Giants fall in first sectional loss since 2005-06

(Continued)

BROWNSBURG —

Brownsburg’s Lindsey Low grabbed the loose ball and was fouled with 0.8 seconds remaining. She missed the free throw, but it was not enough time for Ben Davis to do anything but give a desperation full-court heave.

Mavunga scored a game-high 21 points, but was limited and restricted by the Giants’ 6-foot-3 center Danielle Cuttino guarding her.

“I don’t know if I should say this, but she has a hard time with people her size,” Lentz said. “She’s not used to it and we’ve got people her size. We’ve got people who can body her up.”

Brownsburg led 19-18 after a tightly-contested first half. Ben Davis started the third quarter with a purpose. The Giants went on a 10-2 to take the eight-point lead, the largest lead of the game by either team.

“Defense keyed it,” Lentz said. “We got a couple steals, we converted, we got some rebounds and we stopped them at the other end.”

Bulldogs senior Kayle Comer ended the run when she connected on the only Brownsburg 3-pointer of the night with 2:06 remaining in the third.

“That was big, it always gets us going when she hits a three,” Brauman said. “It always fires us up a little bit. They were playing really good defense and we couldn’t get her open.”

Mavunga scored a layup as time expired in the third quarter to cut the deficit to 31-27.

With 2:45 remaining in the game, Mavunga, the North Carolina recruit, tied the score at 37-37 with an open layup.

Giants freshman Taylor McDaniel made a clutch jumper to break the tie with 1:58 left in the game.

Comer was fouled with a minute remaining and connected on 1 of 2 free throws to give her 12 points on the evening and bring the Bulldogs within a point.

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