|The Crown Point Lady Bulldogs' starting lineup is about to be announced prior to their game at Michigan City Friday, 01-10-2020.|
|Crown Point junior guard Alyna Santiago (wearing white hat and holding crutches) watched the game from a wheelchair from the south corner of the MCHS gym. Santiago had successful surgery for an ACL injury suffered Dec. 7 at Fremd, Illinois.|
|The Crown Point Lady Bulldogs built up a 47-25 halftime lead en route to their final 77-48 victory over the host Lady Wolves Jan. 10 at Michigan City High School.|
|The plaque outside the Michigan City High School gym indicates there's plenty of seating capacity for sporting events. There were about 500 in attendance towards the end of the CP-MC girls basketball game and maybe a few hundred more for the boys game that followed at 7:30 p.m. on 01-10-2020. A cold windy rain undoubtedly kept a few folks away.|
