Don’t blame the Borgia basketball Lady Knights if they thought they were the visiting team Thursday night.

But despite a slow start, Borgia (5-1, 1-0) managed to roll past Archdiocesan Athletic Association Large Division rival Bishop DuBourg, 56-24.

The biggest highlight for the Lady Knights was senior Janie Arand scoring her 1,000th career point.

“It was a good crowd and we’re glad everyone came out to support us and to support Janie making her 1,000th point tonight,” Borgia Head Coach Stacia Parsell said.

Arand reached the milestone on a free throw with 4:24 remaining in the first half.

“I’m really excited,” Arand said. “I’m really glad I got to do this on our home floor. The most important thing was that we won.”

It was the first Borgia girls basketball home game since Feb. 13, 2013. It hadn’t been planned that way though. Borgia had been scheduled to host Bishop DuBourg Dec. 13, but the game was called due to impending winter weather.

Fortunately, the teams were able to reschedule for Thursday night.

“We got to open 2014 at home, which has been a long time coming,” Parsell said. “It was against a conference opponent, so that’s a good way to start a year, too. You would think we were still on the road the way we shot in the first quarter.”

Borgia has two games scheduled for next week with another home game against St. Clair Wednesday night. The Lady Knights hit the road again next Friday to visit Rosati-Kain in an AAA Large Division game.

The Lady Knights compete in the Union Tournament starting Monday, Jan. 13.

In Thursday’s home victory, the Lady Knights opened the contest with the first nine points. Sophomore Megan Jensen accounted for five of those points while junior Cassandra Halsted and Arand each scored two points.

That was by design as Parsell remembered that last season’s post player, Katie Lindemann, scored 56 points in two games against DuBourg last season.

“We talked about how they tried to take Janie out of the game last year,” Parsell said. “We just focused our attention on Katie Lindemann last year. It was tough for us to find Megan. They had solid inside defenders. We had to find Megan on some extra cuts and she was able to score off of rebounds as well.”

DuBourg started to come back and by the end of the first quarter, Borgia held a 13-7 advantage.

Arand, who scored four of the five points she needed to reach 1,000 during the first quarter, drove to the net and was fouled with 4:24 left in the half.

“We knew she could manage that easily tonight,” Parsell said.

Hitting the first free throw triggered a timeout to give her the game ball and celebrate the moment. After a timeout for a photo, Arand made the second free throw and helped Borgia take a 21-12 lead at the intermission.

Borgia started to come together in the third quarter. The Lady Knights opened on an 8-3 run with one of the baskets by Halsted coming on a quick passing play which involved multiple Borgia players.

Senior Emily Grahl made three steals in a row and finished off two of the baskets on layups.

“Emily Grahl loves to be able to get run outs,” Parsell said. “She doesn’t ever get tired, so you can keep her going. She would do that all night if you gave her the chance.”

By the end of the third quarter, Borgia held a 43-19 advantage. The 22-point outburst was more than the Lady Knights scored in the first half and still more than DuBourg had scored through the first three quarters.

Borgia continued to add to its advantage in the final quarter and activated the running clock, which hastened the end in a 56-24 victory.

Janie Arand led the scoring charge with 15 points while adding eight rebounds, two assists and two steals.

“Janie came in as a freshman and was known as a scorer,” Parsell said. “She’s developed into a very fine all-around basketball player. She will lead us in nights in scoring, rebounding and scoring. She is very unselfish and extremely competitive. She has a volleyball championship and has been to the state tournament in basketball. She is an all-around determined player. I can’t say enough good things about what she does for us.”

Grahl scored 13 points with five steals and two rebounds.

Jensen and sophomore Kaylee Heggemann scored seven points apiece. Jensen also had seven rebounds, three assists and one steal. Heggemann added four rebounds and two steals.

Halsted ended with six points, three rebounds, one assist and one steal.

Junior Molly Arand scored five points, three assists and three steals.

Junior Holly Swartz netted two points with two rebounds.

Junior Josie Krawitz scored one point with two rebounds.

Sophomore Allison Stapel played, but did not score.

Senior Hailey Barnes led DuBourg with eight points.

Sophomore Megan Huelsing ended with seven points, sophomore Raven Holmes scored six and sophomore Jill Jordan had three points.
