No.10 Zionsville pulls away
in second half for 73-49 win
as BNL drops third straight
ZIONSVILLE – When the Eagles landed, Bedford North Lawrence was stranded.
Class 4-A No.10 Zionsville got hot in the second half and shot down the Stars 73-49 on Saturday afternoon. Rachel McLimore, an Indiana Junior All-Star who transferred into the Zionsville program after last season, scored 26 points as the Eagles handed BNL (4-3) its third straight setback.
After a slow start, BNL rallied to take a 33-31 lead early in the third quarter. Then the roof caved in as the Eagles stroked shot after shot, forced BNL from its zone defense, and left the Stars gasping. Zionsville hit 15 of 19 shots in the second half and went on an 18-0 run to end the suspense.
“They just got hot,” BNL coach Jeff Allen said. “They’re a very good team, and if they can shoot like that, they’re going to be tough to beat. McLimore took over in the third quarter, and they had other kids start shooting lights out. We stayed in the zone as long as we could. I thought we were doing well in our zone, but they started making shots.”
