Berries' NCC win streak on the line against Tribe

No. 6 Logan hosts Anderson for key league game

In the last few years the Anderson game been one of the most intriguing matchups of the season for Logansport’s girls basketball team.

It has also has decided the North Central Conference championship.

Class 4A No. 6 Logansport (7-0, 1-0 NCC) hosts Anderson (5-2, 2-0) for a 1:30 p.m. varsity tipoff on Saturday.

“Anderson is good, they’re really good, but we’re good too,” Logan coach Jerry Hoover said. “Wooden talks about the thrill of competition and getting ready where you’ve got two good teams where both have good players and both have good coaches and both have good situations. Hey, that’s what it’s about. That’s Indiana basketball.”

The Berries enter on a 15-game NCC winning streak. They are led by their No. 15, Whitney Jennings, who surpassed the 2,000-point career scoring mark in Tuesday’s 59-45 win at Harrison.

Only 27 Indiana high school girls basketball players have reached the 2,000-point mark. Jennings, with 2,022 points, is the 24th all-time leading scorer in state history seven games into her senior season.

“I didn’t really know I was close until last night,” Jennings said. “I think coming into high school I didn’t really have total point expectations so I probably have surpassed all of those that I set for myself.”

There are only three players ahead of Jennings on the all-time list that played at current Class 4A schools, led by South Bend Washington’s Skylar Diggins, who is third all-time at 2,790 points. Richmond’s Lisa Shepherd is the NCC’s all-time leading scorer with 2,140 points.

Caleb Springer is Logan’s overall all-time leading scorer with 2,042 points on the boys side. He is ranked 33rd all-time and there are 41 boys that have scored at least 2,000 points.

Hoover said Jennings is the first player he’s ever coached to reach the 2,000-point milestone.
