WHITING | It certainly helps a team win a sectional game when a player doesn't miss a shot.

On Tuesday night, that's what happened in Bishop Noll's 62-29 romp over Hebron in the Class 2A Whiting Sectional opener through three quarters for sophomore guard Naomi House.

She scored a game-high 20 points on 9-of-10 shooting, including two 3-pointers.

"Over the summer it was just basketball, basketball," said House, who added four rebounds, three assists and four steals. "I'm trying to work even harder in sectionals, improving on the offensive boards, getting better passes and my driving."

The lead constantly grew as every period concluded for the Warriors (18-3).

After jumping out to a 17-4 lead after one, the Warriors started hitting shots from everywhere in the second quarter, as they hit five consecutive in one stretch and opened a 22-point lead at the half.

Hebron (7-12) committed 16 turnovers in the first half.

"We can't start talking about our offense without our defense," Bishop Noll coach Vanita Gary said. "We got some easy buckets in transition, because our defensive pressure was strong to start."

House tallied half of Noll's 16 second-quarter points.

"Naomi did exactly what we need her to do in the postseason: to keep the energy high and make shots for us," Gary said.

Nine players scored for the Warriors, including senior forward Asya Hobbs, who added 10.

The Hawks had three players lead them in scoring with six apiece, including senior guard Shelyby Yankauskas, who scored all of hers in the fourth quarter.
