FORT WAYNE, Ind. - As the girls basketball season nears the halfway mark, conference play is heating up. It is no different in the Summit Athletic Conference.

Both South Side and Northrop come into their showdown Friday undefeated.

The Lady Archers (9-0) are off to their best start in school history. South Side pulled off a major home win against Indianapolis powerhouse Heritage Christian last Saturday. In their other 9 games, the Archers have won by a average margin of 24.7 points.

It is a similar case at Northrop, where the Lady Bruins are 10-0 for the first time since 2004-05. It has been quite the turnaround for Northrop’s seniors, who just 1 varsity win as freshman. Northrop fields a 23.6 average margin of victory.

Friday night’s game at Don Reichert Gymnasium could go a long way in deciding the regular season SAC championship; as well as give some important momentum heading into the Parkview Sports Medicine SAC Holiday Tournament after Christmas. Tipoff is scheduled for 6 p.m.
