---- — Zionsville's girls' basketball team got hot from the three-point line to start the game and never cooled off Friday, Nov. 22, night against Hamilton Heights.

The Eagles (2-1) won handily 65-48 over the Lady Huskies in a game that coach Andy Maguire said was one of the best he has seen in a while.

"We played awesome," Maguire said. "I'm really proud of them. That's the first time that we played really well from start to finish. We played smart. We even fought through adversity."

The two teams have met annually since the 2001-02 season, with Hamilton Heights winning nine of the previous 13 match-ups and five in a row.

The Huskies were the Class 3A runners-up last season and topped the Eagles by 30 last year.

Senior Kirsten Castelli said the team knew how good Heights was.

"This was a really big win for us," Castelli said. "The past few years, we have really struggled against Hamilton Heights. This win was huge for us and will help us push through the rest of the season."

Senior Laurie King led the Eagles with 17 points and 8 rebounds.
