T.F. North will face Hillcrest Thursday night in the sectional championship. The game tips off at 7:30pm over at Hillcrest high school.

Hillcrest 70, Rich Central 56

Now in the second game.... Hillcrest Lady Hawks faced Rich Central Olympians, a rematch from the Hillcrest Classic, where the Lady Hawks won 66-55. But that was then, this now... Would this game be any different? Unfortunately, not for the Olympians... The Lady Hawks were back playing in their gym in front of their home crowd and the DePaul recruit Uniquah Hampton picked up right where she left off in December knocking down almost her jersey number (33).

The Lady Hawks jumped out to a 16-0 start in the first 3 minutes of play.

“Uniquah put us on our shoulders and said, ‘I want this season to continue,’ ” Hillcrest head coach John Maniatis said. “She grabbed that momentum herself.”

On the other side of the ball, the Olympians were not going to stop fighting... they were able to get the game within 9 points behind the court authority of senior Janae Smith, who finished the contest with 27. "We lost our composure," she said after the game. "They were able to break us down. We came into the game ready to go but when we got on the floor, we started playing individual games plans."

During their (Olympians) run, the Lady Hawks were able to stop the bleeding and play better defense. "We had to get a stop,” Hampton said of the Hawks’ defense. “In Rich Central, I saw a team that was going to play their ‘A’ game.”

So if the Rich Central brought their A-game, Hillcrest played an A-plus match with some extra credit. The extra credit came in the form of 5'2"  sophomore guard Samirah Ali,  who knocked down 15 of her own.

The Lady Hawks move on to the sectional championship in another rematch against T.F. North who won earlier in the season. “That was a jaw-dropping performance,” Maniatis said of T.F. North’s win. “They are a very talented team. It will take a Herculean effort to beat them — but they’re playing in our gym.”
