Dropping hot potato
SENECA — For a while in the first half of Monday's Interstate Eight Conference girls basketball game it looked like the fourth quarter would be anti-dramatic. After all Lisle was asserting itself as the consensus No. 1 seed in the league over hosting Seneca by chiseling out a nine-point lead with 5:53 to go before halftime.
However, a time out by Lady Irish coach Barb Beck seemed to get things turned around and because of it there was meaningful basketball to be played in the final minutes. When it was all said and done in the final I-8 game before the league tournament though, Lisle had managed to escape with a 44-41 victory when Irish guard Chelsie McCormick's heave ho from halfcourt fell short at the final horn.
Beck said the biggest difference between the early part of the game and the remainder was her team's patience on offense.
