York did just that, with Walsh and John Milling being the primary beneficiaries. Both scored eight points before intermission, with Walsh making four straight inside baskets and Milling knocking down three in row from the perimeter.
The Dukes scored the first 11 points of the game, led 21-5 at one point and shot 67 percent from the floor in the first half and 60 percent overall. It was a far cry from the first meeting between the two teams, which Downers North won 58-56 in double overtime.
“We were a little frustrated over that loss and we knew we had to come out, play strong and play hard,” said Walsh, who finished with a team-high 13 points to go with five rebounds. “We thought they were going to come out and do the same and we just played harder.”
