Bulldogs slay the Giants

(Continued)

BROWNSBURG —

Oles’ play proved true to the claim in basketball that you do not have to score to make an impact on the game.

Despite not scoring a point and facing a press almost the entire game, the 5-foot-4 point guard made her presence known throughout the contest.

She took an offensive foul from Ben Davis’ Danielle Cuttino after Comer hit her 3-pointer in the third quarter to help swing momentum to Brownsburg. Also, Oles, along with Low, helped gain a jumpball from the Giants’ 6-foot senior Amber Jones with under 45 seconds remaining.

That possession swing led to Mavunga’s game-winning free throws.

“Margaret played awesome,” Brauman said. “She provides a calmness for us and so it’s almost like we have to have her on the court all the time.”

Mavunga said after the game about Oles that “she wouldn’t trade her for any point guard in the state.”

With her hustle and determination, the smallest player on the court might have had the biggest impact in last night’s Bulldogs win.

“I want this for myself, but I want it more for my team,” Oles said. “You’ve got to go after it and you’ve got to play your role. That’s what I tried to do today.”
