IRC girls' victory nearly without flaw

LARGO — At halftime, Indian Rocks Christian coach Phil Farver often takes out his whiteboard to illustrate what the team did wrong during the first 16 minutes.

Lately though, the whiteboard has been collecting dust.

That's because during IRC's past three games, all comfortable victories, the Golden Eagles have played so doggone well in the opening frame there hasn't been much to criticize.

"At the half, I have very little to talk about right now," Farver said.

In Friday night's 58-14 win over Calvary Christian, IRC was nearly perfect on both ends of the court during the opening two quarters in building a 43-12 lead. At one point, the Golden Eagles (13-4) ran off 19 straight points. After IRC stretched its lead in the third quarter, a running clock was used the rest of the way.

What did the Golden Eagles do so well? Just about everything.

Passes were crisp, the movement without the ball led to numerous layups and the outside shooting was on. On defense, the Golden Eagles challenged seemingly every shot, worked hard for rebounds and had incredibly active hands, which led to several steals that they turned into fastbreak buckets.

"Our defense is our best offense," IRC guard Jess Logemann said.

It certainly was Friday against an overwhelmed Calvary Christian (8-4).

"Our goals are to keep opponents under double digits in every quarter and play good defense," Farver said.

Check and check.

Logemann led IRC with 16 points. Kristen Scholl and Tori Trador added 13 each.

    PITTSBURGH — Determining whether top draft pick Brendan McKay will be more productive as a pitcher or a hitter or can handle the demands of doing both professionally will be a long endeavor that could take years.
