The Zionsville Lady Eagles are having troubles putting two good halves of basketball together.
Wednesday, Jan. 22, night was another example of that, as the Eagles saw a four-point halftime lead disappear with a bad third quarter, and Brownsburg topped the Eagles 64-50.
The Bulldogs out-scored Zionsville 26-6 in the decisive quarter and shot 11 of 16 from the field.
“I don’t know what the difference really was,” Zionsville head coach Andy Maguire said. “I asked them what they thought in the locker room and no one really had an answer. It looked like we came out after halftime happy to be ahead and complacent. They came out on a mission, like they were going to get the job done. We did not come out focused and ready to go. To their credit, they shot the ball well in that quarter. I wish I had all the answers though.”
The Eagles got off to a good start in the game.
After trailing 10-4 early, Zionsville went on a 7-1 run to tie the game at 11.
The teams traded baskets the rest of the quarter, with Zionsville leading 17-16 after the first eight minutes.
The Eagles led nearly the entire second quarter and took a four-point lead into the break.
