Heritage Patriots (0-4) at Whitko Wildcats (4-2), Tuesday, November 21st, 7:30 p.m.
Tuesday looks to be another tough task for the Patriots when they take on a Whitko team that has already taken four games this season. The Pats struggled to hold on to possession Saturday against Bellmont and were unable to get good looks at the basket.
Whitko has shown the ability to really put some points on the board at this point in the season, with three of their wins coming in absolute blowouts. Their two losses are to two quality opponents in Columbia City and Central Noble.
There is virtually no recent history between these schools when it comes to girls basketball. The matchup is a new one on the schedule this year for coach Sisson’s team. The two schools have only met once in the past 25 years and that came when Whitko was a 3A team in the same sectional as the Patriots.
Players to Watch
The Wildcats have three players averaging in double figures, with guard Adriyanna Phillips leading the way at 11.8 points per game. Jayma Stonebreaker, who is just a freshman, leads the team in shooting at just short of 50%, while senior point guard Kloe Krieg is on pace to finish her career as a 1,000-point scorer.
Trinitee Brown has been the biggest surprise for Heritage early on in the season. The freshman is leading the team in scoring and has shown the ability to handle the ball and create shots for teammates.
