The Hoosier Crossroads Conference opener for Zionsville has been quite a challenge for the girl's basketball team in recent years.
A solid McCutcheon team had beaten the Eagles eight straight times coming into the Nov. 26 game at Zionsville. The visiting Mavericks were able to make it nine in a row, but not after a strong challenge by Zionsville.
The Eagles fell 44-40 after some timely free-throw shooting for McCutcheon in the final minute.
