Girls basketball: Red Raiders carry Valley banner to Elite Eight

Red Raiders carry Valley banner to Elite Eight

(Continued)

The Red Raiders quick passing offense allowed for lanes to open up against the Lady Tigers and for Lourdes to make easy baseline buckets.

In addition, that uptempo game that Lourdes plays creates a handful of turnovers. In the last two games alone, Lourdes has forced 59 turnovers and swiped away 31 balls, including 11 from Schultz.

"She's a very gifted athlete," Klembara said of Schultz. "She shoots the ball really well, hit many clutch baskets for us. (On Wednesday night) she hit some good baseline buckets for us and did the same thing against Sayre in our district final. But she also rebounds well. She has a multitude of steals and she just gets better and better as far as assists go."

Regardless, however, of speed and quickness, Lourdes will have a tough test against the Indians today.

"They've got a multitude of scorers. Girard had two, this team has three, possibly four, maybe five (scorers)," Klembara.

"They get contributions from everyone. They're a high-scoring team, probably score more points than any team we've played all year long."

The Indians scored 63 in their first-round win over Juniata Valley and scored 73 on Wednesday against Halifax.

Whoever comes out on top of today's quarterfinal will advance into the semifinals to play the winner of the Steelton-Highspire/Tri-Valley game at a time and site to be determined on Tuesday.
