Brownsburg stuns No. 18 Ben Davis

(Continued)

Olmstead and Courtney combined for 21 of Brownsburg’s points. The Bulldogs had two other scorers in double figures as senior Hannah Mingus tallied 10 and sophomore Aliyah Walker led the team with 12.

Ben Davis had its chances to win the game despite shooting the ball very poorly, along with other factors that led to the loss.

“We should’ve and could’ve shot better,” Ben Davis coach Joe Lentz said. “We did not block out as well as I would have hoped. There were so many occasions we tried to get them into an offensive set and they went around and wouldn’t get into it. We ran out of energy and the things I wanted to do, we couldn’t.”

The Giants hit a paltry 18 of 67 from the floor, shooting .268 percent. There was a stretch from the second quarter to the end of the third where Ben Davis scored just four field goals.

“We have to focus more on getting the ball in the basket and executing offensively,” Lentz said. “I don’t know what we shot percentage-wise, but it wasn’t good and we still had a shot to win the game.”

Ben Davis jumped out to a 5-0 advantage and led by as many as 11 headed into the second quarter. With Brownsburg within two at 13-11, Ben Davis’ Erynn Young went on her own 6-0 run and Taylor McDaniel capped the run with a 3-pointer from close to mid-court at the buzzer for a 22-11 advantage.

Adaleena Sibande led Ben Davis with 12 points and nine rebounds. AeRianna Harris pulled down 13 rebounds and scored five points. Nine players scored for the Giants.

Both teams play rivalry and conference games at 7:30 p.m. this Friday. Brownsburg (2-0) travels to Avon and Ben Davis (0-1) visits Warren central on the second of its four away games to start the season.
