Salem girls basketball rolls to victory over Brownstown Central
CHARLESTOWN, Ind. – Hope Tomlinson picked an opportune time to drop a season-high 22 points on Brownstown Central while her Salem teammates looked proficient in a rarely used man defense for a 59-50 3A sectional championship win at Charlestown.
Brownstown (16-9) began lighting it up from behind the arc in the third quarter. After watching the team drain 10 of 15, Salem coach Jerry Hickey knew it was time to turn up the heat.
“With the way they were hitting those 3s, we couldn’t let them keep that up, so I had to call a timeout in the third,” Hickey said. “I had already told the girls at halftime this was a heck a of great game. I bet we haven’t played 10 minutes of man defense all season, but we practice it every day just in case you have to pull it out of your back pocket.”
Salem (22-3), ranked No. 2 in Class 3A and the defending sectional champions, will play again next week in the regional back at Charlestown.
Katherine Benter’s 3-pointer with 2:31 left in the third gave the Braves a 44-40 lead, and Hickey had seen enough.

The switch was made, and Salem allowed just six points the rest of the game.
Meanwhile, Tomlinson wanted the ball in her hands on offense, and the Lions obliged.
“My freshman year I can tell you I got made fun of because I was flat awful at playing man defense, and I’ve worked so hard on it. I still don’t like it but had to step up tonight since we needed it,” Tomlinson said, clutching the championship trophy.
“This feels great, but honestly I expected us to win this game because I have a great group of girls with me and it is great to carry this over from last year,” she said.
Hickey is the first to tell you his junior guard is extremely nervous going into games, and Tomlinson would not disagree.
“I get so nervous when I’m getting ready before the game; I’m pacing, sweating, no matter if an easy game or sectional championship, I’m a nervous wreck," Tomlinson said. “But when that ball goes up it all seems to go away.”
Salem briefly opened the game with a full court press and swarming pressure defense, forcing four first quarter turnovers as Collette Nice got two blocks in the first minute.

The hope was to tire the Lady Braves early on.
Brownstown’s shooters had other ideas.
With the score knotted 11-11, Tayler Garland opened the second quarter with consecutive 3-pointers for Brownstown, starting a back-and-forth scoring exchange resulting in three ties and four lead changes in the last four minutes.
That followed a technical when Salem’s Karley Sweeney drove the lane and was fouled but retaliated by throwing an elbow. Sweeney made her foul shots, and Benter sank the technical foul shots for the Lady Braves.
Tomlinson added a 3-pointer for Salem with 41 seconds left and Benter a layup just before the buzzer to knot the game at 30-30 at the half. Tomlinson had 15 in the half and Garland 12.
Brownstown got 3-pointers from four different players to open the third quarter, building a 44-40 lead.
Nice had been saddled with fouls much of the game, but her 3-point play to end the third closed the gap to 44-43. The junior hauled down 11 rebounds, including 10 on the defensive end.
Tomlinson with a catch-and-shoot 3-pointer from the corner with 4:30 left in the game gave Salem its first lead in over 9 minutes.
Salem turned up the pressure again to start the final quarter and Tomlinson led the charge for the Lady Lions with seven straight points to take a 50-44 lead with 3:15 left in the game.

“Over the past three games, I’ve been shooting really well so I just wanted it in my hands tonight, and what better time to get a season high than in a championship?” Tomlinson said with a grin.
The Lions played keep-away from there, forcing Brownstown to burn its fouls while converting free throws including 17 of 20 for the game. They also hit 18 of 40 from the field for 45.0 percent and claimed the rebounding edge 27-24.
Garland, Brownstown’s all-time leading 3-point scorer, finished with 15 points draining 5 of 7 from long range. Ashley Schroer added 11 points and Benter 10. The Braves hit just 15 of 39 field goals.
“We just have to focus on the game ahead game one in the regionals and not the regional championship,” Tomlinson said. “We’ll be ready to take on whoever in round one.”

With all its running, twisting, turning, and jumping, basketball is one of the hardest games on feet. Different movements put all the areas of the foot at risk. That is why proper conditioning, stretching, and well-fitted shoes are critical to a healthy enjoyment of the sport.
Ankle sprain is a particularly common injury in basketball. But the repeated shock and pressures on the foot can also lead to inflammations, including Achilles tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, and sesamoiditis.
Foot and ankle stability, shock absorption, and traction are the most important qualities for basketball shoes. If you are susceptible to ankle injuries, consider a high-top or three-quarter shoe that provides added support to key foot structures during play. Look for shoes that offer the following:
- A wide toe box with plenty of room for your toes to move around. Not enough room can lead to blisters, corns, and calluses.
- Lightweight, breathable material for uppers; generally, leather is recommended.
- Dense, abrasion-resistant soles that are low to the ground for better traction and support.
- A well-cushioned midsole for a shock-absorbing layer. An EVA or EVA-compressed layer is lightweight but not as durable or stable. A polyurethane layer has greater stability, but it is often heavier, too.
- Bend in the forefoot of the shoe, which is at the ball of the foot near the toes. Be sure there is less bend in the arch where you need the added support to keep the foot stable.
- A firm heel counter that fits snugly.
- Laces as the form of closure give you the ability to adjust for the support you need throughout the foot.
When buying basketball shoes, be sure to take the socks you plan to wear with them to ensure a proper fit. Have your feet measured standing up and fit the shoes to your larger foot. Walk around, turn, twist, and jump in each pair on a hard surface to see how your foot feels during each of these movements. Most importantly, make your choice based on comfort.
