Pacific began its title defense at the Lindbergh Girls Basketball Tournament with a victory over the host team.

The fifth-seeded Lady Indians (9-5) held the lead throughout the game in a 59-47 win Monday over fourth-seeded Lindbergh.

Pacific lost to Lindbergh earlier in the season at the Seckman Tournament.

“The first time we played them, we were 1-17 from three-point range. We shot the ball much better this time, especially in the first half,” said Pacific Head Coach Josh Spuhl. “We were 6-10 from the three-point line in the first half, which really helped us build a lead. They never got closer than 10 points in the second half.” Pacific will play top-seeded St. Charles in the championship semifinals Wednesday at 6:30 p.m.

Second-seeded Sullivan and third-seeded Jackson meet in the other semifinal contest Wednesday at 8 p.m.

The Lady Indians defeated St. Charles in the championship game last season at Lindbergh.

“It should be a good game against St. Charles. They have one of the better post players around in Gabby Walker. It will be a good matchup between her and Kya (Hill),” Spuhl said. “They’ll press us and push the ball up the floor. It probably will be an up-and-down game.”

Kya Hill led Pacific against Lindbergh with 16 points, 14 coming in the second half.

Ellen Rogers scored 11 points, all in the first half.

Meagan Wakefield also scored 11 points.

Kate Cookson chipped in with nine points. Ashley Hill netted six points. Hunter Kelemen scored five points. Brigid Toney had one point.

“Ellen had a great game. She had three three-pointers in the first half,” Spuhl said. “Hitting those outside shots were important because it took them out of their zone and made them go man-to-man, which really opened things up for Kya in the second half.”

Pacific held leads of 25-18 after one quarter and 37-27 at halftime.

“We did a good job building a lead and not letting them back in the game in the second half,” Spuhl said. “Now we get a day of practice and then get ready to play Wednesday against St. Charles.”
