Not much movement in the rankings this week. Silver Creek continues to flex its muscle against whoever stands in their way. Each night a different player steps up. Last week it was Marissa Gasaway, this week Alana Striverson had 2 great games and Jaclyn Emly had a huge game against Seymour with 6 3's. Bedford was idle. Salem continued it balanced attack and getting even more help from the others not named Noel, Sweeney, or Ratts. A battle for the MSC is brewing on January 9th at Silver Creek. North Harrison had a battle against the Muskateers of Eastern. Ali Saunders came up huge to lead her Cougars to a hard fought 53-50 win. The loss dropped Eastern 1 spot in our SoIn weekly rankings.

Charlestown was idle while Scottsburg and Madison got its first wins of the season. Jade Nutley had a monster game with 31 points and 12 boards.
After the first week of the season we have already had some movement in the rankings. Silver Creek shows that with its new addition, Marissa Gasaway who is a double double machine, that they are primed to have a long stay at that #1 spot in SoIn. They finish November with 2 tough MSC opponents, Charlestown and then North Harrison, before the big showdown with BNL on December 17. Bedford started its season by crushing Lanesville with their highly touted Freshman, Chole Spreen, leading the way with 20 points. Lanesville, playing up 3 classes, had a solid effort from Gracie Adams and will be the team to beat in 1A. Salem started its state runner up campaign with a victory over Seymour. The key to Salem this year will be balance. Natalie Noel, Abigail Ratts, and Karly Sweeney led the way with 11, 7, and 14 respectively. North Harrison, led by its Dynamic Duo of Ali Saunders and Diana Burgher, topped its opening game against old NH coach Missy Voyles and the Jeffersonville Red Devils. Both players scored 19 points in the win. Charlestown made a debut in the rankings by beating Jade Nutley and her Madison Cubs. Nutley had 21 points but that wasn't enough against the young and talented Pirates. Skylar Cocharan had 20 with Kennedy Coleman chipping in 13 for the Pirates. The loss drops Madison down the rankings which allowed the 2-0 Eastern Muskateers to move up. Coach McBride once again has a solid, competive squad. Scottsburg was idle while Crawford County with 2 losses dropped out of the rankings.
