Norwell Girls, 18-0

Norwell 54, East Noble 36. The Lady Knights move to 18-0, winning by an average of over 20 points per game throughout the season thus far. Romping through the Northeast Hoosier Conference.

Knights take 4th NHC crown in a row
Norwell came into this game without the services of two starters due to injury: Rupright (strained hamstring) and Alyssa Smith (torn ACL).

Yet, just as the Knights motto has been all year — “Next man up” — up to the occasion rose junior Amanda McAfee. McAfee caught fire in the second quarter, scoring nine of Norwell’s 14 points, including two free throws at the end of the half to give them a 26-25 lead.

“Amanda was just relentless tonight,” said Thornton. “She was all over the glass, she was looking to score, and she gave us the nice inside outside game we needed.”

Nice Game!
