Bulldogs slay the Giants



Brownsburg’s Lindsey Low grabbed the loose ball and was fouled with 0.8 seconds remaining. She missed the free throw, but it was not enough time for Ben Davis to do anything but give a desperation full-court heave.

The Bulldogs celebrated, but upon entering the locker room, Mavunga had a message for her team.

“I walked in there and looked all of them in the face and said, ‘Great game. This is a great victory, I know this means a lot,’” she told the Brownsburg locker room. “‘There is still one more. Yes we can celebrate, it’s a good thing we beat Ben Davis in sectionals, but we are also forgetting this isn’t the championship.’”

Brownsburg led 19-18 after a tightly-contested first half. Ben Davis started the third quarter with a purpose. The Giants went on a 10-2 run to take the eight-point lead, the largest of the game by either team.

Bulldogs senior Kayle Comer ended the run when she connected on the only Brownsburg 3-pointer of the night with 2:06 remaining in the third.

“That was big, it always gets us going when she hits a three,” Brauman said. “It always fires us up a little bit. They were playing really good defense and we couldn’t get her open.”

Mavunga scored two of her game-high 21 points as time expired in the third quarter to cut the deficit to 31-27.

With 2:45 remaining in the game, Mavunga, the North Carolina recruit, tied the score at 37-37 when sophomore Chloe Dygert found her open under the basket.

Giants freshman Taylor McDaniel made a clutch jumper to break the tie with 1:58 left in the game.

Comer was fouled with a minute remaining and connected on 1 of 2 free throws to give her 12 points on the evening and bring the Bulldogs within a point.
