The Class 4A No. 1 Ben Davis girls basketball team is threatening to break the state girls record for consecutive wins. A mark that is currently held by the 1985-87 Northrop team.
The Giants are 19-0 this year and have won 49 straight games dating to the start of last season and could break the record with a second straight state championship.
It all could depend on whether they draw the bye in the 7-team sectional at Indianapolis Manual next Monday.
Assuming the Giants win their remaining two regular season games, the team could set the record with a seven-game postseason run. If they earn the sectional bye, only six post-season games would be available and they would have to wait until next year.
The Giants also have won 56 straight regular-season games dating back to Jan. 10, 2008. They currently sit fifth in that category. Bedford North Lawrence won 88 consecutive from 1988-92.
