However, Tecumseh still went into the second quarter holding a 17-11 lead. Tecumseh kept the Maples off the scoreboard in the second quarter and gave up just four points in both the third and fourth quarters en route to the win.“That’s our foundation. That’s where we start from, our defense. Then we go from there,” said Tecumseh coach Griff Mills. “Overall, I thought it was a great 11 person win tonight. All of our kids played hard and got in there. It was a nice team win.” There was no real standout in the contest with the Indians spreading the wealth when attacking the net. Both Olivia Mills and Maddie Tedora scored seven points while Morgan Skelton finished with six points.Carley LaPlant recorded six rebounds, five points and two assists while Kayla Kormos added five points.Nicole Lipnichan had six rebounds, two assists and five points.With a solid lead in the fourth quarter, Mills swapped out his starting five and everyone got time on the hardwood.“Everybody got some playing time,” said Mills. “It was fun.”Mills said the Indians tried a few different things against the Maples, applying as much defensive pressure as possible.“We’re going to continue to look to do that,’ he said. “That’s where we’ve been kind of waiting to get to. We just haven’t been ready to do that yet... We’re starting to get better. The kids are starting to get comfortable with some of the things that we are doing.”The Indians have six days of practice to prepare for their next game scheduled for Friday, Jan. 24 at home against Lincoln.
