Friday night, Mishawaka Marian and South Bend Saint Joseph matched up in the second Sectional #19 Semi-Final game at John Glenn High School. In their head-to-head meeting back on January 7, it was St. Joe escaping with a 66-63 overtime victory, but this time the tables would turn. While the final score was a 58-46 margin, it wasn't really that close throughout.

Marian came out burying shot after shot like a machine, while St. Joe couldn't get anything to fall. Marian scored at the 1:11 mark in the first quarter to make it 18-0, and it wasn't until Keegan Sullivan's (2020) basket with 38 seconds left in the period that St. Joe was finally on the scoreboard. Once the first quarter came to an end, the score read 18-2, and St. Joe was just 1-16 from the field after missing their first 14 shot attempts. Christina Himelick (2020) was huge for Marian in the first, knocking down a pair of 3-pointers and scoring eight points in the period.

The middle quarters weren't much more exciting, as Marian outscored the Indians 12-8 in the second to lead 30-10 at halftime. St. Joe was a paltry 0-16 from 3-point range and 0-2
