Lemont moves on to Regional Championship

PARK FOREST - Lemont came out scoring using their height advantage over the speed of the Lady Stars in the second game of the Rich East Sectionals. But the Lady Stars, behind 5'7" senior Niara Harris kept pushing the ball right at them. "I saw a lot of open lanes and took advantage," said Harris. "Coach told me to stay aggressive and to continue to shoot."

Ms. Harris led all scorers at the half with 11 points.

In the second half, Erin Stahurski answered right back using her 5'11" frame to score 27 points and 10 rebounds on the evening followed by sophomore Annie Forzley's 11. ''They were passing the ball to me well down low, they were getting the ball to the right hand. We worked really well together,'' Stahurski said.

''Erin is a load inside,'' Lemont coach Bill Bozue said. ''We had a chance to get her a couple more baskets but we either fumbled the ball or made a bad pass. We got excellent guard play, we bring three sophomores off the bench and they play a ton for us.''

Niara Harris has 24 points in her last game for Rich South (18-9) which did bring the game within reach, 52-49 with less than 40 seconds left. Taheerah Ali had 11 points for the Stars also in her final game. "I'm just grateful to come play for a team that accepted me," said the Lewis University recruit.

In the end, the Indians presence and height in the paint was too much for the stars. Final Score.... Lemont 57 Rich South 52.

After the game Coach Mays reminded the team "that they were champions... hold your head up high. We accomplished a lot of things this season and our lost tonight was not from a lack of effort."

The stage is set... Regional championship Thursday, February 26, 2009 between Lemont Indians vs. Hillcrest Lady Hawks... We will see you there at the baseline.
