The first half? Not so good The second half? The Joliet Catholic girls basketball team appeared ready to make a strong run through the Class 3A playoffs.
The Angels committed 10 turnovers in the first quarter, 14 in the first half, and led underdog Oak Forest only 26-25 at the half.
But after a good old-fashioned halftime talking-to from the coaching staff, the Angels exploded in the second half and ran away with an 81-48 victory Monday night in the semifinals of the Coal City Sectional.
Next up for JCA (20-8) is a matchup against Rich South in Thursday’s sectional final at Coal City. The Angels will take the court at 7 p.m.
