Brownsburg runs away with big win

AVON — With county and Hoosier Crossroads Conference bragging rights on the line Friday night, the Brownsburg girls’ basketball team won a lopsided victory over Avon.

Brownsburg outscored Avon 21-4 in the second and third quarters and coasted to a 51-26 win.

“We had lots of people step up and play hard,” Brownsburg coach Amy Brauman said.

Avon led 12-11 after the first quarter but shot a miserable 1 of 30 in the second and third quarters and totaled just four points.

“We just had a night where we just missed a boatload of shots and with a young team … I told them at the end of the third quarter that it affected them,” Avon coach David Cupp said. “There was a stretch in the second quarter where we got good look after good look after getting offensive rebound after rebound. We just couldn’t finish.”

Brownsburg’s Aliyah Walker’s scored the Bulldogs’ first six points in the game, hitting her second basket and drawing a foul. After Walker missed the ensuing free throw, she followed her shot, rebounded it and converted for two more points.

Leading 9-6, Avon then went on a 6-2 run to end the quarter and took a 12-11 lead.

“I thought Avon came out offensively moving the ball and running quick,” Brauman said. “We had a hard time keeping up with them. Once we settled down a little bit I thought we did much better.”

Walker picked up her third foul with 2:29 left in the first and Crystal Stowers took her place in the post. Stowers scored eight of her 10 points in the second quarter.

“Stowers came in and did a great job getting some buckets early and did a great job rebounding,” Brauman said.

Avon’s Bailey Wule, who led the Orioles with a team-high eight points, scored the only field goal for the Orioles in the second and third quarters.
