The No.1 Pike Lady Red Devis walked into the Decatur Central Regional semifinal with crazy swag and a 24-1 record to go with it. The New Palestine Lady Dragons weren’t intimidated by their presence because they had earned a right to be there too. Pike eventually walked outta the joint with the same swag they came in with knockin’ the Dragons off 42-34.
From the openin’ tip girlz went to work playin’ as aggressively as they knew how on both ends of the floor. Pike’s super star Angel Baker got into foul trouble early in the first quarter with 2 and had to sit the entire second quarter.
They were able to get to the break up 19-10 despite gettin’ destroyed on the boards. New Palestine seemed to be able to grab EVERYTHING comin’ off of the glass but couldn’t buy a bucket at the Flea Market.
After the break the lid seemed to be removed for New Pal and they got right back into the ball game. Gettin’ as close as 24-20. They continued to rebound the ball and they took advantage of Pike’s inability to shoot free throws.
The Lady Red Devils finished the night shootin’ 9 of 17 from the charity stripe. However, Michaela White took over for Pike finishin’ with 10 points and crazy defense!!! Mikia Keith wasn’t playin’ around either droppin’ off 10 points at Big Momma’s house too. Angel Baker finished with 8 points, despite limited time on the floor.
New Pal made a final push to cut it to 37-34 before Pike put their foot on the gas to drive off to the Regional final tonight! Stop me when I start lyin’!
The G is excluded from the endings of all words because the G is near and dear to my heart because I’m from “The G” which is Gary, Indiana. So I only use the G when I’m talkin’ about “The G!”
