Red Devils oust Orioles

BROWNSBURG — On paper, Tuesday night’s first round sectional contest between Avon (5-17) and Pike (17-4) looked like the Red Devils would outclass the Orioles.

Unfortunately for Avon, that was the outcome as the Red Devils defeated Avon, 61-31.

Led by senior Asia Coates, Pike held a 19-7 lead at the end of the first quarter.

Coates got help from sophomore Brittany Ward as the two combined for 27 points and contributed to a 40-16 halftime lead over the Orioles.

With a young roster and a tough schedule, large deficits seemed to be a situation Avon became accustomed to throughout this past season and Tuesday night was no different.

“I just told them to play harder,” Avon coach David Cupp said. “With the long season we’ve had, we’ve definitely taken our lumps and our schedule is really hard so I just wanted effort and I wanted their mentality to be that we were going to compete tonight and unfortunately we didn’t do that.”

Avon sophomore Brooke Peters scored the Orioles’ only third quarter basket with a 3-pointer that added to her team-high eight points.

Pike started the second half off the same way they finished the first half, full court pressing Avon and suffocating the Orioles on inbound passes. It did not get any easier for Avon, in fact, it only got harder as the reality began to set in for Cupp and his lone senior Megan Price.

“I’m a better human being from being around her (Price) for two years,” Cupp said. “She is as high-quality as they come and she is just a pure heart, smart kid who is passionate about life and about people. I want my 2-year old daughter to be just like Megan Price. I’d be a very happy and humble father if it turned out that way.”
