Lady Tribe dominates Rebels

ANDERSON — In sports, timing can be everything. Unfortunately for the Muncie Southside Lady Rebels, timing can also be a killer.

In their final matchup with the old Olympic conference rival, the Anderson Lady Tribe dominated from start to finish on their way to a 102-26 win Tuesday night at Anderson High School.

Coming off of a tough loss to Lawrence North and facing another tough game Saturday against North Central, Anderson coach Chad Cook did not allow his team to take a night off against a Southside squad that is in their final year of existence.

“It was the wrong place on the schedule for Muncie Southside” Cook said. “In between Lawrence North and North Central, we don’t have a chance to let up any. We’re trying to build through a long season, this is one step closer to what we’re trying to build.”

Anderson started fast, jumping to a 16-1 lead on its way to a 26-9 edge after the first quarter. The Lady Tribe did it with defense and an unselfish style of play on the offensive end of the court. Muncie Southside had six turnovers in the quarter and only three made baskets.

The balance and unselfishness showed on the scoresheet for Anderson as six players had points in the quarter, led by Chelsea Bentley’s seven. Anderson continued the same style in the second quarter and led 50-15 at the break.

With a 35-point lead at halftime, the challenge for Anderson in the second half was going to be more of letting up or keeping their foot on the pedal. Cook challenged his team in the huddle prior to the start to stay sharp and mentally tough.

The Lady Tribe responded, forcing 10 Lady Rebel turnovers in the third quarter and outscoring Southside 26-3. “We really wanted to focus on being mentally tough,” Cook said. “Even being up 40, you can get lackadaisical. We lost mental toughness against Lawrence North, we let that (game) slip away mentally. Tonight we jumped on it and stayed on it, I’m real proud of them.”

    Bjoern Werner's rookie training camp was rather quiet. The German-born outside linebacker went through individual drills and worked hard in full-team sessions, but he was overwhelmed by all the new information he was processing. And it was holding him back. When the season started, Werner was further set back by a foot injury that cost him three games, and he finished the year with just 2.5 sacks. Then the former Florida State star went to work.

  • SPT - HB0731 - Colts Camp - Fleener - 206 Colts focusing on situational improvement One year ago, the focus in Indianapolis Colts training camp was on turnovers.

The theme at Anderson University carried over to the field, and the Colts' 14 turnovers were the fewest in the NFL last year.
