Last Game: 69-26 win over DeKalb

Next Game: vs Carroll(Nov. 30)

The Bruins remain perfect now 4 games into the season dominating each of those games winning on an average score of 51.2 PPG. Leading the effort has been Destini Craig who has put up 16.7 PPG on an impressive 74% clip along with 5.3 rebounds and 4 steals a game. The Jackson twins have also been key contributors as they have combined for over 26 points a game. The next game for the Bruins may be one of the biggest of the season as they face the Carroll Chargers who are also off to a hot start this season. 

2. Carroll(5-0)

Conference Record: 0-0

SAC Rank: 

Last Game: 71-23 win over East Noble

Next Game: @ Dekalb (Nov. 29)

The dynamic duo of seniors in Taylor Fordyce and Kayla Gibbs has been the leading force for the Chargers to start off this season. Fordyce has put up 15.4 PPG along with 3.8 assists as Gibbs has put up 15.2 PPG combined with 6.2 rebounds and 3.2 steals a game. Underclassmen Jersey Paul and Lily George have also come up big for the Chargers as they have put up a combined 19 points a game. This team has been put to the test a couple of times so far this season but when they face the Bruins on November 30th that is going to be the biggest test of the year so far and one that potentially could decide the fate of the SAC this season.

3. Homestead(6-2)

Conference Record: 2-0

SAC Rank: 1st

Last Game: 58-49 win over Pike

Next Game: @ Carroll(Dec. 2)

The Spartans have had some ups and downs to start off the season as they have dropped two games so far this season one coming against the Noblesville Millers a top team and the state and the other coming off of an unbelievable half-court shot in overtime against Huntington North. In their last outing, Sparty got a nice bounce-back victory over a solid Pike squad. The leading force for Homestead in the win was Emma Ruest who scored 20 points along with 5 assists and 5 rebounds. On the season Ruest, Myah Epps, Ali Stephens, and Molly Stock have been crucial for the Spartans as each has averaged at least 8.5 PPG. I have talked about how important the game between Northrop and Carroll is going to be on Wednesday. Well, two days after that one there will be another showdown of top SAC squads as the Spartans face the Chargers.

Last Game: 74-63 win over Fishers

Next Game: @ South Side(Dec. 2)

The Panthers started off the year slow against a very difficult schedule and have since won three straight. The most recent of the Panthers win was the most impressive beating a Fisher’s team that is widely considered to be top 10 in the state 74-63. In the win, it was Johnea Donahue coming up big with 25 points, 4 rebounds, 3 assists, and 3 steals. Ciara Sims was also big for the Panthers as she put up 16 points on 7 for 8 shooting.

On the season it has been both Gorman and Emilia Diaz leading the way for the Generals as they are the two double-digit scorers for this squad averaging a combined 22 PPG. The Generals will look to increase their win streak to 5 in a game against the New Haven Bulldogs.

Freshman Miley Wareing has also been big for the Knights as she has been doing it all over the court with 9.3 points, 6.5 rebounds, 2.5 steals, and 1.5 blocks a game. The Knights will now look to snap their losing streak against the Huntington North Vikings.

9. Concordia(2-2)

Conference Record: 0-2

SAC Rank: T-9

Last Game: 84-55 loss against Norwell

Next Game: vs Leo(Nov. 29)

The Cadets suffered a tough loss in their last game against Norwell after they were able to beat the Adams Central Flying Jets 67-45. The Cadets will now try and bounce back from the loss when they play the Leo Lions. 

10. North Side(0-7)

Conference Record: 0-1

SAC Rank: 8th

Last Game: 50-48 OT loss against Lakewood Park

Next Game: vs New Haven(Dec. 6)

The Legends came just short of getting their first win of the season against Lakewood Park losing 50-48 in overtime. Kaleah Williams was the leading scorer in that game for the Legends as she put up 18 points. Defensively the team as a whole was impressive getting 21 steals in the game including 6 from Williams. The Legends’ aggressive defense has certainly caused some problems for their opponents forcing lots of turnovers and the Legends will look to once again cause some problems when they face the New Haven Bulldogs.
