Section star hurt in Immanuel hoops win
Zoe March, a Bee All-Star point guard last year as a freshman for D-V champion Immanuel, is questionable for the second-seeded Eagles’ Central Section Division IV semifinal at home against No. 3 Taft Tuesday after reinjuring a knee.
March, who had missed the first 11 games of the season with a knee problem, had reached "unrestricted minutes" status for the first time, coach James Stevens said, before "tweaking" the knee in warmups ahead of Thursday's 50-28 win over No. 7 Washington.
She didn’t play in the first half, played the third and came out limping in the fourth.
"She’s on ice and we'll wait and see if there's swelling (Friday)," Stevens said.
Samantha Swan scored 14 points as Immanuel improved to 20-6 with the win over Washington.
