Setting up for Wild Finish in Girls Hoops
With just over two weeks remaining in the 2018-19 Circle City Conference girls basketball campaign, there are still four teams with a mathematical chance to bring home the title. Both previous champions remain in the hunt as well as two teams looking for their first crown. Although there are only five conference games left, there are several ways the final standings could turn out.
The defending champions, Heritage Christian, currently sit at 3-1. They will face Brebeuf Jesuit (0-2) on the 15th at Brebeuf. A victory and a Roncalli win over Covenant Christian would secure their second consecutive title.
The inaugural champions, Roncalli, are 2-1. They face Bishop Chatard on the 16th at home and Covenant Christian on the road on the 18th. They would need victories in both games and a Heritage Christian loss to Brebeuf to finish in first.
Covenant Christian (3-1) is the owner of the sole conference victory over Heritage Christian. A victory over Roncalli and a Bishop Chatard loss in either of their two remaining games would bring the title to the conference newcomers in their first season.
Bishop Chatard (2-1) needs victories over Roncalli and Brebeuf as well as Covenant Christian to beat Roncalli. If these things occurred and Heritage Christian loses to Brebeuf, they would win the title outright. If Heritage Christian were to defeat Brebeuf, there would be a three-way tie for first at 4-1 between Bishop Chatard, Covenant Christian, and Heritage Christian. Each team would have one loss and one win against the other two. The next tiebreaker is defensive points allowed. Currently, Heritage Christian is averaging 41.25, Bishop Chatard is averaging 44.33, and Covenant Christian is averaging 44.25.
