Terre Haute North falls in double overtime to Ben Davis

TERRE HAUTE — Ben Davis was stronger down the finish in girls high school basketball Saturday and the Giants were able to defeat Terre Haute North 71-65 in two overtimes.

North took a 35-31 lead into the fourth frame and led by as many as eight points, but Ben Davis outscored the Patriots 11-6 in the final 2 minutes and 35 seconds to gain a 51-51 time.

North lost both Adrienne Pritchard and Sierra Sykes via the five-foul route in that time. Pritchard had 20 points and 11 rebounds, while Sykes had four points and three boards.

Taylor McDaniel fouled out for the Giants. She did not score and had three points.

North scored the first five points of the first overtime, three of them by Layne Curley, and she gave the Patriots a 58-56 lead by hitting two free throws with less than 50 seconds left. But Adaleena Sibande got a bucket to tie and North was not able to score in the final 10 seconds.

Ben Davis scored the first six points of the second extra session and had a 66-60 lead before Jennifer Bendickson hit a 3-pointer but the Giants got the next five points for a 71-63 lead.

Pritchard and Curley each had 20 points for the Patriots. Curley was 12 of 13 from the free-throw line and had four steals.

Bendickson finished with 11 points and Abby Howes had 10 with six steals.

Sibande led the Giants in scoring with 24 points, while Danielle Cuttino had 23 points and 15 rebounds in addition to five steals.

North (9-3 overall, 1-1 Metropolitan Interscholastic Conference) will not play again until Jan. 4, entertaining Evansvillle Bosse.

North coach Mike Allen thought his team was well-prepared for its third game of the week. “We did some things in the second half that I knew we could do. We get in foul trouble and that changes what you do offensively and defensively,” he said.

“Unfortunately, it is that time of the year and we played Santa Claus today. We kind of gave one away. I hope it is a learning experience. We told the girls that Ben Davis’ best offense is their defense. Points off turnovers was the difference … we just did not have the size once Adrienne and Sierra fouled out,” he added.

Ben Davis will take a 5-3 mark into a home game with Terre Haute South on Monday. The Giants are 3-1 in MIC games.

“Our season has been up and down, just like the game today. We play pretty well at times and [not so well] at times. Today, we did both,” said Ben Davis coach Joe Lentz.

“North is a very good team and the players do exactly what Mike wants them to do. They packed it in and made it tough for us. When we do the things we do well, we can be pretty good.”

North was a 39-37 winner in the junior varsity game marked by a wild finish. The Patriots rallied from a 15-2 deficit to take the lead in the third canto and held it until Ben Davis scored with six seconds left to go up 37-36.

North won it on Lauren Curley’s 3-pointer at the buzzer. She led the team in scoring with with 13 points and Kelsey Young had 11.

  • Andy Amey: Just a small trip to talk about this time

    To paraphrase Carl Spackler, the heavy stuff’s not going to come for quite awhile. So while it’s true that I’m back from a week’s vacation, it’s not time — yet — for the big vacation column. Trips to Noblesville, Brunswick and Reelsville, while providing some nice family time, don’t really have the cachet to fill newspaper space.
