OSSIAN — The point totals weren’t the only statistic lighting up the scoreboard Friday night when Columbia City (5-3) girls’ basketball team took to the conference road at class 3A’s No. 3 Norwell Lady Knights.
Blocking fouls, shooting fouls, over-the-back fouls, whatever it was sounding off.
In the first half alone, the two Northeast Hoosier Conference rivals combined for 25 fouls and 35 free throw attempts.
CHURUBUSCO — Lacking two of their top scorers, the Churubusco Lady Eagles fell short to West Noble Friday night, losing 52-30.
Leading scorer Haleigh Gross and senior Nichole Wormcastle had to watch their team from the bench, due to injuries.
“We were a little short-handed tonight,” Churubusco head coach Jamie Perlich said.
The Lady Eagles held the score close in the beginning of the game, with ’Busco only trailing by three points at the end of the first quarter.
