No. 7 Huskies handle PHHS

Hamilton Heights halts Arabians' winning streak

PENDLETON, Ind. — The Pendleton Heights perfect girls basketball season ended with not a whimper but a bang here Wednesday night.

The Arabians’ win streak stopped at five as No. 7-ranked Hamilton Heights used speed and eye-popping shooting to roll over PH 71-46.

The Huskies led by just a 28-25 count at halftime, but in that locker room during intermission, the seeds of victory were sown by the visitors.

“They got a challenge at halftime,” said Hamilton Heights coach Tod Windlan. “We had three kids that didn’t practice earlier this week due to illness. I told them at halftime that great players find a way to suck it up during adversity. They responded.”

A revival meeting couldn’t have produced a more stirring response.

Pendleton Heights failed to hit a field goal in the first 5:15 of the third quarter and the Huskies hit 10-of-18 from the field. Hamilton Heights outscored the Arabians 25-4 in the period. PH hit only one field goal in the quarter and had 12 turnovers during that stretch.

“We were getting some open shots but none of them were falling,” said PH coach Holly Hollinger. “It wasn’t Kenzie’s (Gustin) night. But I told her to keep shooting. We’re better shooters than we showed. We were tired, but I couldn’t sub with the score being what it was.”

The Huskies had no such problem finding the net, even from long range. They hit 11-of-21 from beyond the arc and those 11 shots were made by five different shooters. Dakota Weatherford topped the list with 21 points, followed by Caitlin Matchett with 19 and Katelyn Rednour with 16.

The lone PH bright spot on offense was Kiawna Cottrell, who hit 5-of-7 shots for 11 points. Nobody else scored in double figures. Taylor Siefken had nine points and a team-high seven rebounds. Gustin was 2-of-11 for six points.

“I think the speed of the game bothered them,” Windlan said. “I had seen them play three or four times, so I had a good idea what they wanted to do. We played them even on the boards (31-25 in the Huskies favor) and forced turnovers (25). When we do those things we have a good chance.”

“I told them in the locker room, that if we were going to have a bad shooting night and everybody has one, at least it wasn’t a conference game,” Hollinger said.

The Arabians won’t have that luxury in their next game on Saturday afternoon when they face No. 8 Mount Vernon.
