Full-force effort impressive as Maine West rolls
Jan 8, 2016 11:19 PM -
With 14 players seeing action in the first half and scoring 40 points in those 16 minutes, Maine West's girls basketball team put itself in some elite company on Friday night. "The last time that happened may have been with our 1988 team," said Warriors Hall of Fame coach Derril Kipp, who was referring to his undefeated Class AA state championship team. "And we haven't had enough girls healthy to do that earlier this year." The big first half -- sparked by 15-of-29 shooting from the floor -- helped pave the way to a 67-39 victory at Highland Park to raise the Warriors record to 5-0 in the Central Suburban North and 12-6 overall.
