CORRECTION: Indian Hills’ Ella Riggs did not play in the game. I was reading old news that was featured on the team’s web page. Riggs graduated last year.

Loveland, Ohio – Haven’t seen the 2023 “Our Way” edition of Loveland High School Women’s basketball? Here is a photo sampling of the fierce play you’ve missed.
The Tigers are currently in 3rd place in the tough Eastern Cincinnati Conference with an 8-3, 11-4 record.
This past Monday they defeated Turpin on the Tiger court 39-36 and overwhelmed the Little Miami Panthers on the road, 54-39 on January 12. At home, on January 10 they defeated Winton Woods 37-36. And, on January 5 defeated Milford on the Tiger court 45-43.
That’s a 4 game-winning streak and 6 wins in their last 7 games.
The women travel tonight to nearby Indian Hill to take on their all-time leading scorer, Ella Riggs who on January 7 set the Braves record with 1638 career points. This is a non-conference game against the 5-4, 9-4 Braves, who are on a 8-win and 1-loss streak in the Cincinnati Hills League.
In the Tiger win over Turpin Olivia Rabe scored 16. At Little Miami, she scored 23 and pulled down 13 rebounds, had 5 assists and steals, and blocked 4 shots. She leads the ECC averaging 3.6 blocks per outing.
Jose Early scored 13 against Turpin and is second in the ECC with 4.1 assists per game. She is first among ECC opponents with 3 steals per game.
The scoring was spread out in the Winton Woods game with Katy Wilber, Olivia Raby, and Josie Early scoring 9 each and Sophia Kapszukiewicz adding 7.
For high school basketball fans, know that this Tiger team is aggressively smart and disciplined under the co-coaching staff of Keith Braswell and Brad Early.
The next home game for the Tigers is Monday, January 23 vs Anderson, however, Indian Hill High School is a close enough venue, and it will be a short journey to see some incredible athletes tonight. The game time is 7:30.
