County girls ready to hit the court

(Continued)

Coming off the bench for Brownsburg will be freshman Aliyah Walker, sophomore Chloe Dygert and senior Margaret Oles.

Brauman expects this Bulldogs team to be one of the more athletic squads in her six seasons.

“We have some younger kids that can really get down and play some good defense whether it be full court or half court,” she said. “Hopefully, we’ll look to continue to push the ball.”

A team that has seven seniors and has gone 56-14 the past three seasons are highly ranked and one of a handful of teams considered state contenders. But it’s a process and Brauman and the Bulldogs understand that.

“We just have to take it one step at a time. Having seven seniors, we have a lot of girls who have been through it before. They understand that it’s a process and that things take time to develop,” Brauman said.

The Achilles heel of this Bulldogs team has been the Ben Davis Giants who has eliminated Brownsburg in three straight sectionals. To advance outside of sectionals this season, a matchup against the Giants is likely. The two teams play in the regular season again this year, but this matchup will be measured if they meet in the postseason.

“A lot of it is a mental toughness once you get to sectionals. Ben Davis is going to be good again this year but the girls have to realize they are a good team too,” Brauman said. “Last year was heartbreaking to beat them in the regular season and not be able to contend with them in the sectional. We just have to get ready to play our best basketball at the end of the year.”

 

Tri-West

As Tri-West graduated five of its top six players from a 19-5 squad, the Bruins and coach Brad Acton are happy they return their best player.
