Lady Tribe ends long stretch by crushing Carmel

CARMEL — The affects of the recent winter blast that wreaked havoc on the region are still being felt by the Anderson Lady Tribe. But, the team has persevered through the altered schedule, which forced it into playing five games in six days.

The final obstacle in the gauntlet was the Carmel Greyhounds, and the Indians show little sign of fatigue in a 73-62 victory.

Anderson improved to 11-3 overall and a perfect 6-0 since the calendar changed to 2014.

“Even though we had so many games, we always come out hungry,” Anderson junior Ania Daniels said. “We don't ever give up, don’t let up, that is what we say.”

Anderson used a pair of 13-0 runs, one in the first quarter and one in the third, to give the Lady Tribe its first lead early and its final lead late.

The game-deciding run came less than a minute after the teams came out after halftime, and Carmel had just taken the lead 38-37. Senior Samia Carter found Indiana University-East commit Da’Sha Boyd under the bucket for an easy layup.

Boyd converted a field goal plus a free throw to cap the run as the lead was stretched to 12.

“Coming out in the third quarter, you want to make a good statement coming out of halftime, and we were able to do that in the third quarter,” Anderson coach Chad Cook said. “A lot of that was mental after this many games, and we were able to be mentally tough.”

During that nearly three-minute time span, Anderson converted on 7-of-10 shooting, 3-of-3 from the free-throw line, and generated four steals.

Anderson’s largest lead was 19 at 73-54 with just less than two minutes to play.

Daniels and Boyd led the Indians in scoring with a game-high 22 and 20 points, respectively. It was Boyd’s third 20-plus scoring performance and Daniels first.
