PURDUE WOMENS BASKETBALL RECRUITING:
Gearlds and Howell headed for sectional titles

    Another milestone passed for Katie Gearlds, as she will go for her first IHSAA sectional title tonight. We first start off with a game report from No. 2 Beech Grove's sectional semifinal win over No. 9 Brebeuf, by beechgroveboiler...

    Katie had 35 tonight as Beech Grove overcame a 4 point half time defecit against Brebeuf to pull out an impressive victory, 62-44. The Currys were in attendance and speaking with and hugging the Gearlds after the game.

    Beech Grove really stepped up the Defense in the second half and caught Brebeuf off guard. I was actually in shock when I saw Katie commit a turnover. But, as usual, she made up for it with a steal, a blocked shot, a couple baskets..etc. She played D in the post in the second half against Smith and Helfrich and Moore switched off of Jackson. Jackson eventually fouled out and got a tech for shoving someone near the end of the game. I'm not sure of Katie's total stats, but they are stellar, as usual. Looks like they will probably play Roncalli tomorow night as Roncalli was winning pretty soundly early in the second quarter.

    Roncalli is a lot better than their record shows. They recently beat a tough and ranked Shelbyville team and appear to be improving each game. They played incredible defense against Shelbyville and were unstoppable in the paint with their two big girls.

    Gearlds finished with 35 points on 10-of-17 from the field, 10-of-10 from the line, and 5-of-7 from the perimeter. Beech Grove (23-1) plays Roncalli (7-14) for the sectional championship tonight.

    Meanwhile in other Class 3A action at Alexandria, undefeated Alexandria (22-0) continued to roll through sectionals with a 69-56 win over Delta. Here's a game report from Alexfan1...

    Jodi Howell scores 31 to lead Alexandria over No. 7 Delta Eagles 69-56. The Lady Tigers will play Mount Vernon on Saturday at 7:30. The Tigers were down 5-13 after one quarter. Jodi scored 17 of the teams 25 first half points, eight of those points came from the free throw line. The Lady Tigers would mount a come back in the second to bring the score to 30-25 after two quarters. Whatever was said at halftime must have worked. The Tigers would outscore the Eagles 29-7 in the 3rd. Howell hit 5-of-8 shots in the 3rd. Howell would also pull down seven rebounds to end what seemed to be the most wierd game of the year for the Lady Tigers.

    Rick Teverbaugh of the Anderson Herald Bulletin commented that at one point, Howell hit a three-pointer "from the outer reaches of Reggie Miller's range," to put Alexandria into a lead they would not surrender.
