MEDORA

Two starters scored in double figures while the other three distributed the ball and made their own baskets, and the five bench players played aggressive and added to the scoring.

That was a winning combination for the Medora girls basketball team in Tuesday’s Henryville Tip-Off Tournament pool game at home against Clarksville, and the Hornets opened the season with a 58-40 victory.

“It really helps that we have a deep bench this year,” said senior post player Montana Wheeler, who had 12 points and six rebounds. “Everyone can play everyone’s role, pretty much. We know our roles, and that’s a big part of it. Everyone does what they have to do, and we just kind of put a puzzle together. We played a lot of team ball.”

Hornets coach Brad McCammon said having a deep bench is a nice change.
