Here’s a look at results from Northeast Corner Conference schools from Week 1 (Nov. 5-10) of the 2012-13 Indiana girls basketball season …

Despite shooting just 37 percent – including 2 of 10 from behind the 3-point line – and going just 6 of 12 from the free throw line, the Panthers (2-0) put to it the Eagles (0-1) defensively with 20 steals.

Shawna Carbone led Prairie Heights with a double-double of 18 points and 11 rebounds, while Rebekah Frey matched her with 11 boards.

East Noble roars past visiting Eastside, 60-25
Host East Noble held Eastside to only 27 field goal attempts and further limited the Blazers to just 26 percent from the field Nov. 10 in a 60-25 victory in both schools’ season-opening game.

An all-out defensive assault by the Knights (1-0) created 35 turnovers as Eastside put up just five points over the second and third quarters, when East Noble enjoyed a 37-5 scoring advantage.

Eastside was led by Brianna Moore, who had five points and six rebounds.

Fremont fends off visiting Lakewood Park Christian, 63-59
Host Fremont shot 52 percent from inside the 3-point line Nov. 10 in holding off visiting Lakewood Park Christian for a 63-59 win.

That surprisingly torrid shooting in the season-opening game was key for the Eagles, who survived a tight contest with Lakewood Park (1-1) despite 42 turnovers.

Fremont was led by the double-double of Miranda White (23 points and 16 rebounds to go along with five steals) and Shea Rhonehouse (13 points, nine boards, five assists).

3A #7 Angola rallies to defeat DeKalb, 55-47
After scoring only four points in the third quarter to fall behind 38-35, Class 3A seventh-ranked Angola rallied with a 22-9 fourth period Nov. 9 to post a 55-47 win at DeKalb.

The Hornets (2-0) did themselves no favors by missing 20 of 26 3-point attempts, but they hung around by shooting 47 percent from inside the arc. That accuracy, plus 15 steals, was critical for the win.

Senior Rachel Rinehart led Angola with 24 points, six assists, and six steals. She was joined in double-figure-scoring by sophomore Claire Grubb, who had 10 points.

The box score:

Team         Q1     Q2     Q3     Q4     Final
Angola         11     18     4     22     55
DeKalb         13     7     18     9     47

Wawasee’s Knafel goes for 42 in 64-41 win at Westview
Senior KiLee Knafel outscored the opposing team 42-41 Nov. 9 as Wawasee cruised to a 64-41 victory at Westview in the season-opening contest for both schools.

The Warriors were buoyed by a 9-of-21 effort (43 percent) from behind the 3-point line, which actually was higher than their shooting percentage inside the arc (17 of 37 for 36 percent). An even 20 steals helped Wawasee defensively in the shadows of Knafel’s huge night at the other end.

The box score:

Team         Q1     Q2     Q3     Q4     Final
Wawasee     6     22     16     20     64
Westview     4     14     11     12     41

Schrock’s seven 3-pointers lift Northridge past West Noble, 75-42
Senior guard Madison Schrock tied a school record for 3-pointers in a game (seven) en route to scoring a career-high 25 points Nov. 8 as Northridge opened its season in high-flying fashion with a 75-42 victory at West Noble.

Schrock tied her twin sister, Haley, for the trifecta honor. Haley knocked down seven threes last year in an 82-29 romp past Concord.

The Raiders prevailed despite being outshot 50 percent to 39 percent from inside the 3-point line. They did so by canning 12 of 25 three attempts (48 percent) and going 17 of 23 (74 percent) from the free throw line.

West Noble was led by junior Kelsie Peterson, who had a team-high 15 points and five rebounds.

The box score:

Team         Q1     Q2     Q3     Q4     Final
Northridge     21     25     16     13     75
West Noble     12     8     13     9     42

Prairie Heights survives at Hamilton, 32-26
Prairie Heights overcame 27 percent shooting, 20 turnovers, and only 12 first-half points Nov. 8 in a 32-26 win at Hamilton in both schools’ season-opening game.

Prairie Heights led the low-scoring affair 12-5 at halftime. But Hamilton rallied with twice as many points as it had in the first half in a 10-6 third quarter, making it an 18-15 game heading to the fourth.

Sophomore Tressa Terry just missed a double-double with 13 points and nine rebounds for the victorious Panthers, who also got eight points from junior Allison Young.

The box score:

Team             Q1     Q2     Q3     Q4     Final
Prairie Heights         5     7     6     14     32
Hamilton         4     1     10    11     26
