Lady Tribe squeeze past Miller

NOBLESVILLE — Anderson’s pressure defense finally squeezed the life out of the Noblesville offense as the Indians turned up a 56-50 victory over the Millers on Friday night at The Mill in Noblesville.

The Indians forced 28 turnovers in the game and held the Millers to just four points in the final quarter as they rallied from a six-point deficit in the final eight minutes.

“We caused them to turn it over a lot,” said Anderson coach Chad Cook. “We were able to use the press a lot and defensively, even if they got through it we were in good defensive position. To hold them to four points (in the fourth) is a good sign of what we are doing in the half court defense.”

Da’Sha Boyd led the Indians with 15 points, seven rebounds and seven steals in 31 minutes, hitting 5-of-13 field goals and all four of her free throws, including a 3-pointer.

Chelsea Bentley had 14 points, eight rebounds and four steals, making 3-of-9 field goals and 6-of-9 from the charity stripe, including a pair of 3-pointers. Dabriona Williams was also in double figures with 13 points, five rebounds, two assists and five steals.

“In the first half we did a lot of wrong things, but we stuck with it,” said Cook, whose team trailed 31-27 at the half. “We did a better job of executing in the second half and only had three turnovers.”

Anderson shot 37 percent from the field, including 4-of-10 from 3-point range and also made 14-of-20 from the free-throw line. Noblesville finished at 36 percent shooting, including 6-of-14 from behind the arc and 12-of-16 from the charity stripe.

The Indians had a 36-31 advantage on the boards, including 13-9 on the offensive glass. Anderson also had the edge in points in the paint (28-16), turnovers (22-28), points off turnovers (17-13), second chance points (12-11) and steals (20-12).
