The Eagles, 12-11, advance to the semifinals against No. 3-seeded Hilbert Friday at Christian at 7 p.m. Elkhart, a No. 7 seed, ended its season at 2-21.

Christian’s tight man-to-man defense and trapping 1-3-1 zone really challenged the Resorters’ offense after the first quarter. Elkhart trailed only 13-12 after one period but struggled from the field the rest of the way as the Eagles surrendered few open looks.

Elkhart was outscored 12-5 in the second period as it fell behind 25-17 at halftime. The Eagles used a 6-2 run to close out the quarter, led by Chris TenDolle who hit a follow-up shot and a layup.

The Resorters’ 2-1-2 zone kept them in the game most of the night as it made the Eagles work for good shots and didn’t allow very many easy baskets. Elkhart was down only 35-27 through three quarters but then hit a dry spell on offense as Christian pulled away.

The Eagles had a 9-0 spurt to start the final quarter which boosted their lead to 44-27 with 3:39 left. Jaby
