It was all about middles for the Monticello High School girls basketball team last week.
The middle game of a three-game week proved to be the best one for the Panthers, who scored a 59-45 victory over archrival Anamosa Thursday, Jan. 19 at Anamosa. The game was a makeup from a postponement on Dec. 10.
And in that game, the middle two quarters made the difference. The Panthers (8-5, 10-6) trailed 10-7 after one quarter, but in the second and third period, outscored the Blue Raiders 39-21 and were in control from then on.
