LEO-CEDARVILLE — "Leo" is a three-letter word that ends in "o" and Leo's Lions are a three-point team with a whole lot of "O."
That point was driven home at home on Tuesday as the highest-scoring high school team in Indiana (at least five games over 100 . . . and counting) bombarded Adams Central, 104-73.
The 31-point margin was the worst loss of the season for the 9-6 Flying Jets, who carried the Lions into overtime in the ACAC Tourney last month before falling, 86-79.
The final four teams in both area girls basketball sectionals are set with No. 1 Bishop Luers hammering Bluffton at South Adams, 70-22, and 3A No. 4 Norwell blasting Maconaquah 79-14.
At South Adams in Friday's semi-finals, the host Starfires will take on Woodlan at 6 p.m. and Adams Central will meet Luers in the 7:30 p.m. second semi-final contest. At Peru in the 3A tourney there, the host Tigers will meet Wayne while Bellmont will take on Norwell.
The championship games will be Saturday night.
