(La Porte, IN) - The La Porte High School girls’ basketball team is putting together a game plan for competing against one of the best teams in the state in the regional tournament The 13-10 Lady Slicers take on No. 2 ranked Crown Point on Saturday. The regionals are taking place at Slicer Gym.
Head Coach Sarah DeShone said her players will try and slow down the game to counter the speed and hot shooters of the 21-1 Bulldogs. DeShone said her players are also working hard to get better at boxing out the Bulldogs on the offensive and defense boards. The more physical players from Crown Point grabbed about 20 offensive rebounds in defeating the Slicers 70-33 during the regular season.
DeShone said working to her squad’s advantage, perhaps, is playing at home and having post season experience. The Lady Slicers advantaged to the regional finals last year. "It’s nice they have the experience from last year. Hopefully, the nerves are a little less than what they would be if it was their first time going,” DeShone said.
Tip-off is scheduled at 12:30 p.m. on Saturday at Slicers Gym.
