Lake Central's girls basketball team has won 16 sectional championships, the last one coming in 2015.
E.C. Central has won nine sectional titles, the last one coming in 2012. Joe Huppenthal led the Cardinals to five of those sectional titles at E.C.
Now, Huppenthal is coaching at Lake Central as the two Region titans battle Saturday night for the Class 4A Crown Point Sectional title.
The Indians beat the Cards 51-35 on Dec. 13.
In the first game, which marked the return of E.C.'s Jenasae Bishop from a knee injury, the flashy points guard scored her team's first 12 points.
But L.C. had its own marksmen in Lauren Ladowski, who scored the Indians' first 10 points before finishing with 12.
