COLUMBUS- Columbus North senior Imani Guy celebrated her 18th birthday Saturday against Terre Haute North.
She had a great reason to celebrate as she put up a game high 20 points and leading the Bull Dogs to a 76-28 girls basketball Conference Indiana victory.
“I was really excited for this game and playing for my team,” Guy said. “It was a lot of fun. Everyone was getting me hyped up. It was a lot of fun to go out there and play.”
It took the Patriots (6-7, 1-2) about three hours to arrive to Columbus because of traffic conditions. They should have taken a U-turn instead because Columbus North jumped all the way out to a 32-5 lead midway through the second quarter and cruised from that point forward.
Hannah Bunch led the Patriots with seven points. Mackenzie Russell and Lauren Curley each added five.
The Bull Dogs (8-3, 3-0) offense clicked the entire game. They showed great chemistry and finished with four players scoring in double figures. Maliah Howard- Bass finished with 11 points. Ashlyn Huffman also scored 11 points. Liz Tynan contributed 10 points off the bench.
After suffering a disappointing loss to Seymour Tuesday, Columbus North looks to be back on track.
“The loss to Seymour has really pushed us to play hard all the time,” Guy said. “It woke us up that we just can’t be lackadaisical and play hard on every play.”
Huffman agreed.
“This is the part of the season where we define who are as a team and whether if we are going to be one of the top teams in the state or not,” Huffman said. “I lot of people have put us down and we are going to be coming under the radar. Today, we definitely did what we needed to do to win.”
