Regional Rumble: Wildcats vs. Lady Lions

Ranked teams meet in Jasper

(Continued)

Mater Dei is led by IU bound Maura Muensterman. The 6-0 senior guard/forward averages 22.7 points per game, 8.6 assists per game and 7.5 rebounds per game. She shoots 89 percent from the charity stripe and 53 percent from behind the 3-point arc.

Muensterman is aided by 6-2 junior Tori Schickel, who averages 16.8 ppg and 11.5 rpg.

“Mater Dei presents some unique challenges for us. Maura Muensterman is one of the top players in the state of Indiana. She’s a 6-0 guard that can score the ball all over the floor, but she also averages about eight assists per game. We really have to work to contain her, but we can’t get caught watching her, because she’ll create an easy opportunity for someone else,” Marlow said. “The Schickel girl is a 6-2 post player that is athletic and runs the floor very well. We will have to try to limit her touches in the paint and make sure she doesn’t get easy looks around the basket. Other than that, they are a team that really understands their roles and plays within themselves. I think it is a game where whichever team can impose their will and control the tempo, and have a couple of players step up, will win the basketball game. It’s going to be a great day of basketball.”

The Lady Lions had little trouble capturing their sectional title with a 69-45 victory over Lawrenceburg and 63-30 win over Batesville. Rushville is led in scoring by Mackenzie Campbell at 18.0 ppg. Keragan Niehoff averages a double-double with 11.3 ppg and 11.8 rpg.

“This team has great leadership. Our five seniors have been incredible all year, and they will have us ready to go Saturday. They have been through these battles before, know what it takes to have post-season success, and they still want more and have some goals they still want to accomplish. The basketball team has been very locked in over the past few weeks, and very focused on business. They have done a good job of not getting distracted or looking ahead,” Marlow said.
