Lady 'Stang States Only Undefeated Team
January 5, 2014By Melvin Webster of Bishop Brossart High School
Suddenly there was ONE. When the talented Lady 'Stangs of Bishop Brossart dehydrated the Lady Camels on Campbell Co. Saturday night they not only secured the Crosstown Shootout Varsity Sweep. (The Boys won 60-41 last night) But their 50-37 victory assured that Bishop Brossart is now the ONLY team in the entire State of Kentucky without a loss for the 2013-2014 season. They are now 11-0 and more importantly are 3-0 (Calvary remaining) in District Seeding games virtually assuring the Lady 'Stangs will aquire the all important No. 1 District Seed for the 37th District Tournament in February. Only eight teams have one loss so far.
Sarah Futscher had a monster game for the 'Stangs at the Campbell Co. Middle School. She finished with 23 points with 17 coming in the first half when Brossart took a 32-15 lead into the locker room. Sophomore Emily Schultz also came up big for the green and white with 11 points and 10 rebounds. Sophomore Abby King continues her hot shooting from outside hitting 3 of 4 shots for 7 points.
The Lady 'Stangs pulled away in the first half shotting 65% to just 30% for the now 3-8 Lady Camels.
Following a string of impressive games this was not one of their best but it was a crucial win.
Futscher hit 10 of 12 hots from two point range, nailed her only 3pt shot and dropped in 9 of 11 from the line. Add in 5 rebounds, 3 assists and two blocks and you have a clutch effort.
Brossart dominated most ket categories on the night outshooting the piurple and gold 48.9% to 35.7%, outrebounded them 30-24, and dominated the paint 18 to 8.
Their largest lead was 40-21 after a 21-3 run. The lead only exchanged hands one time early in the game.
Next up for the 'Stangs is Newport Public on Monday and then NCC at home also on Wednesday to head into the 10th Region All A Classic at NKU.
