ELKHART — The Central girls basketball team jumped on rival Memorial early, grabbing a surprising 16-6 lead after one quarter.

Khadijah Moore had a big night for the Chargers, scoring 23 points — 12 in the second quarter — and grabbing 11 rebounds while Victoria Kyle chipped in nine points and six steals.

Khyana Sanders topped the Blue Blazers with eight points.
