 10 rebounds.

“Nikki stepped up huge for us,” Harter said. “She is capable of that kind of play. It is also the kind of play you want from a senior leader, especially come tournament time. But for her to be successful on the inside means someone has to be hitting from the outside.”

Senior Erin Leek was 2-of-5 from 3-point range.

“Leek hit some big shots for us,”Harter said.

Memorial senior Khadijah Moore had a rough night shooting going 4-of-16 from the field as she scored 10 points.

“Our goal on defense was not to allow No. 34 (Moore) any easy looks at the basket,” Harter said. “We wanted to take her out of the game. We knew if we could frustrate her it would help us in the long run.”
