With the win, Ben Davis improved to 5-2 overall, 4-1 in-conference. Center Grove and Carmel also have one conference loss. The Giants play Carmel in the regular season finale.
With a game against winless Lawrence North next on the schedule, the Giants are focused on winning out and taking at least a share of the MIC crown.
“Winning the conference is definitely a goal,” Kirshner said. “Winning the MIC is kind of like a state championship because it’s so good, but we haven’t thought about sectionals yet. We told them this morning, ‘This is what’s in front of us — take care of business Friday night and you get a shot at Carmel for a MIC championship, but we have to stay level-headed, grounded, and we have to keep working.’ We’re not good enough to take any days or weeks off.”
