Defensive switch fruitful for Geneva girls basketball
ST CHARLES – The Geneva girls basketball team went back to man-to-man basics on Thursday, and it paid off in its 63-39 win over St. Charles East in Thursday’s IHSA Class 4A St. Charles East Regional final.
The two teams split their regular-season meetings with East’s smaller, guard-heavy lineup proving to be troublesome for the Vikings in both overtime contests.
After trailing 29-28 at half, Geneva finally figured it out defensively in the third quarter, holding the Saints to three points – all on free-throws – for the first 7:30 before East’s Amanda Hilton knocked down a floater in the lane. By then, the damage had been done as the Vikings turned a one-point deficit into a 46-34 lead after three.
