HOLIDAY HOOP PREP

Goshen in good place near midpoint of season

GOSHEN – For the Goshen High School girls basketball team, the schedule this week includes Christmas Day off and that’s it.

The Redskins are preparing to host their holiday tournament on Saturday.

The four-team soiree also includes Tipton, DeKalb and John Glenn. The tournament includes both varsity and J.V. games.

Goshen takes on Tipton Saturday at 12:30 p.m. in the main gym while DeKalb and John Glenn meet in Whiteman Gym. A third-place consolation game will take place at 2:30 p.m., with the championship game set for 4 p.m. in the main gym.

The contest against Tipton will be a challenge for the Redskins: Until recently, Tipton was the No. 1-ranked team in Class 2A.

As The Redskins prepare for the tournament, coach Lenny Krebs likes what he’s seen from his team so far in 2013-14. Goshen is 7-2 as the midpoint of the season draws near.

“Considering the injuries we started out the season with, I’m pleased with where we are,” Krebs said.

One of the Redskins’ needs at this point in the season is increased production from their post players, and the return of sophomore Olivia Love could help in that area. Love, out with an injury for most of the season, saw a few minutes of action in last Saturday night’s loss to Northridge and is expected to play more this weekend in the tournament, Krebs said.

Senior guard Deja Felder has stepped nicely into the scoring void left by the graduated Aimee Swihart. Felder is averaging 17.6 ppg. Her season high was a 26-point performance in the second game of the season, a 63-50 win over Bremen.

Krebs said the Redskins are still looking for a consistent second scorer to step up. Goshen is also getting 7.0 ppg from freshman point guard Ashton Ellis; 6.7 ppg from senior forward Christina Gipson; and 5.4 ppg from junior forward Kayci Troyer.
