Hobart senior Morgan Flaharty has committed to the Indiana Northwest basketball team.

Flaharty, a 6-foot forward, is averaging 10 points, 6.7 rebounds and 2.2 steals a game for the Brickies this season.

"We identified Morgan early on in her high school career as a talented and versatile post player that will fit perfectly with the talented young backcourt players that we have in our program," IU Northwest coach Ryan Shelton said in a media release. "She is a strong rebounder and has an offensive skill set where she can post up on the blocks as well as step out and has range to 3-point distance."

Flaharty will join Brickie teammate Grayce Roach on the RedHawks roster next season.

Kankakee Valley 73, North Judson 43: Bethany Jansma scored 23 points to go with nine assists, six steals and five rebounds as the Kougars (8-4) clipped the Bluejays (3-8). Breanna Toppen and Lauren Stokes added 19 and 17 points, respectively, for K.V.
