Girls fight through short-handed conditions

ANDERSON — Three area girls battled through short-handed situations in the senior portion of the Indiana Class Basketball All-Star Classic Saturday at Anderson University.

Not all of the girls slated to play in the two girls games, the combined 1A/2A and the combined 3A/4A contest, actually came to play.

That left Elwood's Jessie Noone on a team with seven players instead of 10 in the opener and the Anderson duo of Chelsea Bentley and Da'Sha Boyd to also play on a seven-member team. That meant extended minutes for all three.

"Running up and down the court is different than what I've seen doing," said Noone, who ended her prep career on the softball diamond a couple of weeks back. "I've been focusing on softball. I missed a couple of (traveling team) games today to play in this."

In the 3A/4A game, there were similar reactions from both Bentley and Boyd. They both appeared a bit winded in the moments following the game.

"There was a lot of up and down, for sure," said Bentley. "I have been working on my shooting but not a lot of end to end playing."

"I was a little bit lucky in that I have been working out," said Boyd. "I've been playing AAU ball. But this game was a lot of up and down. It was a bit tiring."

Noone played for the Benson Red team and it trailed at halftime. But in the second half, the Red team rallied to take the lead. Noone was a big part of that, scoring eight points in a period of five possessions. The White Wilkerson team recovered and won the contest 54-49.

"It was a good experience," said Noone. "I was able to meet new people and I enjoy that."
