HG hiked its BEC-leading record to 10-0 (13-1 overall). The Tigers are ranked No. 6 in this week’s Associated Press Division 4 poll. The Resorters fell to 3-7 in the league (3-10 overall).

The Tigers dominated the first half on offense and defense – seizing a 37-4 halftime lead. Senior guard Brittany Schaller ignited the Tigers’ attack in the opening half with 18 of her game-high 20 points. Schaller buried two three-pointers in the first half.

“Howards Grove is a very good basketball team. They played great defense. Offensively they executed everything, from inside or on the perimeter,” said Resorter head coach Donny Kulow.

The Tigers shot very well from field at 55 percent, compared to Elkhart’s ice-cold 20 percent. The Resorters were guilty of 25 turnovers while HG had only 12.

“We got a rolling start against Elkhart. They put a lot of focus on Sam Yancy [senior forward] on the inside and left our shooters open on the perimeter. Brittany Schaller really took advantage of that – scoring 18 points in the first half on 6 of 10 shooting [from the field],” said Tiger head coach Heidi Georgeff.

Olivia Stauss led HG in steals with four. Ashley Reinemann had a team-high eight assists. Yancy pulled down 12 rebounds, including seven on offense. Addi Gerber had seven rebounds.

Kianna Bahr paced EL-G in scoring with six and boards, five. Camrie Schmitz led in steals with three.

“Ashley Reinemann [senior guard] did a great job on Sonia Schubert. We extended as much pressure on Sonia when we could. We felt that limiting Sonia would be the key defensively in this game,” said Georgeff.

Schubert, a senior guard, is one of Elkhart’s top scorers this season. She was held to only two points Tuesday night.

“Yancy and Gerber did a nice job on the boards. Mattie Milz played really well off the bench,” said the Tiger coach.
