Benton Central High School Lady Bison in IHSAA girls state basketball finals!
The Lady Bison defeated defending state AAA champs Fort Wayne Concordia by a score of 42-39 in last week's Elkhart Semi-state.
Benton Central will take a 20 game win streak into the state finals on Saturday against Evansville Memorial which has a 27-1 record. The Bison sport a 23-1 record with their only defeat belonging to McCutcheon in the JC Hoops Classic.
Benton Central last played for the state championship in 1989.
Don't have a GPS to get to the Fort Wayne War Memorial Coliseum to watch the championship game?
*** You can follow the fan bus that will leave the Benton Central High School Parking lot at 2pm on Saturday, March 5th. (make sure you are early so you don't miss the bus!)
*** The easiest route for most area fans of Greater Lafayette and Benton County once you get to Logansport is to:
--take U.S. Highway 24 EAST to Fort Wayne
--24 East becomes Interstate 69 North
--Take Exit 111 South(Northrup St.)
--Turn left onto Business Highway 24/30 East
--The War Memorial Coliseum is on your right about a half mile.
Game time is 6pm and tickets are $15 so why not stick around for the AAAA final game at 8PM!
GOOD LUCK, BENTON CENTRAL LADY BISON!
