Brownsburg wins a four-peat

DANVILLE — For only the second time in the girls’ Hendricks Regional Health County Basketball Tournament history, the Brownsburg Bulldogs have won four-in-a-row.

North Carolina recruit Stephanie Mavunga notched game highs of 17 points and 13 rebounds to lead Brownsburg to a 54-26 victory over the Tri-West Bruins.

The Bulldogs previously won four county championships in a row from 1997-2001.

“It’s awesome for the seniors,” Brownsburg coach Amy Brauman said. “We had people step up and play that haven’t even gotten to play in games in the past. It’s really awesome to be able to finish their senior year with a county championship.”

While Mavunga gets most of the attention on this team, it doesn’t bother any of her fellow seniors.

“This is a great bunch and we have really nice kids,” Brauman said. “Obviously, Stephanie has been the focal point of it but the other kids are very unselfish. They don’t care if she gets every bit of press and fame. They just want to win ball games. We’re really going to miss them because they’ve done a great job of keeping the tradition of Brownsburg basketball.”

The Bulldogs led 12-7 after the first quarter, but the Bruins kept it close.

Tri-West senior Lauren DeSutter banked in a trey, blocked on a shot on the other end and then Katrina Headlee made a 3-pointer to cut the Brownsburg lead to 14-13.

The Bulldogs though responded with 12 unanswered points to end the half and led 26-13 after two quarters.

With the exception of that 12-0 Brownsburg run, Tri-West was right there in the first half.

Tri-West coach Brad Acton said, “That’s what the disappointing thing is with our kids and our coaches. What we were trying to do was working pretty well for most of the first half. That last run we just didn’t make stops and we let them get all of that momentum getting into halftime.”
