LEBANON-After already losing one Sagamore Conference game, the Crawfordsville girls' basketball team does not want to fall into a 0-2 hole in the conference.

"We already have one conference loss to Tri-West so we'll need to be playing our best basketball in order to compete and have a chance to win down the stretch," said Crawfordsville head coach Tony Thomas.

It will not be easy for Crawfordsville (5-2, 0-1 SAC) though as they will face a Lebanon team is the three-time defending sectional champion.

"Lebanon is always good, but they lost a great class in four seniors," said Thomas. "So there are a lot of unknowns."

Lebanon enters the game with a 3-2 record. Sophomore Kristen Spolyar averaged 21.5 points per game through the first four games and also led the team in rebounds and assists. (Stats do not include the 51-40 victory over Greenfield Central on Tuesday.)

"We always know that we have to handle their pressure we have to concentrate more this game on us: handling the basketball, making the extra pass, taking good shots, boxing out and staying out of foul trouble," said Thomas.

Kassidy Bonebrake has led the Lady Athenians through seven games by averaging 16.6 points per game followed by Lacey Garrett with 12.6 points per contest.

The game is the first of a double header with the boys team and it is scheduled to start at 6 p.m.
